Moscow is inconceivable without the Kremlin. Not only one of the largest and interesting museums in the world included in UNESCO World Heritage List, but also the official residence of the President of the Russian Federation, the Kremlin bears the traces of generations of Russia’s rulers.

The Kremlin sits in the heart of Moscow as one of its most impressive buildings. The list of its famous historic events is endless as it holds the ancient Sobornaya Square and many Cathedrals.

You will have an opportunity to see all of these glorious buildings including the Assumption Cathedral where Russia Tsars and Emperors were crowned, the Cathedral of the Archangel where grand Princes are buried as well as the Cathedral of the Annunciation, Church of the Deposition of the Robe, Patriarch’s Chambers and the beautiful architecture of Ivan the Great Bell Tower. And what is more – you will have a guided tour of the Armoury – the treasury full of history and riches with gold and silver utensils, belongings of famous Tzars from over the years as well as religious robes, ancient state regalia, weapons and luxury carriages.

10:00 – Tratyakov Gallery OR Kolomenskoye tour (4 hrs)

Today we suggest that you make your choice of the two sightseeing options.

If you like Russian art or want to know more about it, you are invited to delve into the depths of Moscow’s art and its underground – Tretyakov Gallery. Founded by the Russian merchant and patron Pavel Tretyakov in 1856, the State Tretyakov Gallery has a unique collection of Russian Art spanning over a thousand years.

If you fancy open air museums, we invite you to visit the old imperial estate at Kolomenskoe – one of the most picturesque and enjoyable of Moscow’s out of town attractions. It is an absolute must see for those with an extra day to spare in the Russian capital. It is shrouded in mystery and myth and is nestled on the steep west bank of the river, surrounded by ancient forest land.

Now the choice is all yours. And if you want to do both tours, just let us know.
