Russia: Moscow

Welcome to Moscow–one of the most beautiful cites in all the world…

… where everything, it seems–the architecture, monuments, metro system, and even the cemeteries–is an exquisite work of art… and quintessentially Russian.

Score some Rubles and wander around as you slowly decode the Cyrillic alphabet… and prepare yourself for a host of surprises that will challenge all your preconceptions about what makes Russia and (at least some of) her people tick. Let’s go!
