1) Moscow, Russia
This former-Soviet city has a lot going for it in terms of culture and attractions. However, Moscow residents are not known for being particularly friendly to those out of towners trying to navigate their city. If you’re lost and looking for someone to help you out for directions, you may not get too far. The best bet is to hire a private guide if you’re looking for an easy and stress-free way to tour Moscow. Standoffish attitude aside, Moscow is an amazingly rich cultural and historical place to visit. The 15th century cathedrals display fantastically strange architecture (St. Basil’s), the art scene is one of the best in the world, and the nightlife is as posh as it gets. Don’t miss Red Square, the heart and soul of the city, and The Kremlin, the Russian President’s residence, and power symbol for over 500 years.
