Tour description

In this tour we will take you into the very heart of Russia - the Kremlin. You will explore the grounds of this ancient fortress which is so central to the country’s history, and visit the majestic cathedrals where the tsars were crowned and where many of them are buried. You will also discover the wonders of the Kremlin Armory - one of Moscow’s oldest museums, with its incomparable collection of armor and weapons – most of which dates back to the 15th and 16th Centuries, along with Russia’s ancient coronation regalia, state carriages used by rulers including Boris Godunov and Catherine the Great, and fabulous collections of historic jewelry, ceremonial costumes and gold and silverware. You will have lunch in a traditional Russian restaurant, and, afterwards we will take you along Old Arbat - one of the city’s most historic and fashionable streets. With its many museums, theaters, old churches and antique shops, as well as cafes and restaurants, this pedestrian street has long been a favorite meeting place for Muscovites and visitors alike. Finally - you will take a cruise in a luxurious river boat along the Moscow river, one of the most relaxing ways to discover the city. You will enjoy dramatic views of many of the city’s main sights: the Kremlin and the sinister House on the Embankment, the Christ the Savior Cathedral, Novodevichy Convent and the grand University building, and much more!

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.
Diamond Fund
The Diamond Fund – this is where Russia’s unique jewellery is kept. Catherine II’s big Imperial crown and a diamond brooch from her coronation cloak, the famous 136-carat emerald, Ceylon 260-carat sapphire, and the Orlov and Shakh giant diamonds. There’s also unique jewellery, like the Bouquet of Daffodils and the Big Bouquet. The museum has the biggest diamonds and unique gold nuggets.
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.
