Peter I: A Moscow riddle
Established in a protective bend of the Moscow River, Moscow has been inhabited for well over a thousand years. The first historical record of Moscow relates to the signing of a peace treaty by Prince Yury Dolgoruky (long arm) in 1147. Dolgoruky is aclaimed as Moscow's founder since he ordered the building of wooden walls around the settlement in 1156. This walled settlement was later to become the heart of today's Kremlin.
Moscow today is a city of over 10 million people and extends way beyond those original walls. Moscow has given birth to some of the highest levels of human achievement in arts and science. The city has seen invaders come and go and its many layers stand as a window on a thousand years of human history.
Individual Moscow tours are available standalone and as substitutions or additions to a Russia travel package. They also offer some ideas for the independent traveler. Our Moscow tours are available year round but if you come in winter then you better bundle up.
