Kid-Friendly Moscow Attractions
From the Moscow Oceanarium to the Trampoline Centre, this city offers plenty of opportunities for kids and families to learn and play together.
Moscow’s main city square, Red Square, located beside the Kremlin, was first established in the 15th century. Lined with landmarks, this central gathering place has been used for everything from military parades to rock concerts and fashion shows.
St. Basil’s Cathedral
Known for its colourful onion-shaped domes inspired by the flames of a bonfire, this iconic cathedral on Red Square was built in the 16th century on orders from Ivan the Terrible. The building has operated as a museum since 1928.
GUM Department Store
Steps away on Red Square, visit the largest location of GUM – short for Gosudarstvennyi Universal’nyi Magazin, meaning State Department Store. Originally opened in 1893, the large-scale complex is a destination for high-end shopping.
The Bolshoi Theatre
Opened in 1824, the Bolshoi Theatre is a national symbol of Russia. Having premiered works by Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff, the theatre still presents a repertoire of opera, ballet and concerts.
Also known as Lenin’s Tomb, this world-renowned memorial is situated on Red Square and serves as the current resting place of Vladimir Lenin. His embalmed body has been on public display since shortly after his death in 1924.
