The Kremlin, Red Square and the Armoury with a private guide


The old Moscow cannot be compared to any other place in the world. The Kremlin (the word you can often hear in the news) is the oldest part of the capital, a mighty fortess and a residence of Russian rulers. Splendeur of the roayl court can be felt here, on the Cathedral square surrounded by the 15-16th centries churches.

Red Square by the Kremlin must be the most iconic views of Moscow. The main square of the country witnessed many historical events and still hosts military parades and other events. Walking around the square we will see an amazing St. Basil's Cathedral, Lenin's Tomb where the body of the founder of Soviet Union is still kept, and an elegant GUM shopping center.

A Recent Review of this tour

Maria's vast knowledge of Russian history was portrayed to us in a very interesting and informative way. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the Kremlin, Red Square and, particularly, the Armoury Chambers where Maria gave us a very detailed account of the exhibits as we walked through the museum. We are very appreciative of the quality of the tour and will definitely recommend Tours by Locals when we get home. Many thanks Maria.
