Moscow, Russia’s capital city, is an eye-opening experience as well. Visit the Red Square at the heart of Moscow, which has been restored to its pre-Soviet appearance. Next, go to the St Basil’s Cathedral to look upon its red bricks and colourful onion-shaped domes, a perfect picture opportunity. At night, dwell on opera and ballet in the Bolshoy Theatre, which showcases world-class performances.
