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. Red Square is also the site of Lenin’s Mausoleum, where if open, you can pay your respects. 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.
Today we will take you to the Kremlin Military Tattoo.
A day combining art in every sense! We explore the Tretyakov Gallery which houses the best examples of Russian art, from icons to modern art, including Soviet propaganda paintings. This afternoon, we take a ride on the underground, seeing the Moscow Metro stations, built during Stalin’s rule as “palaces for the people”. Lavish designs, with columns and chandeliers, sculptures and paintings, they truly are a sight to behold. Later we will take you to the ballet.
