Moscow
Moscow is the capital, city and most populous federal subdivision of the Russian Federation. The city is an important political, economic, cultural, scientific, religious, financial, educational and transport center of Russia and the continent.
Moscow is situated on the river Moskva, in the Central European Federal District of Russia. In the course of its history, the city served as the capital of several states, such as medieval Muscovy, the subsequent Czarado of Russia and the Soviet Union. During the Cold War, Moscow was the center of the so-called Eastern Bloc. The capital is also the seat of the Kremlin, an ancient fortress that is now the residence of the Russian president and seat of the executive branch of the Russian government. The Kremlin is also one of several World Heritage Sites in the city. Both chambers of the Russian Parliament, the Duma and the Soviet Federation, are also based in Moscow.

The city is served by an extensive transit network, which includes four international airports, nine railway terminals and one of the world's deepest underground tunnels and recognized as one of the landmarks of the city due to the rich and varied architecture of its 185 stations.
Tourism
The main attractions of the city are:

Pushkin Complex
Its collection is divided into 6 buildings that are part of this museum complex. It is the largest museum in Moscow dedicated to European art. For those who have visited, they say it looks a lot like the British Museum in London.

Gorky Park
Created in 1928 from the junction of the gardens of the Golitsyn Hospital and the Neskuchny Palace with a total area of ​​300 acres. It lies on the banks of the Moskva River.
In addition to parks, fairs and hiking areas, there is a huge Ferris wheel.

A complex of 7 buildings that can be seen practically from anywhere in the city. They were built at Stalin's request for the commemoration of the Communist regime's 80 years.
Currently, each one of them has a different occupation like hotel, university, residence among others.

Arbat Street
One of the oldest and most famous streets in Moscow. Here you can buy many souvenirs from the city.
Originally occupied by oriental merchants, it now houses a large arts community and well-stocked cafes along the street.

Monastery of Danilov

Modern church in Russia and functions as a place of pilgrimage on holy days.

Christ Savior
Refurbished in 1994 according to its original design, today offers a great view of the city of Moscow at 40m high. A very beautiful cathedral with its golden towers and majestic interior.
Gastronomy
Vodka is a standard appetizer in restaurants that offer varied dishes due to the mix of ethnic groups found in the vast Russian territory.
We also find a great diversity of teas, inherited from the occupation of the Mongols, which are usually accompanied by pastries or "blinis" (small pancakes made with fresh yeast usually used to serve caviar, after being smeared with fresh cream).
Another important dish is Borche (or borscht or borshtch) which is a soup made from beets and fresh cream. Can be served hot or cold.
Caviar or ikroy are also typical of the region because of their abundant existence in the Caspian Sea. And consequently the river fish.
Stuffed potatoes (Kartoshka) are also heavily consumed. It is a cheaper option and is often sold in stalls around the sights.
Climate
The cold that comes to mind when we think of Moscow is not a mere stereotype. He really exists. The temperatures in the city vary from -3ºC to -10ºC in the winter (occurrences have already registered -30ºC) and in the summer from 18ºC to 22ºC.
