With its iconic, colourful, onion-shaped domes, St Basil's Cathedral in the Red Square has come to symbolise the city of Moscow. Its architectural origins are steeped in fascinating legends, and the artworks adorning its inner walls are masterpieces.
Also in the Red Square is Lenin's Tomb, the final resting place of Soviet leader Vladimir Lenin. If you don't mind the macabre, take a peek at Lenin's embalmed body, frozen in time and on display to the public.
The Kremlin houses the Russian president, and is a vast building of staggering architectural grandeur. Visitors can explore its museums and gardens, although watch out-Russian guards will be watching your every move!
Built during the Soviet Era, the Moscow Metro was dubbed 'The People's Palace' upon construction, and it's easy to see why. High domed ceilings, intricately engraved wall designs, and even sculptures can be found in the metro, all dedicated to the Russian people.
If you're looking for somewhere to stretch your legs or tire out the kids, take a stroll through Moscow's world-famous Gorky Park. Named after Soviet writer Maxim Gorky, the park recently celebrated its 90th anniversary.
