Welcome to Russia! Airport arrival transfer and hotel check in. Spend what remains of the day at leisure, relax and prepare for an exciting full day of touring tomorrow.
Enjoy a guided walking tour of Red Square and the mighty Kremlin today. Red Square is dominated by the spectacular and iconic St Basil’s Cathedral, with its brightly coloured turban shaped domes. St Basil’s was commissioned by Ivan the Terrible in 1555. Red Square is also the site of the historic and ritzy GUM department store and Lenin’s Mausoleum. Next to Red Square is Russia’s political power house - the Kremlin. Our walking tour takes in the treasures of the golden domed Kremlin, its cathedrals, Ivan the Great’s Bell Tower and the Tsar Bell - the largest bell in the world, which weighs in at over 200 ton! This evening why not try some delicious Russian borsch for dinner - it’s beetroot soup that tastes divine!
