Discover all the must-see sights in Moscow in just one day! Visit Red Square and look inside the mysterious Kremlin walls!
Do you know how many towers are in the Kremlin famous triangle, how much each star on their tops weighs and what is it made of?
Why is the Red Square called Red?
Whose body was embalmed and displayed close to the Lenin's in the Lenin Mausoleum?
Where does Russian president work and where does his private helicopter lands? I will respond to all these questions and show you the exact places, giving you much more interesting and breathtaking details on the history of the Red Square and Russian government's headquarters- Kremlin.
I am offering a unique tour not only to the Red Square (including St Basil's Cathedral and GUM) and Kremlin (with its Armoury Chamber and Diamond Fund), but much more than this. You will walk in the Alexander's Garden, see the splendid Bolshoi Theater, which official renovation cost was 21 billion rubles ($688 million) and discover plenty of other grandiose places and building of extreme importance and significance as the main part of the Russian culture and legacy.
I will pick you up at your hotel, happy and prepared for the adventures=)
The first stop is inside the Kremlin walls. Kremlin has always been perceived as a symbol of power and might of the Russian land and you'll confirm it. We will visit two churches on the Cathedral Square inside the Kremlin.
Then we'll proceed to the Armoury Chamber - world-famous collection of the Russian treasures. Afterwards a unique collection of jewelry items, rare specimens of precious stones, gold and platinum nuggets of the Diamond Fund will be waiting for us.
After lunch you will see Manezhnaya Square and beautiful blossoming Alexander Garden with the Tomb of Unknown Soldier. Then we'll visit long-waited Red Square and the brightest symbol of the city - the extraordinary St. Basil Cathedral with its joyful multi-coloured domes. You will shop at the luxurious GUM Department Store.
We'll also have a stop in front of the Bolshoi Theatre and the building of the lower house of Russian Parliament (State Duma).
