Within the Kremlin there is a Cathedral Square, the so-called "City of God". The famous Tsar Bell and Tsar Cannon are there, too. Six buildings, including 3 three enormous cathedrals edge the square. Most of them, the work of Italian architects during the late 15th and early 16th Century.The Armory building built in 1851 as a factory for making weapons nowadays houses a museum, in which an enormous collection of Russian national treasures, including the famous Fabergé eggs, carriages, cookware, jewelry, etc. is on display. The State Historical Museum is located outside the walls. Entry fee includes the visit to the Kremlin Territory and 3 cathedrals. Additional fee is for the Armory visit.

Going on the metro in Moscow is an attraction in itself. The metro here is just beautiful with its architecture and majestic spaces. If you have to choose, two of the most beautiful stations to visit are "Komsomol'skaya" and "Kazan'skaya".

Moscow Metro

The popular Arbat Street is one of the oldest streets in Moscow. If you have not been to Arbat Street before, it is definitely worth a visit - it's closed off to traffic, allowing pedestrians to enjoy its many cafes and souvenir shops, as well as entertaining street artists and portrait painters.

One of the best lookouts in Moscow is called Sparrow Hills. From here you will get magnificent views of the city, hence this is also a popular place for spending New Year’s Eve and enjoying the fireworks. In the park you can wander among ponds and occasionally come here for a concert or event.
