Moscow Travel Guide

Where is Moscow?

Before you take off on your adventure to Moscow, it's probably a good idea to know where it is first. (It could also save you from an embarrassing conversation when your friends ask exactly where you're going!)

It's the national capital city of Russia and about 35 miles to the west of the noteworthy city of Noginsk.

As of last count, the population of this area of Moscow Oblast was 10,400,000.

Places to Visit in Moscow

So, what's the first stop? You'd be crazy to leave Moscow without stopping by amazing attractions such as Red Square and Moscow Kremlin.

The Moscow State University and the Bolshoi Theatre are just a few of the terrific attractions in the area. Not really your style? No need to worry — you're spoiled for choice here. Some more top sights are Cathedral of Christ the Savior and the State Historical Museum.

Whether you're making a spiritual pilgrimage or simply curious about what's beyond its doors, visitors are welcome at St. Basil's Cathedral. Why not sit in a pew with other worshipers and attend a mass? Want to keep the good times rolling? If you're a connoisseur of art, your stay cannot end without a tour of Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts. But wait, there's more! There's something mysterious yet intriguing about seeing resting places of the dead. If this sounds like fun to you, stop at Lenin's Mausoleum.
