The capital of the Russian Federation, Moscow, a unique complex of attractions and a place to become acquainted with the traditions of the Russian people, attracts guests from all over the world. Moscow is one of the rare examples of a city preserving its beauty in perpetuity, whatever events unfold over time. To know more about Moscow’s history, our city sightseeing tour is a must.
The State Tretyakov Gallery is a museum of world significance, with collections running into many thousands of works of art. You’ll find there the icons by Andrei Rublev, the greatest paintings of Aivazovsky, Shishkin, Repin, Roerich and many other talented Russian artists.
Red Square in Moscow is not only an interesting landmark, which attracts tourists from all over the world, but also the arena where significant historical events unfolded. Red Square is often considered the central square of Moscow, because Moscow's major streets—which connect to Russia's major highways—originate from the square. Every capital has a well-known landmark making it easily recognizable. In Moscow, the Cathedral of the Protecting Veil of the Mother of God, better known as the Cathedral of St. Vasily the Blessed (or St. Basil’s Cathedral, as it is often called in English), standing in Red Square is such a landmark. It is for nearly 450 years now that this architectural ensemble of inimitable beauty and grandeur has been filling our hearts with joy, excitement and pride.
Novodevichy Convent, also known as Bogoroditse-Smolensky Monastery is probably the best-known cloister of Moscow. Its name, sometimes translated as the New Maidens' Monastery, was devised to differ from an ancient maidens' convent within the Moscow Kremlin. Unlike other Moscow cloisters, it has remained virtually intact since the 17th century. In 2004, it was proclaimed a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
