There is a well-known saying that "all roads lead to Rome”, and, in Russia, it is still very much the case that "all roads lead to Moscow", and to Red Square, in the very centre of the city. After all, the roads in this enormous country are measured from Zero kilometer, right in front of the main entrance to the square. But Red Square is more than just the geographical centre of Moscow, it is the city’s living heart. It may not be the biggest urban square in the world - it measures just 330 meters by 75 meters - but you can feel the history here in every stone.
There are many tourist routes through old Moscow, but an excursion around Red Square and Alexander Garden should definitely be at the top of the list. Here you can feel the Russia’s pulse, be transported through its history and appreciate its values. Red Square and Alexander Garden welcomes you with open arms!
You will be able to explore Russia’s central square, and admire all its spectacular monuments, each of which has a long history about which entire books could be written: the Kremlin wall and the Spasskaya Tower - with the most famous clock in Russia, the jewel-like Kazan Church, the unique Cathedral of Saint Basil the Blessed-known throughout the world as a symbol of Russia, Lenin’s mausoleum - a masterpiece of Constructivist design, the elaborate State Historical Museum and GUM - the famous 19th-century department store.
You will walk over the square’s Crimean dolerite cobblestones to the sinister Lobnoye Mesto, and visit the Alexander Garden, dedicated to Russia’s victory over Napoleon. There you will be able to see the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and watch the ceremony of the changing of the guard. You will also be able to stand on the Zero kilometer point and make a wish.
Our guide will tell you many interesting stories about everyday life in past centuries, major historical events and famous historical figures, ancient folk tales, legends, mysteries and secrets – everything you have always wanted to know about the city’s past and present.
