    Foreign tourists visit Red Square, 1965.

    The Russian capital is one of the 20 most visited cities in Europe and the tourist flow has almost doubled over the past eight years. Moscow has everything a tourist city needs, including developed infrastructure, high-quality hotel services, places of interest, and an extensive public transportation network.

    Moscow's unique history and its rich culture have been attracting tourists from all over the globe for decades.

    The city is famous for its historic buildings, museums, and monuments, with one of the most beautiful underground systems in the world as well as eye-catching parks.

    During the COVID-19 pandemic, a number of countries around the world took quarantine measures and closed their borders to foreigners, suspending regular air and rail links. Transport links between various countries have recently been gradually resuming with the improving coronavirus situation.

    On 24 July, Russia's Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova stated that the country would resume air traffic with Great Britain, Turkey, and Tanzania on 1 August.
