Exploring UNESCO World Heritage
 collection of Russia

The best advice I ever got and now willing to share with you is to plan your trip to anywhere in the world according to World Heritage collection Of UNESCO or in accordance to the experiences you would like to receive or as per your interests and passions(animal watching, wild nature, trekking, rafting, climbing, music, history, culture etc.) in a best spots for that purpose. After several really long trips you will understand what is your real passion if you still didn't realised that.


UNESCO sites are worth seeing because they have strict rules to to be included on the Unesco' World Heritage List, sites must be of outstanding universal value and meet at least one out of ten selection criteria. Now I would like to give you some idea on Unesco' World Heritage collection of Russia. What is Worth seeing in Russia?



Unesco' World Heritage
collection in Moscow City:

Kremlin and Red Square, Moscow
Le Kremlin et la place Rouge, Moscou, 莫斯科克里姆林宫和红场, El kremlin y la Plaza Roja de Moscú, الكرملين والساحة الحمراء، موسكو
Seamless connected to all the most important historical and political milestones in Russian History since the 13th century, the Kremlin (built between the 14th and 17th centuries by outstanding Russian and foreign architects) was the residence of Tsars and also a religious, cultural, trade centre. The Moscow Kremlin (Russian: tr. Moskovskiy Kreml; IPA: [mɐˈskofskʲɪj krʲɛmlʲ]), sometimes referred to as simply the Kremlin, is a historic fortified complex at the heart of Moscow, overlooking the Moskva River (to the south), Saint Basil's Cathedral and Red Square (to the east) and the Alexander Garden (to the west). It is the best known of kremlins (Russian citadels) and includes four palaces, four cathedrals and the enclosing Kremlin Wall with Kremlin towers. The complex serves as the official residence of the President of the Russian Federation. The Red Square (Russian: tr. Krásnaja Plóščaď; IPA: [ˈkrasnəjə ˈploɕːətʲ]) is a city square in Moscow, Russia. The square separates the Kremlin, the former royal citadel and currently the official residence of the President of Russia, from a historic merchant quarter known as Kitai-gorod. As major streets of Moscow radiate from here in all directions, being promoted to major highways outside the city, Red Square is often considered the central square of Moscow and all of Russia.
Kremlin and Red Square, Moscow is included in Unesco' World Heritage collection of Russia: 1) to represent a masterpiece of human creative genius; 2) to exhibit an important interchange of human values, over a span of time or within a cultural area of the world, on developments in architecture or technology, monumental arts, town-planning or landscape design; 3) to be an outstanding example of a type of building, architectural or technological ensemble or landscape which illustrates significant stage in human history; 4) to be directly or tangibly associated with events or living traditions, with ideas, or with beliefs, with artistic and literary works of outstanding universal significance. 

Church of the Ascension, Kolomenskoye (Moscow, Russian Federation),
The Church of the Ascension was built in 1532 on the tzar's estate of Kolomenskoye, near Moscow, to celebrate the birth of the tsarevich who was to become Tsar Ivan IV ('the Terrible'). One of the earliest examples of a traditional wooden tent-roofed church on a stone and brick substructure, it had a great influence on the development of Russian ecclesiastical architecture (the old version of it's design see in slide show below).

Ensemble of the Novodevichy Convent (Moscow, Russian Federation),
The Novodevichy Convent, in south-western Moscow, built in the 16th-17th centuries in the so-called Moscow Baroque style, was part of a chain of monastic ensembles that were integrated into the defence system of the city. The convent was directly associated with the political, cultural and religious history of Russia, and closely linked to the Moscow Kremlin. It was used by women of the Tsar’s family and the aristocracy. Members of the Tsar’s family and entourage were also buried in its cemetery. The convent provides an example of the highest accomplishments of Russian architecture with rich interiors and an important collection of paintings and artefacts.
