What are Moscow’s most famous landmarks and monuments?
The Kremlin is one of Moscow’s most famous buildings and it has served as an icon to Moscow, the Soviet Union, and Russia over the years. Settlements and fortresses have stood on this spot since the 2nd century BC, but the Kremlin seen today was designed in the late 15th century under the direction of Prince Ivan III. The fortress includes 20 towers and is surrounded by a wall that stretches for 2,500 metres (8,200 feet). There’s so much to see and do inside the Kremlin that you could easily spend an entire day there while holidaying on flights to Moscow. Highlights include Grand Kremlin Palace, the Armoury Chamber, Ivan the Great Bell Tower, and Assumption Cathedral.
St. Basil’s Cathedral
St. Basil’s Cathedral is only a stone’s throw away from the Kremlin, located on the other end of Moscow’s Red Square. The cathedral was built in the mid-16th century and features bright colours and onion-shaped domes that are meant to represent a bonfire. Visitors holidaying on cheap flights to Moscow can head into the cathedral to see the interior, which is just as intricate and colourful as the exterior. Explore the nine chapels of St. Basil’s Cathedral and see a large collection of Russian art.
The world-famous Bolshoi Theatre is home to the largest ballet company in the world, as well as a notable opera company. Many famous ballerinas, opera singers, and composers have spent some time at the Bolshoi Theatre, and it’s where Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake premiered in 1877. Catch a show at the Bolshoi for an unforgettable evening while you’re visiting Russia on return flights to Moscow. The shows change regularly, but you’ll always have some exciting ballets and operas to choose from.

When is the best time to visit Moscow?
Summer is the best time to travel on return flights to Moscow, as this is when the weather is at its best. Temperatures of about 23°C during the day make this the ideal time to book airfare to Moscow if you’re hoping to spend a lot of time outside. Keep in mind that this is the high season, so you’ll likely come across many other tourists and slightly higher hotel rates if you book summer flights to Moscow.
Enjoy nice weather while avoiding the heavy crowds of summer by booking cheap flights to Moscow in early autumn or late spring. Anticipate daytime temperatures of about 15° to 20°C, but pack a warm coat as it often cools to around 5°C at night.
Winter is brutally cold in Moscow, with temperatures hitting about -4°C during the day and -10°C at night. The cold weather is accompanied by heavy snowfall and short daylight hours. However, there are some advantages to booking tickets to Moscow for a winter holiday. It’s low season, meaning hotels are at their cheapest (outside of New Year’s when the city gets busy). There’s also something magical and unique about seeing Moscow covered in a blanket of snow.
