Moscow doesn’t have many “made-for-kids” options for younger travelers, but our Forbes Travel Guide editors suggest introducing any budding Russophile to the magic of the onion-domed buildings inside the bright red Kremlin walls. Then if the weather is nice, the new and improved Gorky Park is worth a visit with its Ferris wheel, roller coaster rides and street performers; the Soviet relic has been reborn thanks to a large investment from Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich. The park now offers a classic boating lake, dance classes, outdoor cinemas, table tennis and other outdoor activities. It’s free and popular with locals of all generations. Finally, if clowns are more up your kids’ alley, the Moscow Circus with its tiger acts and acrobatics is also a hit with younger travelers.
