About the book

 To the reader
This guide is a short account of Moscow and its principal points of interest for the foreign tourist who is visiting the city for the first time and has a limited time at his or her disposal. To describe a city as vast as Moscow is difficult, especially within a small compass; but we hope that this guide will help you spend your time in our city pleasantly and profitably and make a first acquaintance with its sights and places o f interest, so that you will want to renew that acquaintance in the future. Several excursions have been suggested for a stay of three or four days, rather arbitrarily, we admit; but with our recommendations in mind you can plan your own sightseeing around the city.
