• Much to see in the Soviet capital of Moscow

    2010-04-22

    With the cessation of Cold War hostilities, Russia has emerged as an interesting and compelling travel destination for many Americans seeking to explore the foreign culture. Travelers venturing to the massive country will find a wealth of exciting opportunities awaiting them in the capital city of Moscow.

    As the 7th largest city in the world, Moscow is a truly cosmopolitan place. It is located on the Moskva River and sits at the junction of three geological platforms. The city has been central to the national heritage, and as such it provides an excellent window into the past and present workings of the country and its people.

    At the center of the city is the iconic Red Square, a central hub which provides tourists with easy access to a number of important cultural sites like the Lenin Mausoleum, St. Basil Cathedral and the Kremlin. Other notable sites in the area include the storied ballet of the Bolshoi theater and the kitschy classic style of Old Arbat Street.

    More modern-minded travelers might enjoy a trip to the stylish and wealthy districts of New Arbat Street, stroll the shops of Tverskaya Street or treat the family to the adventure rides and outdoor games of Gorky Park.
