    On the square in front of the gate, the Ilinskie Polytechnic Museum stands a Memorial Chapel of St. Alexander Nevsky grenadiers. Octagonal Chapel is molded from cast iron, on top of the installed Orthodox cross. On the sides of the chapel on four gorelefah depicts the epic stories of the Russo-Turkish war of 1877-1878.

Where to stay in Moscow

The capital of Russia and a huge metropolis, Moscow offers a plethora of different types of accommodations. Many renowned hotel chains are represented in the city, and some of its hotels rank among the world's most luxurious and expensive. Those traveling on a more modest budget can choose among the boutique or Soviet-era hotels. There are also numerous hostels and short-term rental apartments throughout the city. When choosing a place to stay, especially if you're only planning for a short visit, always bear in mind the size of Moscow. Staying too far from the center might mean that the precious time you could spend on sightseeing will be wasted in traffic and transport.
