Top destination around Ostankino Tower - Moscow


The Moscow Kremlin and the Red Square remain the main symbols of the Russian capital. The Kremlin building was constructed in the 12th century and served as the main defensive structure. For several hundred years, it was repeatedly destroyed and rebuilt, while the Red Square witnessed a number of important historical events. Since the construction of the Kremlin, important public gatherings, fairs, and celebrations have been held here. Today the capital's main square is a favorite walking place among local residents and guests of Moscow.

The capital is famous for its modern architectural monuments, including the famous "Moscow City" Business Center. It is a complex of skyscrapers featuring the original futuristic design. The height of the main building reaches 235 meters. It's nice to admire the high-rise buildings on a sunny day when their mirror facades reflect the sun's rays.

One of the capital's most recognizable religious sights is the Cathedral of Christ the Savior. It was built at the beginning of the 19th century soon after the end of the Patriotic War of 1812. The construction of the temple lasted more than forty years. In the post-revolutionary period, the cathedral was completely destroyed, and it was decided to erect the Palace of Soviets on its site. The city authorities began the reconstruction of the religious monument in 1994, and in three years the cathedral was finally open to the public.
