About Moscow

Moscow has played a pivotal role in Russian History. The city has a lot more to offer than communism. Much of the city had an upheaval and reconstruction after it was taken over by the French. However, it was almost annihilated by a devastating fire and it is fit to say that it has risen from the ashes to become the exhilarating modern city that we see today. Think about Tsars, ornate cathedrals, picture-perfect regal buildings and the 871- year-old capital of Russia comes to mind. A hub of communist power this capital of the erstwhile U.S.S.R. till 1991 continued as Russia's epicentre synonymous with Soviet authority. It embodies the very core of Russia with a sophisticated, visually appealing and vibrant air about it with the likes of the Kremlin, Red Square and Lenin's Mausoleum, Moscow provides a great insight into the old traditional architecture of Europe along with the modern emerging trends and culture. The city has a great cultural heritage with the famous Cathedral of Christ the saviour and famous art museums. The modern atmosphere of the city can be seen with the skyscraper buildings and ultra-modern facilities offered for the tourists. There are multiple options for shopping and gifts to be taken back as memories of the trip.
