Moscow is a city of contrasts where ancient monasteries and ultra-modern monoliths stand side by side, epitomising the changes sweeping through Russia. The city's origins as a symbol of Russian spiritual and political power go back 850 years, and the city remains such today. The Kremlin, is at the
heart of Moscow in every way - symbolically, historically and strategically. Next to it Red Square is home to the magical St Basil's Cathedral and Lenin's tomb. Moscow's famous metro survives in all its constructivist glory, with chandeliers, marble and opulent design meaning Forty-four of its stations have been designated as architectural landmarks.
