You have to expeience the Russian Ballet in Moscow. The Bolshoi building was closed, but if you try to find it, you can always find a repreentation of the Swan Lake. Don't miss it even if you have seen it in your own country,

Red Square & Kitay-gorod
This small yet important neighbourhood is full of
state institutions and offices. To understand where
modern Russia began, go to the Kremlin and State
Historical Museum on Red Square. After satisfying your
historical curiosities, indulge in modern pleasures at
GUM Department Store - not just for the sake of
shopping but for the sake of architectural pleasure as
well.
