In Living Color!

Even the buildings of this colorful city spread along the two banks of the Moskva River are enough to impress the kids.

OBRAZTOV PUPPET THEATER
Despite being in Russian, the entertaining children’s shows staged during the daytime at this theater are based on themes familiar to everyone. You can also have a look at the theater’s puppet collection after the show.

ST. BASIL’S CATHEDRAL
A Russian icon, this gaily colored cathedral and its onion domes will remind children of places they’ve read about in fairy tales. And the interior and galleries are as mind boggling as the colorful exterior.

KOLOMENSKOYE
See the amazing 19th century wooden houses and stroll through forests of 600-year-old oaks at Kolomenskoye, Moscow’s oldest area of settlement.

BOAT TOURS
When your child gets tired of walking, show him another side of the city in a boat tour on the river. The boat’s leisurely pace affords a full view of Moscow from a different vantage point.
