Moscow (Москва)

Russia's massive and fascinating capital, Moscow is a fast changing metropolis at the center of an increasingly oil-rich mega-state. Still riddled with gorgeous churches and historic facades after decades of Soviet demolition, the somewhat schizophrenic city is a joy to explore, offering up perhaps the most quintessentially Russian, urban experience available.
