Reach the heart of Moscow in a weekend

The Historical Museum in Red Square. Before you leave the famous square, make sure you pop into the GUM shopping centre, the shopper’s mecca for Russians and visitors alike. The exclusive boutiques of today have taken the place of what was in 1928 Stalin’s headquarters, and, although you might not be able to buy anything, the architecture of the building itself, along with the relics of a time long past, make it worth a wander / Photo: Michael O'Donoghue
