Enjoy the most popular attractions during this exciting 5 hour Moscow city tour to Red Square, Russian Kremlin and St. Basil’s Cathedral!
The guide will meet you at the place of your accommodation and will start Moscow sightseeing tour. You will get by foot or by metro to the famous and the oldest Red Square Moscow hidden behind the medieval walls of Russian Kremlin. On the way to the central part of Moscow you will learn the long and fascinating story of its construction, of the Soviet times and the modern days of Russian Kremlin.
Your Tour of Kremlin starts from the entrance gates with two imposing towers – 80 meters high Troizkaya (Trinity) tower and the Kutafya tower. Once you enter the territory of Russian Kremlin, you will see the State Kremlin Palace, the Senate and the Cathedral Square, which is the heart of the Russian Kremlin. It is surrounded with six buildings including three cathedrals – the Cathedral of the Annunciation, the Cathedral of the Dormition and the Cathedral of the Archangel Michael, which is the burial place of the Muscovite monarchs from Ivan Kalita to Alexis I of Russia. Also, during your Kremlin guided tour you will see the Tsar Bell (200 tons) and the Tsar Cannon – the biggest weapon which was ever made in Russia. Another notable structure is the Ivan the Great Bell Tower. This 81 meters high Bell Tower with 21 bells marks the very centre of Moscow and resembles a burning candle. Before the Russian Revolution it was the tallest structure as it was forbidden to construct churches or palaces taller that it. Your private tour guide will show you the Armoury which houses Russian state regalia, including the Imperial Crown of Russia, and Diamond Fund.
On the other side of the Kremlin walls you will find the Red Square Moscow which serves as a venue for all celebrations, concerts and military parades. All around the square there are buildings of the State Historical Museum, Lenin Mausoleum, Saint Basil’s Cathedral, GUM Store and the restored Kazan Cathedral. The only monument which decorates the Red Square is dedicated to Kuzma Minin and Dmitry Pozharsky, who united Russian army and helped to expel Polish invaders from the country.
Don’t miss a unique opportunity to visit 16th century Saint Basil’s Cathedral, one of the best ornate cathedrals in Russia, and admire its labyrinth of narrow vaulted corridors, onion-shaped domes, enamels, icons, frescoes and brickwork.
