The foundation of the city of Moscow dates from 1147, although it only became Russias capital in the 15th century - and from the 17th to the 19th century the capital transferred to St Petersburg, until Lenin once again transferred the government to Moscow after the 1917 October Revolution. This huge city surprises visitors with its history as much as its size and it welcomes everyone and above all opens their eyes to another world.
Begin your route at the Theater square (Treatralnaya), which contains the Youth Theater, the famous Theater of Opera and the Moscow Ballet, the Bolshoi, and the Maly Dramatic Theater . A few steps away is the vast Red Square where you can see Lenins Mausoleum, the Museum of History, the Grand State Warehouses (GUM), the Cathedral of Saint Basilio and the Monument to Two Heroes of the Proletariat Fight. And by all means, the Kremlin, that architectonic seat of old strength from which the main governmental institutions still reign. Within the enclosure, six centuries are represented in the architecture of the museums: the Cathedral of Asuncion (the most important temple of Russia); the Church of the Mantle of the Virgin; the Cathedral of the Announcement (the private temple of the czars); and the Cathedral of Michael the Archangel - a veritable pantheon of the great princes and czars of Russia. It is also possible to visit the Palace of the Patriarch and the Church of the Twelve Apostles, the Museum of Applied Arts, the Great Palace, and the Armory.
After exiting the Kremlin, take a walk along the embankments of the Moscova River until you see a beautiful building in Russian Classical style - the State Library. Nearby you can admire the main Orthodox temple of Moscow, the majestic Cathedral of Christ the Savior. Circling the Kremlin, you arrive at the main street of Moscow, Tverskaya; cross it and you encounter the House of Parliament, the National Hotel, the Yermólova Theater, the Telegraph Building, the Mossoviet building, and the Seat of Pushkin.
Finally, visit the underground palace by taking the Moscow metro and admiring the decoration and architecture of its stations. Each one commemorates historical events of the country using marble, semi-precious stones, bronze, etc., while many are adorned with stained glass windows, mosaics or sculptures. Dont miss the stations of Arbatskaya, Mayakóvskaya, Kíyevskaya, Belorrúskaya and Novoslabódskaya.
