Experience Moscow: what to see, what to do
You may already know a lot about the political history of Moscow but there is much more to this architecturally fantastic city than that. Of course the city is famous for the sights which totally changed, it seems, the history of the world.
Essentials in Moscow
Red Square: Every city tour starts in the Red Square, it's the heart of the city. Surrounding the square is St. Basil Cathedral, Lenin's Mausoleum, the Kremlin with the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, recognised by its impenetrable brick walls.
Old Arbat Street: After visiting these major sights while on holidays in Moscow, take a walk down Old Arbat Street, a souvenir-shopper's paradise. It's all kitsch and beware of the jacked-up prices!
Costmonautics Museum: Sputnik revisited. There's no doubt (except to America) that Russia conquered space. The Cosmonautics Museum was built in the 1960s as a commemorative gesture to Sputnik.

Accommodations in Moscow
Moscow's top hotels deliver luxury services and great amenities... all at a very high price. The truth is that Moscow is in high-demand of some reasonable mid-range hotels. Many are still clad in Soviet-styled decor which... to some is fashionably kitsch.
