As the symbolic heart of Russia, Moscow, which celebrated its 867th anniversary in 2014, has enjoyed a renaissance as one of the world’s great cities. The capital’s streets now buzz 24 hours a day, and joint ventures between east and west have already opened plush new hotels, internationally stocked shops, and well over 1,000 eating establishments. Her sister-city, St. Petersburg, host of Russia’s Golden Age and cradle of revolution, and surely Russia’s soul, celebrated its 300th anniversary in 2003. One of the most graceful and well-proportioned cities in the world, filled with baroque and classical architecture, and known as the Venice of the North for its scenic canals, it is easy to see how St. Petersburg became the inspiration for musicians, artists, poets and writers such as Rimsky-Korsakov, Diaghilev, Pushkin and Dostoevsky.
This guidebook contains a wealth of cultural information on Moscow and St. Petersburg and the regions surrounding them, including the Golden Ring, a series of ancient Russian towns set in the stunning countryside around Moscow.
