Taking a vacation to the city of Moscow in Russia is one of the most exciting things that travelers can do. And while most of the city's attractions have some kind of cost associated with them, there are also several things to do in Moscow that are completely free of charges.

Visitors to Moscow typically rave about their time in Russia's capital city but one thing that is a common complaint is the unreasonably high price of things like hotels. It is true that for the average tourist who doesn't have an unlimited travel budget, Moscow can be somewhat expensive.

Saving money there, however, doesn't have to be difficult. Moscow has a number of things to do that won't cost you a single Russian ruble.

One of the most popular attractions in all of Russia is also one that doesn't charge for admission. The Lenin Mausoleum allows visitors an opportunity to see the deceased founder of the Soviet Union preserved under glass. One caveat with this attraction - while admission is free, officials require all carry-in bags to be checked for a small fee.

Another popular attraction is the Yauza Valley. This is a wetland area just a few short miles from Red Square. There are several boardwalks and paths running through the area that are very well-maintained and allow visitors a glimpse of old Russian architecture as they stroll through the Valley.

While you're staying in Moscow, you can also visit Silver Island, which was home to Peter the Great during much of his childhood and features an ornate church building that he frequented as a boy. Several souvenir stands are available nearby if you absolutely must spend those rubles that are burning a hole in your pocket.

Finally there is the All-Russian Exhibition Center that displays a number of Soviet achievements. Replicas of Stalinist Gothic architecture and a recreation of the Vostok rocket that put the first human being into orbit are just some of the things to see at the center which is, of course, free of charge.

Russia is one of the most eclectic and varied tourist destinations in the world and you don't have to have an unlimited budget to see some of the great things that the capital city Moscow, has to offer its visitors. In fact for the attractions listed here, you don't need any money at all.
