*Customizable tour!
On this tour we'll do main sights combined with some off-the-beaten-path places, the choice depends on your preferences.

Red Square, GUM, Lenin's Mausoleum, Kazan Cathedral
Fabulous Red Square and Alexander Garden is the focal point and a traveller's fantasy stop. Definitely got to be visited during the evening, when it is incredibly lit up!

St. Basil's Cathedral
Truly iconic sight on Red Square shaped as a huge flamed bonfire. This beauty is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Cultural, political and historical centre of whole country. Tsar Bell and Tsar Cannon, the largest cannon and the largest bell on the planet.

Manege Square, Alexander Garden, Tverskaya street, Eliseev Emporium, Bolshoi Theater, Kitay Gorod Wall.

Kitay Gorod, Zamoskvorechye and historical downtown of Moscow
This area is a must for a walk - you will see and feel the spirit of ancient Moscow. History, mystery, architecture, shopping and good food in a cosy restaurant with Russian interior.
