Private city tour with car & guide.
Start a panoramic tour of the capital. You will see many ancient churches and cathedrals contrasting with modern high rise buildings and glamorous shopping malls, Russian White House and huge cathedral of Christ the Saviour and giant statue of Peter the Great. Passing the University, continue to the Sparrow Hills, the highest place in Moscow.
Overnight at your choice hotel.
Breakfast at the hotel.
The tour of metro.
Explore the famous Moscow metro on your way to the Kremlin.
The architectural style and fascinating marble decor of many stations deserved the name of the “Underground Palace”.
The first line built in the 30-ies abounds with naive revolutionary symbols and sculptures. The decoration of after-war lines built in the 50-ies is much more exuberant because it had to demonstrate the advantages of a new socialist society.
Guided tour of Kremlin.
It is the most important landmark of the capital and its historic nucleus, the former residence of the Czars, now the seat of the Russian President. On Kremlin grounds one can see the Arsenal, 4 ancient cathedrals, the huge Belfry of Ivan the Terrible, the Patriarch’s Palace, the Czar Bell and Czar Cannon and more…
Enjoy the Kremlin’s most precious gem – Armoury, Treasury of Czars. The Armoury’s huge collection consists of many precious gifts once presented to Russian Czars by foreign monarchs and ambassadors as well as their thrones and clothes, ceremonial carriages and armour, Faberge works and Czar’s regalia.
Lunch is on your own.
Enter the square through the Iverskaya Gate near the small church of our Lady of Kazan.You will see the beautiful red-brick building of the History Museum, oldest department store GUM with a very long facade, the place of execution, the Lenin’s mausoleum and the famous St. Basil’s cathedral, perhaps the most eye-catching structure in Moscow.
