The Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts is located on Volkhonka Street across from the Cathedral of Christ the Savior. It houses the largest collection of European art in Moscow, and it was named in honor of one of Russia's premier poets, Alexander Pushkin.

You don't go here to read sonnets, though. Instead, you should look to find art spanning a wide range of eras and movements, from ancient Greece to the Renaissance to French Impressionism. Masterpieces from the likes of Renoir, Cézanne, Picasso and Van Gogh easily make this museum deserving of a visit.

Admission is approximately $10 USD (300 rubles) for adults and $3 USD (100 rubles) for students. The museum is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m (last admission is at 6 p.m.); you'll find it's accessible from the Kropotkinskaya and Borovitskaya metro stations. For more information, check out the Pushkin Museum website.

#1 Red Square

One of the world's most famous public squares, the Red Square sits at the physical center of Moscow and is considered the symbolic center of all of Russia. Bluntly speaking, Red Square is a must-see in the city. Allot a decent amount of time to take in the views, capture them on your camera and to just soak in the atmosphere of the place.

You'll find the Red Square is bordered by the massive GUM shopping mall on the east, St. Basil's Cathedral on the south, the State Historical Museum on the north and Lenin's Mausoleum on the west.
