Tour description

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.

The memorial dedicated to the Victory in the Great Patriotic War was opened on May 9, 1995 between Kutuzovsky Prospekt Avenue and Minskaya Street, but the Victory Park was made here much earlier – in 1961. The Poklonnaya Hill was mentioned for the first time in written sources of the 14th century. It was here where Napoleon unsuccessfully waited for keys to the city to be brought to him in 1812.

The park consists of three parts: the Upper, Middle and Lower Gardens. It features such historical objects as the Kremlin's Kutafya Tower, the Italian Grotto, the obelisk in honor of the 300th Anniversary of the House of Romanov and more. The Post #1 of the Honor Guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier has been located here since 1997.
State Duma of the Russian Federation
The building of the State Duma of the Russian Federation on Hunter's Row was built in 1935 to form a new image of the capital. Here at different times housed the Council of Labor and Defense, the State Planning Commission and the Council of Ministers. The building became a true symbol of Moscow.

Armoury Chamber
The Armoury Chamber, a treasure-house, is a part of the Grand Kremlin Palace's complex. It is situated in the building constructed in 1851 by architect Konstantin Ton. The museum collections were based on the precious items that had been preserved for centuries in the tsars' treasury and the Patriarch's vestry. Some of the exhibits were made in the Kremlin's workshops, others were accepted as ambassadorial gifts.
The Tsar Cannon
The Tsar Cannon is a unique item of the Kremlin’s artillery collection. It was created in 1586 in Moscow's Cannon Court by eminent Russian cannon-caster Andrei Chokhov on the order of Tsar Feodor Ioannovich, the sovereign ruler of All Great Russia. The Tsar Cannon is located at the west side of Ivanovskaya Square, between the 'Ivan the Great' Bell Tower and the Twelve Apostles' Church.
The Tsar Bell
The Tsar Bell was cast in 1733-1735 on the order of Empress Anna Ioannovna by hereditary Muscovy casters and bell founders Ivan Motorin and his son Mikhail. Up till now, the Tsar Bell is considered to be the biggest one in the world. It weighs about 202 ton, it is 6.14 meter high and its diameter is 6.6 meters. The history of making the bell is full of many difficulties, failures, and disasters.
