Russia’s vast landmass encompasses icy Siberian wastelands, glacier-capped mountains, sprawling forests, deep lakes and beach resorts. The imperial splendor of its cities is only part of the urban story. Today, they are places rich with galleries, museums and nightlife.
In the west of the country sits Moscow, a prosperous modern city with breathtaking architecture. Stroll around Red Square and tour the Kremlin, a fortified complex containing churches, palaces and Russia’s parliament. Venture inside St. Basil’s Cathedral, famous for its onion-shaped multicolored domes. See the embalmed body of Vladimir Lenin, the first head of the Soviet Union, inside the Lenin Mausoleum. Book a ticket to see a ballet or opera performance at the Bolshoi Theater. Tour some of the 119 hectares (294 acres) of the centrally located Gorky Park, where you can enjoy a picnic or join in a game of volleyball in summer and hit the ice skating rink in winter.
See some of the countryside from Moscow north to St. Petersburg on a train journey; the high-speed Sapsan train covers the 435 miles (700 kilometers) in just under 4 hours. St. Petersburg is the cultural capital of the country. Appreciate hundreds of years of western art at the Hermitage, a museum that holds more than 3 million artifacts. Go on a sightseeing tour of the city by cruising along its canals.

Convenient, practical and clean stay in the centre of Moscow. The restaurants though a bit too expensive in comparison to what you can find outside of the hotel. At $77 a night would definitely stay here again :-)
