As Russia’s capital and largest city, Moscow is a leading travel destination, offering visitors extensive historical sites and top cultural attractions. The world-renowned Russian architecture is marked by “onion domes,” as seen on Saint Basil’s Cathedral, and by Stalinist-style structures like the Seven Sisters, a mix of Baroque and Gothic influences. Moscow boasts more parks per person than Paris, London and New York — the most famous, Gorky Park, has been portrayed countless times in literature and pop culture. The city also claims one of the premier international ballet companies, Bolshoi Ballet, and 3 of the most famous ballets of all time were created by Russian composer Pyotr Tchaikovsky. The cuisine of Russia is diverse, but it all centers around meats like fish, pork and poultry, plus berries, honey and indigenous grains.
