Moscow





Moscow is a heart of Russia. It is not only a capital and the largest city in Europe – since hundreds years Moscow has been a cultural, business and scientific center of Russia. The Kremlin, the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, the Red Square, the "Seven Sisters", the Ostankino Tower and other historical places situated in Moscow are known from all parts of the world. Museums and galleries, theatres and concerts are available for people coming to Moscow. There is a vibrant night life in Moscow – young people can choose jazz, house, latino night clubs, bars and restaurants located in the downtown of Moscow.

Moscow is a very green city – there are 96 parks and 18 gardens in Moscow, including 4 botanical gardens. Moscow lies in the continental climate zone, therefore the summer is comfortably warm with typical temperature around 22 C (72 F).
