Get to know military, religious and entertaining sides of Moscow and see the whole picture during the Moskva river boat trip!
Are you fascinated by the Soviet Era? Are you curious to know some of its military secrets and hidden from a regular tourist details? Visit one of the most mysterious places in Moscow - Cold-War era nuclear Bunker 42 built on Stalin's order. This tour will take you through its undergroung halls and passages at a depth of 65 meters (18 floors!). The atmosphere of the real bunker allows to experience that thin side which separated the world from the beginning of nuclear war.
Proceeding on the tour you are going to see the 344-feet Cathedral of Christ the Savior - the tallest Orthodox church in the world. Why did explode and to whom is it dedicated? Discover it during my tour!
It's time to chill and entertain in one of the largest parks in Moscow Gorky Park. Do you remember the lyrics of the German band "the Scorpions" : "Follow the Moskva, down to Gorky Park, listening to the wind of change…"?=) We'll go straight there!)
And finally let's see Moscow from a boat during the day or at night as you wish.
First I will meet you all happy and prepared for any adventures in your hotel's lobby=)
Then we will head for our first destination Bunker-42. If you are hungry at the end of the tour we can visit the hidden Bunker-42 restaurant located in the same Bunker decorated in a soviet style which is worth a visit for the decor/ambiance alone).
Our next step will be the gargantuan Cathedral of Christ the Saviour. After taking pics of its shiny domes and admiring its opulent interiors we are all ready to go to our next stop - Gorky Park.
If you choose the main deck class in your boat cruise, we will board the boat right on the Gorky Park embankment. If your choice is Royal Class or First Class -we will head for the embankment by the famous Radisson Royal Hotel (Hotel Ukraina) which is an attraction itself and I will tell you why.
The earliest trips leave at 12:00, 15:00 - the latest ones at 20:00, 20:30. If you want to see Moscow in the daylight we can do the boat before the Cathedral.
I leave you at your hotel.
