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)
