Medieval attractions in Moscow
In Medieval Moscow almost everything was built of wood. Only churches, monasteries, castles and homes of rich nobles were made of stone. Thus, after several fires in the Middle Ages very few buildings remained in Moscow of the Middle Ages. But even today there are few places in Moscow where you can visit Moscow medieval sights. The main Moscow attraction is, of course, the Kremlin.It is one of the largest castles in the world which is in good condition. The Kremlin has been decorated by an Italian architect in the 15 century, so do not forget architecture Kremlin walls and towers of the fortress are Italian.
Right opposite the Kremlin there is the Red Square. Red Square is a collection of sites of different ages, but the most famous sight is St. Basil's Cathedral of the mid 15 th century. St. Basil's Cathedral is not only one the most famous Moscow attractions, but of all Russia. It is a masterpiece of architecture with a very interesting history and very beautiful and unique buildings.
Close to the Red Square there is one of the oldest streets of Moscow - Varvarka.Here you can see the medieval court of the Romanovs family as the first British embassy in Russia and several churches.
But the best places of medieval architecture, which still preserved, are Moscow monasteries. A monastery played the role of the fortress. The most famous monastery in Moscow is Novodevichy Convent. But besides it, there are many similar objects.
Other medieval Moscow attraction is Kolomenskoye estate - the former residence of the first Romanov tsar. Today there is a big park with old buildings and trees which are three hundred years old.

Stalin-era sights in Moscow
Even before Stalin got a power, Moscow became the capital again and it changed rapidly. Many buildings, especially churches, were demolished. But Stalin era began in Moscow a new architectural era.
Like Hitler in Germany, Stalin in Soviet Union banned constructivism architecture and started a new style to his taste. So we call this rebirth of classical architecture simply like Stalin`s style.
Stalin`s style is a very special thing. This architecture was not in the resistance with the classical structures, it was mostly just a different kind of classicism with the same Greco-Roman roots. So that is an architecture like People`s. Moscow Metro, the 7 sisters - Stalin's skyscrapers, these are sights that are world famous. Today you can see many buildings of Stalin's time from the inside, such as MGU - Moscow State University; Moscow Metro tour is one of the most popular tours in Moscow. But this is only a small part of the Stalin`s architecture in Moscow.
Modern attractions in Moscow
Stalin`s architecture was unfortunately the last style that has pleased people. Many buildings of the 60s - 70s have already been demolished because they were too ugly.
A new era has begun with the Mayor Luzhkov, who has been ruled for 18 years in Moscow.The architecture in Moscow was often guided by his taste. The opinion of this architecture is controversial and often negative, although one can say that the Moscovites have become very choosy.
Among the new attractions that are funny there are the new Christ the Savior Cathedral, Tsaritsyno estate, Kolomenskoe Tsar's Palace, Izmailovo Kremlin.
