Explore the cultural capital of Russia and taste bear meat (if you dare)!


What would you see through the window of the bus? What will you feel while the stop lasts only for five minutes and the parking time lasts for half an hour? This tour will make you enjoy the city and indulge your stomach with good food after it!

From the time we meet we will start a long and exciting walking tour around the very heart of the city. We will have time for photo stops, shopping, entering the buildings-all according to your needs and wants, no hurry. I will be telling you the basics of Russian history, culture, mentality, showing you the best places for photos and talking about them. You will walk on the very same streets and paths the Russian Tsar and his advisers did. In the navigation time it is possible to take also a boat trip, you can choose!

By the time we are hungry and tired enough I will suggest you a very good restaurant where you will be able to taste even the bear meat!

The last (optional) step for us will be an evening theater program. I will get you the tickets.
