Third Rome

Russia's political, economic, and cultural center, Moscow remains the most populous inland city in the world, famed for its colorful history and rich architectural heritage. Home to over 12 million people, the city features an extensive transit network that includes four international airports and one of the deepest underground metro systems in the world. At the heart of Moscow sits a vast complex of historical buildings, fortified by a protective wall dating back to the 12th century. This central part of the city, inscribed on the World Heritage List largely due to its brightly colored church domes and lavishly decorated buildings, serves as the spiritual heart of the country and lures the biggest tourist crowds. With our custom trip planner, Russia vacations can be built around trips to Moscow and other destinations in Russia.

Where to stay

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.
