See the world-famous sights of Russia’s capital by foot on this 2-hour Moscow city tour. With an expert guide, walk from one iconic landmark to another as you hear about Moscow’s long and turbulent history. Stroll around the huge, cobbled space of Red Square to see the Kremlin, Lenin’s Tomb and onion-domed St Basil’s Cathedral; pass the legendary Bolshoi Theatre, and amble around the ornamental Alexandrovsky Garden, home to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Numbers are limited to 10 on this small-group tour for a more personalized atmosphere.
What to Expect
Meet your expert local guide near the Bolshoi Theatre in central Moscow, and after a brief introduction, start out on your 2-hour small-group walking tour.
While you stroll, hear interesting tales from your guide that shed light on the history, architecture, culture and politics of Russia’s capital, both now and through the ages.
As you walk and talk, pass a string of top Moscow attractions and historical sights. Wander into Red Square, the vast, cobblestoned plaza that forms the heart of the city, and hear about the massive military parades that were staged here during Soviet days.Gaze up at the candy-striped, onion-shaped domes of St Basil’s Cathedral and learn how this extraordinary church was built, first and foremost, to grab people’s attention.
Pose for photos outside the unmissable church and then continue across Red Square to Lenin’s Tomb, the mausoleum where the famous Bolshevik leader lies embalmed for all to see.
Pass the massive State History Museum, whose artifacts document the history of Russia from as far back as the ice age, and pause outside one of the country’s first department stores: GUM.
Then, swing by the swish boutiques and handsome mansions of Nikolskaya Street, and pass the legendary Bolshoi Theatre, the six-tier concert and ballet auditorium.
Stroll through the colorful Alexandrovsky Garden for grandstand views of the Kremlin, and hear all about the history of this huge, fortified complex, the seat of power for the now long-done Soviet government and today’s president.
Stop at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier where the Changing of the Guard Ceremony is held, and throw a coin in the Alexandrovsky’s mock-ruined grotto for luck.
After around two hours of exploring, return to the original start point where your tour ends.
