Moscow Architecture – Introduction

Moscow is the capital of Russia, one of the (four) BRIC countries that have recently blossomed economically. The city’s architecture is also flourishing and well worth a visit with some major projects recently completed and more under construction.

e-architect can assist with advice for Walking Tours of Moscow ahead of trips, eg about types and areas of buildings. We like to accommodate your architectural interests on our Moscow Architecture Tours.
