Central Russia

4.3
Located in the far west of the country and formed around the Moscow Princedom in the 15th century, Central Russia is Russia's historical core and still the seat of Russian politics and economics. Tourists are mostly drawn to the metropolis of Moscow, with its mixture of the classical and the modern and a bustling nightlife. Northeast of Moscow lies the Golden Ring, an iconic series of the country's oldest cities unspoiled by industrialization. The historical legacy of picturesque architecture and traditional arts and crafts make these cities popular with travelers searching for an idyllic setting. The region also boasts birthplaces of many famous Russians, including Lev Tolstoy, Sergey Yesenin, Anton Chekhov, and Yuri Gagarin, as well as the sites of the three historic battles: one against the Tatars in 1380, another with Napoleon's army in 1812, and the third with Nazi Germans in 1941. Although there are considerable inequalities between the capital and other cities, some hidden corners of the region have plenty to offer. With our custom trip planner, Russia vacations can be built around trips to Central Russia and other destinations in Russia.
