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.
One of the most recognisable churches in the world. It’s impressive architecture is a true architectural masterpiece.
You can visit the cathedral (which is technically a museum) and photography is permitted inside.
St. Basil's speaks for itself in all honesty
Red Square is known for its political symbolism, but was actually named for its beauty: Krasnaya, or “red,” meant “beautiful” in old Russian. We visited it in February. It had the GUM skating rink and a market kind of set up in the middle. GUM is facing the Red Square and is also one of the sightseeings you can’t miss....

The Armory chamber on the Kremlin grounds has all the richess that was collected and given as gifts to the Czars of Russia, with their original clothing, thrones, carriages and gifts from ambassadors from all over the world. The bible of Charles the XII of Sweden is in the collection and elaborate gold and silver gifts from all over the...
Cathedral Square is located within the Kremlin walls. It’s the central square where all the streets used to converge in the 15th century. You must (!!!) take a ticket that allows you to enter the cathedrals and churches! You will be stunned by their beauty from the inside. Don’t miss it! Keep the tickets as you gotta show them every...

We had dinner with my wife and one of my boys, while We attended at the World Soccer Cup 2018 and undoubtedly, We had a five-star dining experience in a nice decorated early 20th century interior.
The restaurant is located in the Metropol Hotel and We choose to be seated at the terrace with an open up view to the...
So close to the red square is unique and much appreciated!
Personal and.service top. SPA of very high quality, swimming pool amazing
Breakfast excellent, except the breakfast restaurant, with no view outside, too bad!
The St Regis is a very comfortable hotel. The location is wonderful. You can easily walk to many of the main attractions e.g. Bolshoi Theatre, Red Square etc. The staff are wonderful. Everyone is very helpful and attentive. There is a 24 hour butler service available so I was able to have my outfit pressed to attend the opera at...
I stayed in this beautiful hotel in January.
I picked this hotel because of the beautiful architecture and because of its history.
I think it is so much nicer to stay in a hotel with a story than in a chain of hotels as it makes me feel more connected to the place I am visiting.
The service is impeccable...
This is how hotel Moskva looks from the Trinity bridge. I was walking from a concert in the Kremlin Palace on the New Year Eve, about midnight.
Special note for our ever-worrying guests: it’s perfectly safe, I am still in life :)
