Tour Details

We begin our journey from your hotel and drive directly to our first stop – the Kremlin Embankment,  that makes you plunge into the Moscow atmosphere. Driving through the oldest Russian street of St. Barbara, we get to the Lubyanka with two famous neighbours – the strict KGB Headquarters and the vivid Detsky mir (Children’s World Department Store). The world-famous Bolshoi theatre is also near.

Our next stop is Christ the Savior Cathedral, the largest Orthodox cathedral in the world, with the picturesque Patriarch Bridge. Later we go to the New Maiden Convent – this 16th century monastery is part of the UNESCO list of World Heritage and just a wonderful place to walk and enjoy your thoughts.

After leaving the car in the city center we will admire the best of the best of Moscow – always vivid Red Square, glamorous GUM, the Alexander Garden and, of course – the Moscow Kremlin. Being once a city itself, nowadays the Kremlin of Moscow is a part of Moscow megapolis – but what a significant part! It is ready to show you its main roles – actual residence of the President, the main Russian museum and one of the main Orthodox sights in Moscow.
