Full Itinerary

Our tour will include the following stops

  1. Alexander’s Garden
    Start your tour around Manezhnaya Square next to the Zhukov monument and discover one of the most notable memorials to World War II (Great Patriotic War).

    Enjoy a stroll along the Kremlin walls and find out what the Kremlin looked like before the current red brick was used in its construction.

     
  2. Inside Kremlin (optional)
    Go inside the Moscow Kremlin where the Russian Czars were crowned and some of the most fateful decisions in world history were made.

    See the famous Tsar Cannon and Tsar Bell and find out why they were constructed and how they were eventually used, then proceed to the Cathedral Square – the true heart of the Russian empire.

     
  3. Red Square
    Soak in the atmosphere of the most famous tourist attraction in Moscow and find out why the Square is actually named Red (Hint: it has nothing to do with the color of the cobblestone).

    See where the famous Red Army military parades took place that were often an enormous spectacle not only for Soviet citizens but for the entire world.

 

          4. Lenin’s Tomb (outside)
               Pass by Lenin’s Mausoleum and go inside if you would like to see the mummified statue of the        famous revolutionary leader.

               Learn how the mausoleum has changed and who else was mummified in the mausoleum besides Lenin.

 
            5.

                 History Museum (outside)
                 Marvel at the magnificent structure of the Russian State History Museum that stands next to      another notable building – Museum of War of 1812 with Napoleon.

                Find out what was the significance of neo-Russian architectural style and what famous artists put       the finishing strokes inside the museum.

 

           6.

                GUM
                Go inside the most posh and luxury store of Czar Russia, Soviet Russia and modern day Russia and find out what Stalin wanted to put in its place.

                Learn why this was the place that many Soviet citizens came to from all over the U.S.S.R. to buy anything they needed.

 
           7.

                St. Basil’s Cathedral (outside)
                Take a picture with the most famous Russian church while your guide will tell you a tale of the tragic fate of the cathedral’s architects.

                Nikolskaya Street
               Discover the story behind the name of one of the oldest streets in Moscow where numerous prominent buildings are located including an old monastery.

                 Explore the shortest (100 meters) and the most expensive side street in Moscow – Tretyakovskiy    Proezd. While walking the street ask your guide about Kitay Gorod an ancient fortification that was build back in the 16th century but can still be seen today.

 
                9.

                     The Bolshoi Theater (outside)
                     Admire one of the most famous theaters in the world where the astounding Russian ballet originated. Constructed in the beginning of the 19th century it instantly became a marvel of Moscow architecture.
