Moscow - the capital of Russia, its heart, one of the largest cities in the world, bright, colorful, modern city, where everyone will find something interesting for themselves and where it is impossible to return without an unforgettable experience.

Moscow situated in the center of European Russia, 8 hours by car or train from St. Petersburg, 4 hours by plane from London, 2.5 hours by plane from Berlin (or 36 hours by train), 6 hours by plane from India, 6 days by Trans-Siberian train from Beijing.

With over 40 percent of its territory covered by greenery, it is one of the greenest capitals and major cities in Europe and the world, having the largest forest in an urban area within its borders—more than any other major city.

Moscow is also considered to be the center of Russian culture, having served as the home of prestigious Russian artists, scientists and sports figures during the course of its history and because of the presence of many different museums, academic and political institutions and theaters.

Moscow’s architectural and performing arts culture are world-renowned. Moscow is also well known as the site of the Saint Basil’s Cathedral, with its elegant onion domes, as well as the Cathedral of Christ the Savior.

The Patriarch of Moscow, whose residence is the Danilov Monastery, serves as the head of the Russian Orthodox Church. Moscow also remains a major economic center and is home to a large number of billionaires and is perennially considered one of the most expensive cities in the world. It is home to many scientific and educational institutions, as well as numerous sport facilities. It possesses a complex transport system that includes the world’s busiest metro system which is famous for its architecture. Moscow also became the host of the 1980 Summer Olympics.

Much is done for comfort of moscovites and guests of Moscow: in the streets more and more pedestrian areas are organized; new modern hotels, cafes and restaurants appear. But neither words nor convincing figures, however, can give a complete idea of what had been done in Moscow.

If you have already visited Moscow, you will have the desire to come back again, because it attracts visitors with the atmosphere of the ancient city, which has been poetized and glorified for ages and is still admired by contemporary inhabitants and travelers.
