Attractions of Moscow
The Moscow Kremlin
The Moscow Kremlin is the heart of Russia's capital, and Europe's largest fortress. It is Moscow's main sightseeing attraction, as well as being an official residence of the President of Russia.
The Tretyakov Gallery
The Tretyakov Gallery is one of the world's largest collections of Russian art, and one of Moscow's cultural landmarks. Today the gallery's collections amount to over 180,000 exhibits, including paintings, drawings, sculpture, and items made from precious metal.
The Armoury Chamber
Don't be misled by the name – the items here are from the former Royal Treasury of the Tsars. They were put on display in the 19th century in a Kremlin building which had previously been a weapons store – and was thus equipped to provide security for the priceless collection.
Kolomenskoye today is a beautiful park, arranged over 390 hectares of land in the southern section of the city. The Kolomenskoye Estate features 19 cultural and historical monuments, of which eleven are of federal significance – and several are UNESCO-listed.
The Pushkin Fine Arts Museum
The Pushkin is Moscow's main collection of foreign art, and one of the world's most celebrated art museums. The collections number over 700,000 exhibits, including paintings, sculpture and modern works up to the 20th century.
The complex of palaces, chambers and palaces known as Tsaritsyno was built on what were then the southern outskirts of Moscow in the 18th century, on the orders of Empress Catherine the Great.
