Can’t decide on a hotel to book? Here is our recommendation!

Although Moscow is a magical city, your whole Russian experience can be significantly enhanced by seeing other areas of this vast country.

If you are looking to add some world-class photos to your Instagram account whilst in Moscow, you really will be spoilt for choice. The city is awash with places that you have seen on TV all your life but getting up close and personal with them is something altogether different. If you were drawn to Moscow because of a documentary or similar you watched about Russian history, you will know exactly where to go to get the best pictures for your Instagram account. In case you don’t, please see a brief list of the main sights of Moscow below.

Must See Moscow Sights For Instagrammers

Below are just a few places that should be near the top of the list for Instagrammers visiting Moscow, listed in no particular order.

  • Red Square – Can be a fairly difficult place to capture due to its vast size but can be done. If you visit only one place in Moscow, make it the world-famous Red Square.
  • The Kremlin – Another iconic Moscow landmark that is unmissable. For the best possible Instagram post, walk across the bridge to the other side of the river and capture it at night to see the dazzling array of lights.
  • Cathedral of Christ the Saviour – A massive cathedral with a striking golden roof – sure to impress your Instagram followers.
  • Moscow Underground – If you think you’ve seen a subway station before and they’re all the same, think again. Moscow’s underground is like a vast art gallery. Some say it’s like walking into a palace full of people. Some stations are more spectacular than others so choose carefully.
  • Moscow Business District – Full of cool skyscrapers that are in complete contrast to the historical areas of the city – will look good on your feed and show your followers that there are two sides to Moscow.
  • Arbat Walking Street – Moscow’s equivalent of Convent Garden is the place to go to see street performers. A perfect setting for some eye-catching street shots.



Don’t forget to geo-tag your posts and include a descriptive line or two about your destination. Regardless if you’re going to Moscow as a single destination or as part of a wider Trans Siberian holiday, you need to let your followers know all about it!
