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".

A must see in Russia, St Basil's Cathedral is a construction of outstanding beauty.

Take a walking tour in the city centre (GUM department store, St Basil's Cathedral, Bolshoi theatre, Nikolskaya street which surprisingly became "people's FAN zone" during FIFA World Cup 2018, make a photo in front of always-on-duty KGB building, Bolshoi theatre).
