Moscow is the capital of Russia, the most populated megalopolis in Europe. It is home to 12.5+ million people, and some 22 million tourists come every year to see with their own eyes the city that makes history.
About city
Moscow always welcomes guests!
Nearly 9 centuries has passed since Moscow was mentioned in the annals of Russian history for the first time. Since then it has changed its look more than once, but one thing has remained the same: it is the heart of Russia, a place where live and work outstanding people who have made this country famous the world over. These days Moscow is a major global centre of culture, science, education, industry, entrepreneurship, sports and, to be sure, tourist destination.
Here you can visit famous historical and architectural sites, numerous theatres and museums; take a ride on the Moscow tube, where no fewer than 15 stations have been listed as cultural heritage; take a walk down mall streets and in urban and street parks. For example, you can visit the Zaryadye park – the winner of the Building of the Year 2018 international architectural competition in the Communal Space category. And certainly attend the Moscow Seasons urban festivals.
