Moscow – A city of museums
Moscow has a mind-boggling 400-plus museums. From art to science, from childhood to death, you name it; there is probably a museum for it. Many of the museums are child-friendly; the Experimentanium is full of interactive exhibits, while at the Museum of Soviet Gaming Machines there are plenty of arcade games for them to play. The Kremlin complex is a must-visit for most tourists. Once you have entered through the Kutafiya tower and passed the intimidating red wall, you will find that the buildings inside look much friendlier. The biggest draws are the white Assumption Cathedral with golden domes, where Tsars were crowned, and the similarly coloured Assumption Belfry and 81-metres-tall Ivan the Great Bell Tower. Shoppers will delight in the 200 upmarket boutiques in Red Square's GUM shopping centre, while bargain-hunters may wish to check out the Izmaylovo market.
