Russian Cities Attractions: Top 10 Things to See in Moscow
March 15, 2007 13:15

As the capital of the country, Moscow is perhaps the most visited place in Russia. However, not all tourists and city guests may have enough time to visit all worth sightseeings and see all the interesting things that Moscow can offer. In this case, one must know what places of the many it is better to focus on first.

1) Red Square, Kremlin, St. Basil’s Cathedral, Lenin`s Mausoleum. They are considered the symbols of Moscow, located in the very heart and historical centre of the Russian capital. St. Basils Cathedral still lets its visitors feel the spirit of ancient Russia. Lenin`s mausoleum can be of interest too - the body of a Soviet leader always attracts tourists (besides, there are rumours that the mausoleum can be eliminated in the future).

2) Pushkin Fine Arts Museum. Presents original and reproduction arts in thematic halls: Russian, European, Greek, Egyptian, and some other. Presents one of the world’s best ballet and opera with participation of great Russian artists.

3) Kolomenskoye Park. The park is located not far from the metro station Kolomenskaya. Undoubtedly it`d be better to visit the park in summer when it is full of trees, including a nice apple garden. However it is a wonderful place to visit in every season: you can enjoy the views of old Russian architecture and a small but cute cemetery near one of the churches.

4)The Bolshoi Theatre. Presents one of the world’s best ballet and opera with participation of great Russian artists.

5)The Tretyakov Gallery. It is one of the world-famous galleries which presents a vast collection of Russian arts.

6) The Novodevichy Convent. A fascinating place with wonderful architecture and a special cemetery, where a lot of famous Russian people are buried.

7) Vorobyovy Gory. The place is located at the Moscow River (Vorobyovy Gory metro station) and opens a picturesque view of water, hills, trees, and a great panorama of some parts of the city. Considered the highest spot in Moscow, and besides, it is situated not too far from the famous Moscow State University named after Lomonosov, which looks amazing in the evening, when the illuminations are on.

8) Park Pobedy (Victory Park - Kutuzovskaya metro station). A spacious area dedicated to the victory of Russians over the Nazi Germany. Monuments, memorials, fountains (in the warm time of the year), the Victory Museum, military equipment of the Soviet times.

9) Moscow Metro. It`d be better to travel from one metro station to another at weekend, when there are no crowds of people spoiling the view of great architecture and design inherited from the Soviet times. Committing a metro trip in rush hours can be a disaster as Moscow Metro is considered one of the most overcrowded in the world. The most peculiar stations are:





Ploschad Revolutsii




Park Kultury

Kropotkinskaya (always seems to be the least crowded in Moscow metro)

10) VDNKH. A vast area of exhibition halls, located in buildings constructed in the Soviet times and therefore beautiful. Fountains in summer add more charm to the place, but it is still appropriate for having a walk and enjoying the nice planning and architecture of the territoryin in any time of the year. In spring and summer visitors can also find a vast open-air exhibition of beautiful flower compositions.
