Big City Tales

Moscow & St. Petersburg | December 23, 2011

At this point I am not sure if it will be a river cruise or a Trans-Siberian railway adventure, but whatever the mode of transportation I choose to take between Moscow and St. Petersburg, I am so looking forward to roaming these rustic and rambling Russian cities and soaking up every last bit of their collective histories!

Sights to see in Moscow:

  • Red Square
  • The Kremlin
  • Cathedral of Christ the Saviour
  • Pushkin Museum of Visual Art
  • Tverskya Ulitsa (theatre district)
  • Kuznetsky Most (former meeting place of Moscow’s elite)
  • Izmailovsky Park (where Peter the Great played as a child)

Sights to see in St. Petersburg:

  • The Hermitage
  • Neva River
  • The Winter Palace & other palatial places
  • The Bronze Horseman, The Alexander Column & other grand statues
  • St. Isaac’s Cathedral & other houses of worship
  • The Palace Bridge, The Bank Bridge & other river-spanning feats of engineering
  • Alexander Garden, Catherine Garden & other parks heralding the great tsars of the past
