Itinerary

Day 1

Moscow

Start the day with a panoramic view of Moscow from Sparrow Hills, set on the high right bank of the Moscow River. From this vantage point spot the Luzhniki Olympic Stadium, the Baroque towers of the Novodevichy Convent, and the impressive Moscow State University. From here head to Alexander Garden, a green park stretching along the length of the Kremlin, and watch the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, a memorial dedicated to the soldiers who gave their lives during the Second World War.

Next walk to the iconic Red Square, the historical, political and social heart of the city, where you can view the colourful facade and iconic onion domes of St Basil’s Cathedral, and marvel at the glitzy Neo-Russian exterior of the GUM Department Store. Carry on past Lubyanka Square, the site of the imposing retired headquarters of the former KGB, and head to Arbat Street. This pedestrian avenue is thought to be one of the oldest streets in the city, and displays an interesting juxtaposition of historical buildings, modern restaurants and trendy bars.

Following an underground tour of Moscow’s grandiose Metro stations arrive back in Red Square where you can visit the macabre Lenin Mausoleum (if open), where the embalmed body of the Russian Communist Revolutionary leader can be seen on display. After a break for lunch head to the red-brick towers and golden domes of the imposing Kremlin complex. From being the Citadel of the Tsars and headquarters of the Soviet Union, to the current official residence of the Russian President, the Kremlin has been a symbol of the power of the state for centuries. Within its walls visit the beautiful Assumption Cathedral, one of the oldest and most significant churches in the Kremlin, and explore the Armoury Museum, which houses an impressive collection of Russian treasures and artefacts, from coronation gowns and court regalia, to armour and Faberge eggs.
