Tour description

Short city break – why not Moscow? Moscow has so much to offer tourists that one could spend months here and still be continually discovering something new. Should you just have a couple of days available, our weekend proposal is exactly what you are looking for! We meet you at the airport when you arrive – say on the Friday evening - and take you straight to your hotel. Next  morning after breakfast we take you on a guided tour of the city’s highlights with frequent stops to enjoy the sights and take photos. Moscow’s most historic site - the Kremlin, an ancient fortress and royal palace complex, comes next. This will be followed by a walking tour around Moscow’s historic center, packed with monuments and buildings from every era in the city’s history - from Red Square and Saint Basil’s Cathedral to  Lyubanka Square and the famous Children’s World department store, with its panoramic views over the city center. No visit to Moscow is complete without a visit to the Tretyakov Gallery, where you can discover the history of Russian painting. One of the city’s greatest Soviet sites: VDNKh, a kind of theme park built from the 1930s to the 1960s to display the achievements of the USSR to the world. Heroic gold statues and fountains, triumphal arches and national pavilions - each unique style - this eclectic park is both awe-inspiring and charming. You will visit Moscow’s Cosmonautics Museum: the story of the Soviet Space Program through a wealth of fascinating exhibits. Under the city: explore some of the city center’s most beautiful metro stations with our guide. Both beautiful and functional, these palaces of the people are lavishly decorated with bronze statues, mosaics, marble and stained glass. To finish off your time in Moscow, you will have a chance to do some souvenir shopping, enjoy one of the many small museums or just relax in a cafe and watch the world go by in Arbat – a very popular pedestrian area.  And then – on to the airport for your flight. OPTIONALLY, you can spend an extra night and leave in the morning.

A park, located at the western wall of the Moscow Kremlin. It stretches from the Revolyutsii Square to the Kremlin Embankment. The park was founded 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.
Red Square
The famous square has been the setting or numerous ceremonies, and Tsar’s orders were announced here since the 16th century. In 1945, the WW II victory parade took place here. The Mausoleum was constructed both as a resting place for Vladimir Lenin, the USSR founder, and as a tribune to the communist leaders.
Moscow Kremlin
Located on the Borovitsky hill on the left bank of the Moskva River, the Kremlin is the most famous attraction of Moscow. For many years, it was the center of the state and the center of power in Russia. Russian tsars used to rule the country from here; right now it is the residence of the President of the Russian Federation. It is the most visited place in Moscow together with the Red Square.
Tretyakov Gallery
The State Tretyakov Gallery is one of Russia’s largest art galleries. In contrast to the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts with its extensive collection of foreign art, the Tretyakov Gallery mainly exhibits classical Russian art – paintings, sculptures, icons, and works of decorative arts and crafts dating from the 11th to the early 20th century.
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.
Museum of Cosmonautics
The Museum of Cosmonautics – one of the largest research and technology museums in the world – is located on the ground floor of the Monument to Conquerors of Space (VDNKh metro station). In the museum, you can see exhibits testifying the first achievements and success of national space exploration, including the first spacesuits, the first artificial satellites of the Earth, spacecraft for Moon exploration and exploration of other planets of the solar system.
Dormition Cathedral
The Dormition Cathedral (or the Assumption Cathedral) of the Moscow Kremlin was the key Orthodox cathedral of the Russian state in the 15th–19th centuries. It is where all the emperors of the Romanov dynasty were coronated. The cathedral was the burial place for the Metropolitans and, later, for the Patriarchs of Moscow. This is one of Russia’s oldest and most remarkable cultural and historic monuments, a symbol of ancient Russian architecture.
