Russia's political, economic, and cultural center, Moscow remains the most populous inland city in the world, famed for its colorful history and rich architectural heritage.
Moscow is known for museums, historic sites, sightseeing, nightlife, and nature. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: steep yourself in history at Red Square (Krasnaya ploshchad), pause for some serene contemplation at St. Basil's Cathedral, admire the masterpieces at The Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts, and admire the striking features of Kremlin Walls and Towers.

For photos, other places to visit, and more tourist information, use the Moscow sightseeing planner.

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airports are Sheremetyevo International Airport, Vnukovo International Airport and Domodedovo International Airport. In October, daily temperatures in Moscow can reach 9°C, while at night they dip to 2°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 3rd (Mon) to allow enough time to take a train to St. Petersburg.

Built on a desolate swamp as a showcase capital of Imperial Russia, this grand city has certainly lived up to the expectations of its founder, Tsar Peter the Great.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near St. Petersburg: Peterhof (Peterhof State Museum Preserve & The Bath Block), Catherine Palace and Park (in Pushkin) and The Naval Cathedral of Saint Nicholas in Kronstadt (in Kronshtadt). Spend the 4th (Tue) exploring the collection at State Hermitage Museum and Winter Palace. There's lots more to do: examine the collection at State Russian Museum, get engrossed in the history at Yusupov Palace on Moika, contemplate the long history of Palace Square (Dvortsovaya Ploshchad), and pause for some serene contemplation at St. Isaac's Cathedral State Museum-Memorial.

To see photos, maps, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the St. Petersburg tour planner.

Traveling by train from Moscow to St. Petersburg takes 5 hours. Alternatively, you can fly; or drive. In October, daily temperatures in St. Petersburg can reach 10°C, while at night they dip to 3°C.
