Moscow is a city that can take many months, if not years, to get to know properly, and visitors often do not know where to start - there is so much to see! We will show you the city in a day packed with variety and wonder. In the first half of the day we will take you round the highlights of the city in our comfortable tour bus, and our guide will keep you entertained with fascinating true stories about the city’s past, present and future.
We will stop for lunch in a traditional Russian restaurant, where you be able to discover the country’s rich culinary heritage. After lunch we will take you to the most historic site in Moscow: the Kremlin. We will show you around this city within a city, and you will visit the ancient Kremlin cathedrals, where generations of tsars were crowned and buried.
Then you will visit one of Moscow’s oldest and most fascinating museums - the Kremlin Armory. With its unique collections from the tsarist period: historical armor and weapons, Russian and European silver and gold tableware and jewelry, ancient state regalia and ceremonial vestments, historic clothing, the carriages used by many of Russia’s tsars, and Fabergé eggs, it truly has something for everybody!
Within the Armory is another great treasure house - the Kremlin Diamond fund, which contains the former Imperial treasury - the personal gem collections of Russia’s tsars - updated with more recently - discovered specimens. Here you will see the Great Imperial Crown made for Catherine the Great - which alone contains 5000 diamonds - along with other priceless cut and uncut diamonds and other precious stones, many with a fascinating history.
