A Capital That Combines History & 21st Century Glitz
Around imposing Red Square, you’ll find Vladmir Lenin’s mausoleum, the rainbow-hued St. Basil’s Cathedral, and the massive GUM shopping center, which gleams like a paean to capitalism. Tour the Kremlin’s impressive fortress, flanked on the north by Alexander Gardens, and take a café break in Gorky Park. Soak up the bustling vibe among the bars, cafes and shops of the Arbat, and prepare to be awed by a performance at the Bolshoi Ballet.
