A buzzing metropolis that continues to expand, Moscow is the cultural, political and historic heart of Russia. Sprawling out from the Kremlin and Red Square, the city provides an eclectic mix of old and new.

A visit to Moscow is not about relaxation, but about squeezing in as much as you can – whether it is shopping on Old Arbat Street, exploring world class museums, sampling fine dining or enjoying a vibrant nightlife that stretches well into the morning hours.

Every month, Moscow’s calendar is packed with a variety of concerts, theater performances and sporting events.

Moscow also serves as a great base from which to explore the Golden Ring towns of Vladimir, Suzdal, Sergiev Posad and Yaroslavl or kick off a trip on the Trans Siberian Railway.

Practical Information

Moscow sits on the banks of the Moskva River, 393 miles (632 kilometers) southeast of St. Petersburg. Its elevation ranges from 512 feet (156 meters) to 837 feet (255 meters) above sea level.
