Cheap flights to Moscow

Moscow tells its intriguing story through striking architecture and a rich cultural scene. From the mighty Kremlin complex, towering over the Moskva River, to the vibrant shows of the Bolshoi Ballet, there’s never a dull moment in its tale.

At the city’s centre, the Red Square has seen battles, military parades and the collapse of the Soviet Union on Victory Day. Walk the cobbles of the traffic-free square today and capture on camera the scenic Kremlin Towers and St Basil’s Cathedral. You’ll witness modern developments grow alongside the old city including the Federation Tower, set to be the tallest building in Europe.

If you’re a culture vulture you’ll be amazed by brilliant ballet and opera performances at the Bolshoi Theatre and awesome acrobatics of the Moscow State Circus. Plus, Moscow’s lively nightlife can keep even the most energetic party people entertained. Back in daylight, enter a world of excess and wander the lavish halls of Moscow’s two main shopping centres GUM and TSUM. Or, escape the bustle of the city and peek into 1930s Russia with a trip to Patriarshy Prudiy (Patriarch's Pond).

Key Areas

Tolstoy's former home, where he spent his winters between 1882 and 1901, is today an evocative house museum. The interior remains as it was when the novelist lived here, with the dining room neatly laid with crockery. The novelist's wife, Sofia Andreevna, used to painstakingly copy out her husband's manuscripts by hand at the desk that can be seen in the bedroom, while it was in the study that Tolstoy penned his final novel, Resurrection (21 Ulitsa Lva Tolstogo).

April 2014
