Take a tour of a Soviet Bunker. Head 65 meters underground to explore the Underground cold war museum - a Stalinist-era bunker that up until recently was a top secret symbol of Soviet Power. Cleverly hidden beneath an ordinary apartment building, on a busy street in the heart of Moscow, 18 floors below ground level, this mighty 75,000-square-foot facility was constructed in secret in the 1950's, to protect the select few against a US nuclear attack. Later we take a tour of some of the finest metro stations ever built. Dating back to the Stalinist era these extravagant specimens dazzle with marble pillars and chandeliers. Not your average metro stations.

The hotel (Vega) in Moscow was far better than we expected equally as good as 3* hotels in Europe that we have stayed at.
