Fly with SWISS to the capital of Russia, Moscow and experience firsthand the hospitality and friendliness of the locals. The massive architectural and arts heritage of the city give it a special sort of vibe. But maybe the most characteristic feature of Moscow’s skyline is its Churches.
After years of neglect, many are now restored, with shining gold domes. The most remarkable is St Basil’s Cathedral with its bright colors and soaring towers. Moscow is all about grandeur – even its subway system. Visit Prospekt Mira station and check out its hanging chandeliers. There is another Moscow to discover. Gorki Park is a vast green oasis. It is divided into 2 parts: an area full of attractions, including funfair rides, boating lakes, bungee jumping and ice skating; and an area of formal gardens and woodland. In the summer there are concerts in the amphitheater.
