Moscow is situated in the centre of the European part of Russia, on the banks of the Moskva River. The history of Moscow dates back to the 12th century and it is famous for architectural monuments. The heart of the metropolis is the Kremlin which stands on the crest of the Moskva River. It is flanked by the Red Square, which is crowned by the unique and gorgeous St. Basil’s Cathedral.
There are numerous ancient churches and cathedrals in Moscow, as well as beautiful theatres and palace museums next to top modern business complexes and hotels and buildings of late Soviet architecture such as the Moscow State University and the Central Stadium which hosted the 1980 Olympic Games. The Sparrow Hills – the highest place in Moscow – provide a beautiful panorama of the city. Moscow, the capital and the largest city of Russia, is the home for 10 million people. It is also the largest metropolitan area in Europe, and ranks among the largest urban areas in the world. It is the seventh largest city in the world, a megacity.
Do you love music and theater? Moscow is undoubtedly Russia’s theater and music capital. It hosts the country’s main theater, the Bolshoi Theater, as well as the oldest one, the Maly Theater. Local theaters stage over a hundred premiers annually. The Grand Hall of the Moscow Conservatory ranks among the best concert halls in the world, and it also happens to be the most prestigious one in Russia. Hundreds of international, national and local festivals invigorate Moscow annually, with many concerts and performances taking place right in the city’s streets.
Sports fan? Moscow certainly has something to boast in that area, as well. It hosted the Summer Olympic Games in 1980 and the World Youth Games in 1998. All sorts of athletic competitions are held in Moscow, which offers 10 large stadiums, over 200 swimming pools, 40 sports palaces and more than 20 covered ice rinks.
