Everything you need to know to plan your memorable trip to Moscow, Russia
"THE WORLD IS A BOOK AND THOSE WHO DO NOT TRAVEL READ ONLY ONE PAGE." -- St. Augustine
There is hardly anyone in the world who has never heard about Moscow, Russia. The city was founded in 1147 by Prince Yuri Dolgorukiy. Moscow grew from a small town into a giant city with a population of more than 10 million people and an area of more than 900 square km. Russian contrasts are more present here than in any other city. High fashion and a vibrant nightlife co-exist with the relics of the Ancient Kremlin and beautiful cathedrals.
Ever since Constantinople fell to the Ottomans, Russians have been fond of calling Moscow the Third Rome. While it never became the center of a global empire, in modern Russia it’s no exaggeration to say that all roads lead to Moscow. Muscovites reach for superlatives when describing their city. They brag about having the most billionaires, the tallest buildings or the most expensive hotels. After years of growth during which Russia transformed into an economic superpower, Russian capital Moscow has become a world-class destination, flaunting the dynamism of a city with something to prove.
