Today Moscow is drastically changed. It is the largest city in Europe, home to over 12 million Russians. It is so large that you need a good plan in order to see all of its beauties. It is best to start from the heart of the city – the Red Square, with the astonishing church of Saint Basil, a symbol of Moscow, but also of Russia as well. Lenin’s Mausoleum is also there, and even today this is still the prime tourist spot.

Behind the Red Square are the great walls of the Kremlin, a synonym for Russia’s political power. This is the place where the city was founded in 1147. The famous Bolshoi theatre is a must-see, Russians’ warrior past is best seen in the Borodino Battle Panorama Museum, be sure to visit Dostoevsky’s museum and have a cup of coffee in Café Pushkin.

Exclusivity and prestige are seen at every corner of the city: people are drinking fine champagne and expensive branded clothing is a must. Instead of herrings, Muscovites are crazy for sushi, and now you can find sushi restaurants at every corner. You can have a blast here, but have in mind that this is one of the most expensive cities in the world.
