Featured Day Trips, Moscow:


 

     A panoramic City Tour: 

A panoramic sightseeing tour of Moscow is an excellent way to see the Kremlin from outside, the Red Square, Lenin’s Tomb, St. Basil’s Cathedral, the visual image of Russia, exterior of famous buildings and places to which you may return at your leisure.

    The tour includes stops for pictures.

Your professional English-speaking guide will tell you about the history and culture of Moscow, the politics and economics of Russia, and much more

A Tip: If you want to see Red Square in all its splendor, come back in the evening, when the square and its surrounding buildings are beautifully illuminated 

 

 

 

     Kremlin Grounds, Cathedrals & Czar's Treasures: 

Moscow`s Kremlin is a major landmark symbol of Russia. That is why the tour of the Kremlin is always central to any visit to Moscow.  

The tour takes you behind the fortified walls of the original fortress in the heart of Moscow, introduce you to a wealth of sites including the three great Cathedrals, world’s largest Bell and czar Cannon, countless churches and towers.
     You will also be offered a separate tour of the Armory Chambers,  the richest and the oldest museum inside the Kremlin.
The Armory is the treasury of Russian czars with an impressive collection of Russian arms and thrones, crown jewels, carriages and coronation dresses used in the 16-19 cc.
     The tour of the Armory Museum features, besides all, a stunning collection of Faberge Eggs, intricate mini-worlds created by genius jeweler Carl Faberge.
     If the Armory Museum has not sated your diamond lust, then think about adding the Diamond Fund Collection  

(Kremlin closed on Thursdays).  No bags or large purses allowed to carry inside the Kremlin

 


 

     The State Tretyakov Art Gallery:

Russia’s National Gallery is unquestionably a world-class collection displayed in world-class surrounding.

This is the home of the finest collection of Russian icons in the world. In fact you will uncover just as many masterpieces in the 60 or so rooms of the Tretyakov as in any gallery anywhere in the world

 


 

     The Moscow Subway (Metro): 

How many cities in the world could offer their underground stations as tourist attractions?
In some ways, these Metro stations are as valid a record of Russianess as the Tretyakov Gallery; and the pride with which
Muscovites regard t
hem is evident from the way they are maintained.      
This tour selects the very best examples for you – stop and admire the mosaics, the chandeliers and the statues and wonder just how long they would last in a typical western city


 

     The Old Arbat: 


The Stary (Old) Arbat is a charming pedestrian stretch in downtown Moscow with cafes, bars, pavement artists, entertainers and shops selling books, posters, hand-crafted souvenirs and much more. Look out for t
he impressive mural of hand-painted tiles composing the Wall of Peace

     Catherine`s Palace at Pushkin, outside of St. Petersburg:


Otherwise known as Catherine Palace, this stunning baroque-style palace is considered one of the world’s architectural masterpiec­es.

     The sumptuous interior of the palace’s many rooms and grand halls are lavishly decorated to symbolize the extravagant mood which dominated the time. Perhaps the most opulent is the newly-unveiled Amber Room which is adorned throughout with precious amber.
     A trip to Pushkin can be complemented with a mouth watering lunch of traditional Russian cuisine
