With a history spanning 850 years, Moscow is the epicentre for 'New Russia'. At its heart is the Kremlin and Red Square, home to Lenin's Mausoleum and the iconic St Basil's cathedral. The city is evolving into a modern day metropolis with glass fronted skyscrapers sitting beside Stalinist architecture and orthodox cathedrals.
