    Probably it’s the most iconic landmark in Moscow and in whole Russia. It’s easily recognizable thanks to its brilliant colours as well as the iconic onion-shaped domes.

    The main peculiarity of this museum is that it hosts only paintings by Russian painters, which tell the most important episodes of Russian history. It’s a very interesting and instructive place for somebody who wants to learn about Russian history by looking at paintings.

    I'm a Muscovite too and I use our subway. It is growing day by day. Appears new directions and new stations. Few month ago I have got " Davidkovo" within 5 min walking from my home. "Davidkovo" belongs to "Big Circle Line", which is building right now. I like it !

    Entering the Kremlin is like entering another world, a “city in the city”, with its amazing churches and curiosities such as the “Tsar Bell” which never rang as it had broken before its installation.

    We were excited to visit Red Square but couldn’t believe how beautiful and clean it is in person. Definitely something you need to see for yourself! Must see at day and night.

    The park is huge and has several buildings that can be visited. I recommend the Great Castle because it can see the architecture and life of Russia during Catherine the Second. The other two castles are ok, if you are interested in art be sure to visit them. There is a breathtaking golden hall in the Great Castle. Certainly the whole park is beautiful, in one part there is a lake around which one can remember and rest. There is a miniature museum in one section, but we have not visited it.

    This is a must-do for a Russia visit. Book well in advance. We caught the inaugural show of that particular play. The atmosphere is electric with a boisterous audience showering the cast with bouquets at the end of the show. The production quality exceeds anything I’ve ever seen. The performance - left me speechless. It truly is an experience of a lifetime.

    Very impressive and educational museum! A must do when in Moscow! You get to see the history of space exploration, lots of unique artifacts, relics, Sputnik satellites and much more also Belka and Svelka (the 1st two Russian space dogs to survive). It is definitely a wonderful experience and very reasonable price!

    If you visit Moscow, YOU MUST TOUR THE ARMOURY!
    Our guide met us in our hotel lobby. We walked to the Kremlin and over to the Armoury building. We had toured the Kremlin on the previous day so we bypassed any overview our guide may have wanted to offer. One thing I have learned with touring in Russia is that the large tour groups get out early, and if you can get ahead of them, you have a much greater chance of missing long lines or seeing sights without crowds of people in your way. The treasures in this museum were beautiful - from coronation gowns to carriages, clergy sacrament clothing, gifts to the church, gifts from worldwide ambassadors and the infamous Faberge Eggs. Our guide offered historical backdrop to the items, further rounding out our newfound knowledge of Imperial Russia history. We also toured the Diamond Fund in the same trip, which houses a wealth of the jewels and jewelry worn by royalty. This tour was my favorite of all Moscow tours.

    This park is not in the prime tourist area, but for every history (specially WWII) buff it's worth the extra effort reaching it in the western part of the capital. To make your journey more fulfilled and convince you seeing it, beside the park itself there's an amazing WWII Victory museum and near by (5-10 min walk) is the Triumphal Gate and the Borodino battle panorama museum (read my separate reviews on them).
    The park is huge, adorned with many fountains, huge Soviet style monuments, lake with renting boats, walking paths and benches, as well many kiosks with fast food and drink options.
    Bonus TIP: The metro station by the park is called "Park Pobedy". It is one of the most beautiful ones and the second deepest in the world, 84 m below ground).

    An interesting idea to collect slot machines from our childhood in one place.
    At one time, we spent a lot of time throwing 15 kopeck coins in order to shoot at Sea Battle or Sniper.
    You can visit this museum as a way of nostalgia, and in order to acquaint children with the games that we played more than 30 years ago. But not the fact that they will impress them more than modern games.
    Many machines don't work.

    I travelled the world but never saw a park that comes even close to this one. Very beautiful with tons of activities and great restaurants, it became a must for me to visit almost on daily basis when I am in Moscow. Amazingly, one can have an equally great time being there alone or with family, or with friends. Highly recommended.

    This cathedral was rebuilt back in 1990; it’s bigger and more “sober” than St Basil, a good example of Orthodox-Byzantine architecture. The golden dome is eye-striking.

    These buildings are ones of the highest in Europe. They look very futuristic and this is the only part of Moscow with this kind of Dubai-style architecture. Very impressive view.
