Russia's political, economic, and cultural center, Moscow remains the most populous inland city in the world, famed for its colorful history and rich architectural heritage.
Explore Moscow's surroundings by going to Kolomna Kremlin (in Kolomna) and The Holy Trinity-St. Sergius Lavra (in Sergiyev Posad). There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Red Square (Krasnaya Ploshchad), learn about all things military at Armoury Chamber, examine the collection at Moscow Kremlin (Moskovsky Kreml), and take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Basil's Cathedral.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Sheremetyevo International Airport, Domodedovo International Airport, Vnukovo International Airport and Zhukovsky International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 30°F in December, and nighttime lows around 23°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Mon) so you can travel back home.
