There’s more to Moscow than glitzy skyscrapers and the iconic monuments of the Red Square - Russia’s cosmopolitan capital is also one of the best places to learn about the Soviet history of space exploration. Spend five days getting to know the well-known highlights of Moscow while also unearthing the city’s fascinating association with world-leading cosmonautics.
This opulent city’s fondness for all things space technology-related is evident; the futuristic Museum of Cosmonautics and Monument to the Conquerors of Space, celebrating Soviet space exploration achievements, can’t be missed in the north of the city. Here you’ll find original space suits from each side of the Atlantic amongst spacecraft monuments, before visiting Star City and the Cosmonauts Training Centre to tour the astronaut village and learn about the Soyuz spaceships.
This tour stays in the Hilton Moscow Leningradskaya; one of Stalin’s Seven Sisters, this impressive building is one of the famous Stalinist skyscrapers that dot the cityscape.
But time spent in Moscow is not complete without visits to Red Square to spy the fortified Kremlin and the colourful cupola domes of St Basil’s Cathedral. Speak to a Regent Holidays Travel Specialist about booking tickets to an opera or ballet performance at the world-renowned Bolshoi Theatre for one evening of your trip.
