A stone's throw from Moscow's imposing Red Square sits the grand dame of the Kempinski chain, the recently renovated 227-room Hotel Baltschug Kempinski Moscow. Its renowned Cafe Kranzler is the calling card of the city's corporate elite.

The entire second floor, designed in classic European chic, is now dedicated conference space, housing 12 meeting rooms and the Vladimir ballroom, which together can accommodate up to 1,000. The property's circular Kremlin tower suites offer stunning views of the Kremlin, Red Square and St. Basil's Cathedral.

New to the city is the $27 million Garage Museum, dedicated to Russian contemporary art, which opened in June of this year opposite Gorky Park.
