Moscow, 2008

Russia revisited There's much to explore on a return visit to the Russian capital, deservedly one the world’s great cities; or ride an overnight train to reach fine old fortified cities like Novgorod and Pskov (see separate galleries).

Revel again in the buzz of Red Square or take in the bucolic tranquility of Novodevichy Monastery; the lingering menace of Lubyanka Square or the staunch piety of worshippers praying in onion-domed churches. Or even join in a little same-sex bonding, beaten with birch boughs in a steamy banya.
