    Moscow Region

The Moscow Region can offer a lot to see as it is closely connected with Russian capital in historical and economic senses. Monasteries and churches, as well as estates of aristocracy, have preserved the brightest artistic and cultural achievements of Russia. Old towns of the Moscow Region have always been in the center of tourism and warm hospitality has become a good tradition here.

Maybe the most delightful moment in traveling around the Moscow Region is that it has a lot of hotels and wonderful recreational areas equipped with everything needed for having a great time. These suburban hotels are gradually becoming more and more popular among the Muscovites as holiday destinations, where they can play sports, enjoy leisure activities and spa treatments, whose array depends only on the level and price of the chosen hotel.

However, if you are interested in culture as well as in a good rest, you can easily combine one with another, as most of the local recreation centers are situated close to museum-estates, or monasteries, or some other famous buildings and sites. Their special atmosphere has preserved Russian cultural heritage for several centuries. Among the ones definitely worth paying a visit are the estates of Kuskovo, Arkhangelskoye, and Abramtsevo.

Kuskovo and Arkhangelskoye were the centers of aristocratic life and western lifestyle, while places like Abramtsevo have a different atmosphere and show the Russian life of the period at a different angle.
