About Moscow

Moscow is the center of cultural, scientific, political and economic life of Russia. It is believed that the city dates back eight and a half centuries, with the first mention of it in the annals of 1147. Russia’s most intense human aspirations, whether artistic, religious or political, found their most passionate expression in Moscow.

The reflection of these aspirations can be seen in the beautiful architecture created over several centuries, especially in the Moscow symbols-the Kremlin, Red Square and St. Basil’s Cathedral, which should see the sights of Moscow. Here you can find more than 100 monuments (including the famous monument to Minin and Pozharsky on Red Square or “Worker and Kolkhoz Woman “, which is strongly associated with Soviet Russia), many cafes and restaurants, more than 50 fascinating parks and about 700 squares and boulevards.

Modern Moscow is a dynamically developing European city offering modern and historical conference and Congress venues, hotels, restaurants, exhibition grounds and attractions. It is an important transport hub, as well as a political, economic, cultural and scientific center of Russia. The city has 3 airports, 9 railway stations, 3 river ports, as well as an amazing metro system with the first stations built in 1935.

Visiting Moscow you have a great opportunity to touch the Russian soul.
