What to Expect

Moscow’s most popular tourist attraction is floodlit at night and takes on a fairy-tale quality, especially when the cobblestones are dusted with snow and St Basil’s Cathedral is at its edible-looking best. The onion domes and eye-catching brickwork seem so familiar that many tourists confuse the church with the Kremlin and hang around outside hoping to glimpse Vladimir Putin.

For all its cold war imagery, Moscow is moving with the times. Sturdy Stalinist architecture is making way for shimmering skyscrapers and offices; stylish hotels and, in a frenzy of urban renewal, dilapidated apartment blocks are being torn down and residents resettled.

  • An architectural dream tour
  • Stalin's skyscrapers
  • Heritage palatial complexes
  • The ever gorgeous St. Petersburg
