DISCOVER WORLD-FAMOUS MOSCOW ATTRACTIONS
During your stay at the Radisson Blu, explore the cultural treasures of Russia’s capital. Convenient train access allows you to visit famous sights like the Kremlin and Red Square.
Often standing as a symbol for the Russian government itself, the Moscow Kremlin served as residence for government leaders through both the czardom and Soviet Union. Now, this grand complex houses 4 cathedrals, 4 palaces, an armory and the Museum of Applied Art and Russian Everyday Life of the 17th Century.
The heart of Moscow, and arguably of all Russia, the Red Square stands before the Kremlin’s western wall. Throughout the year, this iconic square hosts national celebrations and prominent concerts.
St. Basil's Cathedral
St. Basil's Cathedral stands out from the Red Square's other sights due to its unique architecture and colorful spires and towers. Intricate murals grace the interior walls of this 16th-century church, which is now a national museum.
One of Moscow’s oldest streets, the Arbat dates back to the 15th century. Since then, this single-kilometer pedestrian street and its neighborhood have played a respected role in Moscow’s culture, often as the home of famous artists and Russian nobility. Today the Arabat is a popular tourist destination with street performers and souvenir stalls. Visitors can find Russia’s famous Matryoshka (nesting) dolls as well as other beautiful mementos like samovars, embroidered scarves and Gzhel ceramic or Khokhloma wooden tableware.
The Tretyakov Gallery, one of the world’s largest museums, houses the premier collection of Russian fine art from throughout the centuries. Art lovers can also visit Fallen Monument Park nearby to view a display of over 700 displaced Soviet era sculptures.
