After breakfast in your hotel, enjoy a guided visit to the Moscow Kremlin and see all the treasures of the famous museums including the Armoury. “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". And "Kremlin" meant a castle.
Touring Red Square, passing by Russia's most famous St Basil's Cathedral, we will then take a tour in the city centre (GUM department store, Nikolskaya street which surprisingly became "people's FAN zone" during FIFA World Cup 2018, KGB building, Bolshoi theatre).
After a lunch break, we continue with a visit to another must-see, the Tretyakov State Art Gallery to explore the collection of Russian art masterpieces. The second rival in size and significance is the Russian Museum in St Petersburg. There is no better place to enjoy Russian art from the 9th century till the present days!
We will also take a couple of rides to visit the most amazing underground palaces of the world-famous Moscow metro.
