Attractions from Moscow

Attractions from

Bolsjoj Theatre (Moscow)
The world-famous theatre was founded in 1776, but replaced with a newer, classicistic one in 1856, after a devastating fire. Bolsjoj Theatre has been the centre of the best Russian opera and ballet throughout the times, and this was where Tjajkovskij's "Swan Lake" premiered in 1877, running ever since.
Moscow Zoological Garden (Moscow)
The Russian animal park is one of Europe's best and largest zoological gardens. It was founded in 1864 and consists of two sections, connected by footbridge. The population of animals amounts to 5715 animals, distributed among 947 species. Moscow Zoo was one of the few Russian institutions that had an unproblematic cooperation with Western institutions during the cold war.
The district of Kremlin (Moscow)
This is the historical and enigmatic centre, in which Russian world politics were devised, and this beautiful city within the city is also Moscow's greatest attraction. Kremlin, with its onion domes and mighty churches, symbolizing the incredible wealth of the Tsars, is an inevitable sight during your stay in Moscow.
Vasilij Blazjennyj Cathedral (Moscow)
This famous church, at the end of the Red Square, is without comparison the most photographed attraction in all of Moscow. Ivan the Cruel erected the gorgeous, colourful and imaginative Vasilij Cathedral in 1555-61 in memory of his invasion of Kazan in 1552. Indoors, you can enjoy some of best-preserved icons and chapels in all of Russia.
