So it's not surprising that the architecture of the capital of Russia has the unique mixture of various styles, which creates a really strong impression. There along with the buildings of Stalin's epoch take place the houses, built in the 19th century; in this city amazingly beautiful cathedrals are located near the high-tech skyscrapers. Even in the very center of the capital the Kremlin has to emulate with the Congress Palace.
Though Moscow can seem to be too large (it's more than 900 km2) and lots of reconstructions were carried out, it still managed to save the entire architectural scheme: the Kremlin takes the central position and other buildings are situated on radial lines around it. The city center is full of historical monuments, so not to miss any of them – instead of bus excursion just have a walk.
