Moscow City Breaks
An imposing city full of echoes of its past
Be prepared to find yourself moved on a Moscow city break from The Co-operative Travel - be it by its history, amazing art and architecture, or eye-opening shopping and dining.
The unpredictability of the Muscovite weather only lends the city more charm, and ensures that the great, iconic sights such as the Kremlin and Red Square exude an ever-changing character which adds to its appeal.
A Moscow weekend break or short break will change in character along with the seasons. In winter the snow gives everything an ethereal appeal - but it's really only for those hardened to the cold! Hence, Moscow city breaks are most popular in the summer, so if you wish to avoid the crowds, consider a spring or autumn Moscow short break for the ideal balance of conditions and crowds.
Red Square will undoubtedly be the focus of your Moscow city break, and no one should miss seeing Lenin's mausoleum, or the awe-inspiring sight of the domes of St Basil's Cathedral.
Of course, art, museums, and a vast array of culture, from the world-famous Bolshoi Theatre and its ballet and opera performances to state-of-the-art modern clubs, all act as a magnet for thousands of weekenders, so your Moscow short break won't be short on opportunities for entertainment of all varieties.
