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!
