Moscow, Russia’s capital city, has a history stretching back over 900 years. Remnants of the city’s Soviet past can still be found (and remain some of its top attractions); however, Moscow has evolved into a modern urban center complete with trendy nightclubs and first-class dining. Still, guests staying at Marriott hotels in Moscow will want to hit the city’s high points, including the Red Square, once the hub of Communist activity, and the ballet at the renowned Bolshoi Theater.
Our Moscow hotels place travelers within easy reach of several top sights, including the impressive Kremlin, a 12th century fortress spanning 69 acres. The Kremlin complex features several points of interest, including the Cathedral of the Assumption and the Armory Museum. Also not to missed are the famous multi-colored domes of St. Basil’s Cathedral and the haunting Lenin Mausoleum, the final resting place of the notorious Russian revolutionary.
The ideal way to end an evening, the Old Moscow Circus entertains spectators with a variety of acts, including the acrobats, elephants and clowns that have made the circus a Moscow institution. Before departing Moscow, hotel guests should stroll along Old Arbat Street, where the population of street vendors promises to have the perfect souvenir.
