Moscow Travel guide
Moscow : Michelin's recommendations
Moscow is like a history book of Holy Russia and the former USSR. While the buildings may stick out in the new quarter of Moskva City, the historic district around the inescapable Kremlin boasts a unique legacy from the city of the Tsars and Soviets. For 21C visitors this tentacular city – at 10 million inhabitants the most densely populated in Europe – is both exhausting and exciting. To escape the noisy traffic, take the metro and explore its dazzling stations or enjoy a bit of peace and quiet in its prestigious art museums.
