MOSCOW TRAVEL GUIDE - MOSCOW RUSSIA

Moscow Hotel and Travel Moscow Russia Travel Guide - Moscow is the capital of the Russian Federation. It is steeped in history, is full of pride, self-indulgence, and beauty. Since the downfall of communism, travel to Moscow has exploded in the last decade. Millions flock there to see all that it has to offer.

The City of Moscow is huge. Approximately 11 million people live there. It is not the type of city that can be seen in a weekend getaway. Since it's so large, giving it only a weekend of your time would not be doing it justice. The city is rich in history, architecture, culture, museums, the arts, and cuisine. It has a much more European flavor than other parts of Russia. Transportation is available in Moscow Russia in the form of metro (subway), buses, trolleys and taxis. The metro is quite expansive and relatively cheap to use.

Moscow RussiaFour Rings make up Moscow, with the Kremlin at its center. Roads spoke out across the rings, and the Moscow River meanders through it. The first ring, or Inner Ring, is a semicircle 500m north of the Kremlin. The second is the Boulevard Ring, three-quarters of a circle 1km from the Kremlin. It's mostly dual carriageway with a park strip down the middle. All sections of this area end in "bulvar". The third is the Garden Ring, a full circle 2km out from the Kremlin, and crosses the Moscow River twice. The fourth is the Outer Ring and is much further out. This is some 15km from the Kremlin east and west, and 19km north and south. This forms the city's limits.
