Moscow Highlights

Moscow culture and glamour A thriving commercial center in medieval times, torched by its own people during the Napoleonic Wars, and site of the pivotal 1917 Revolution, Moscow has seen more than its share of changes. This eventful past shows itself wherever you go, from ornate 16th-century churches, to Neo-Classical mansions, to hulking Soviet monuments. With the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, Moscow’s latest transformation has been into a vibrant, consumer-driven European city filled with glamorous nightclubs and fine restaurants.
