Enjoy a guided visit to the Moscow Kremlin, and see all the treasures of the famous museums, including the Armory and the Diamond Hall. “Kremlin” is not actually a specific place name, but means “fortress”. The most well-known kremlin is of course the one in Moscow, at Red Square. And Red Square is not actually Red because of the red bricks, but because "red" in the old Russian language meant "beautiful".
There are many kremlins in Russia and in Moscow alone we will show you a few!

Tour continues with a visit to the Novodevichy Convent. It was founded in 1524 to celebrate the victory over Lithuania. The oldest building is the white Cathedral, with 16th-century frescoes.
