Three-days tour in Moscow ver.1

The 1st day (the Kremlin and surroundings):

The Kremlin tour: The Kremlin is a historic and spiritual heart not only of Moscow but of the whole country. All Russian history, its tragedies and triumphs are associated with this medieval fortress – the Kremlin. It is a mixture of European and Asiatic splendor, with the elegance of Italian Renaissance and brightness and brilliance of Byzantium.

Inside the ancient walls of the Kremlin you will see the largest bell in the World - the Tsar-Bell, the largest cannon in the World – the Tsar-Cannon, the 15th century cathedrals of the Kremlin, among them The Assumption Cathedral where all ceremonies of coronation of Russian tsars and emperors and solemn acts of the country took place; the Archangel Michael Cathedral which is the burial place for Moscow grand princes and Russian tsars;  the Annunciation Cathedral which was a domestic church of the grand princes and tsars. The Cathedrals are still decorated with marvelous murals from inside and contain ancient icons.

There are also two museums inside the Kremlin which you can visit. The first museum is the Armory Chamber; it displays the tsars’ coronation dresses, state regalia, royal carriages, ceremonial armory and weapons, the Faberge Easter eggs. The second museum is called the State Diamond Fund and it represents the most valuable gems of Russia, the Royal regalia, platinum and golden nuggets.  Both museums are located in the same building.

Lunch (optional)

Red Square has always been a place of political, religious and cultural significance. This is where “the Sacred War” Victory Day parades are annually held. Visiting the place you will see towers and wall of the Kremlin, the most famous church of Russia - St Basil’s Cathedral, which colorful look was compared to the scales of a golden fish, the monument to Russian heroes Minin and Pozharsky, the Lenin Mausoleum, the State Historical Museum. You will also enjoy magnificent architecture of the GUM Department Store; its interiors are absolutely great.

Then you will go to see the Tomb of Unknown Soldier which is located in the Alexander gardens, next to Red Square.  The Memorial Complex “The Tomb of Unknown Soldier” with eternal flame and the inscription “Your name is unknown, your deeds immortal” was open in 1967 in memory of the soldiers of Red Army. The tomb is flanked by a Guard of Honour, changing every hour. Walking along the Alexander Gardens you will see statues of historic figures of Russia, such as Emperor Alexander I – the winner of Napoleon, and the Martyr Patriarch Hermogenes. Right behind the statue of the Patriarch you will notice an obelisk which was established here to mark the 400th anniversary of the Romanov Royal dynasty.

The 2nd day (a walking tour around Zamoskvorechye and a visit to the State Tretyakov Gallery):

The name of this part of Moscow means literally “Beyond the Moscow-River”. The territory dates back to medieval times and preserves many colorful churches, nice mansions of Moscow merchants, and solemn palaces of the nobility. It is a real pleasure to walk along the old twisting streets and lanes with pretty churches and low stone and wooden houses, imaging how life went on here in the merchant town, when early in the morning the residents of Zamoskvorechye went to their stalls, and in the evenings tired out after a hard days’ work, they would relax sitting before a steaming samovar.  Some of the merchants were very well educated, knew foreign languages and were open to new ideas and innovations. Thanks to such busy and civil-minded people Russian Empire became a great industrial and cultural country on the eve of the First World War.

One of them lived in this district and opened an Art Gallery in his house.  His name was Pavel Tretyakov. A merchant by birth, he was very fond of Russian painting and spent a lot of time searching and then buying canvases of the most talented Russian artists. Later he presented his collection to the city of Moscow.

Nowadays  this museum, named after its founder – The State Tretyakov Gallery, houses the greatest collection of  Russian Art in the world, including a unique collection of icons, dating back to the 11th – 18th centuries.

The 3rd day (the Moscow metro tour and a walking tour in Gorkiy Park):

The Moscow metro tour: The Moscow metro was opened in 1935 and had to glorify the Proletarian labor, achievements and victories of the country.  Each station has unique architecture and design. Today there are more than 200 stations, but the most significant stations were built during the Soviet Era and they are decorated with bronze statues, mosaic and stained-glass panels. That’s why the Moscow metro is considered to be one of the greatest in the World. 

During the metro tour you will visit the most beautiful metro stations, among them are Komsomolskaya, Kievskaya, Novoslobodskaya, Belorusskaya, Mayakovskaya, Novokuznetskaya,  Ploshchad Revolyutsiior Revolution Square. 

Then you will visit a legendary Gorky Park where behind the solemn Soviet-style entrance you can find alleys, ponds, street cafes, fountains, statues. All this makes the place very picturesque and popular. The Garage Museum of Contemporary Art and summer flower shows in the park also attract many visitors. In front of Gorky Park is located the Museon Park where demolished statues of the former Soviet leaders were brought to.
