Moscow is a global metropolis, capital of Russia, forming the cultural image of the country and contributing to the development of the world cultural space. We cherish traditions and we are open to everything new and interesting.
Significant changes have happened in Moscow culture in recent years, they have received citizens’ keen response.
Largest urban leisure&culture parks have been revived, for the last year they have been visited by 27 million of residents and guests. Musicians, artists and representatives of other art professions actively explore pedestrian areas, the number of which is growing every year. New popular projects fill museum and library life. Metropolitan theaters delight audience with sell-out first nights, keep high art and ethical principles.
Culture, becoming more accessible and enriched with significant events, brings beauty, kindness and amiability to the city atmosphere.
We are ready to share our experience and learn the best from our colleagues and friends from other cities and countries.
