Welcome to Moscow
Moscow is the city of contrasts, here you can find both the simple Bohemian and the glittering glamorous - a church dating from the 16th century covered in gold, next to a glass building from the 1990s. Salty caviar is washed down with sweet shampanskoye. And what represents this spirit better than Moscow’s underground railway? For a few roubles you can travel between stations decorated with chandeliers and marble.
