City Break

Moscow is a city in change. Modernizing itself every passing day that without, however, losing its historical and cultural identity. In the cold winter or short, but mild summer, the Russian capital is a must-see destination. The monuments such as the Kremlin, and cultural dynamics, symbolized by the Bolshoi, are two of its major attractions.

The climate is characterized by harsh winters, with temperatures that could drop to 15 degrees below zero, short mild summers with the mercury hovering around 20 degrees. For this reason you must take into account the objective of your visit and what type of program you want to do in Moscow before traveling. Regardless of the season, there are mandatory sites on a city break trip. You must begin, of course, in the Red Square, accessing to another fantastic site: the Kremlin, a symbol of Moscow and Russia, the Kremlin is also a World Heritage Site. Kremlin occupies approximately 30 acres, gathering in its interior palaces, churches and cathedrals. Open to the public since 1995, it has in front river Moscow, the Red Square to the east and to the west Alexander Garden. From the huge Red Square, you can visit the modern warehouses GUM, St. Basil's Cathedral and Lenin's Mausoleum. A mark of modern days is Zhivopisny Bridge contrasting with the skyscrapers, Stalin towers, known as the "Seven Sisters", along with the classic and romantic ambience of the city. Visit Gorky Park and culturally speaking the Bolshoi, Russia's main theater, Mali, the country's oldest, or the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory, one of the best concert halls in the world, worth a visit.
