The historical centre of Moscow, the Kremlin and its cathedrals, monasteries, impressive fortresses and amazing palaces demonstrates the authentic culture and art of the late Middle Ages in Russia. Moscow is one of the rare examples of a good extant atmosphere of old city preserving its beauty in perpetuity, whatever events unfold over time. If you want to know more about Moscow’s history, you need to visit our city sightseeing tour.

Visit of Kremlin and Cathedrals on the Red Square - unique complex of architectural monuments surrounded by ancient red brick walls crowned with 19 towers. Visit one of the most prominent sights of Moscow - the Kremlin with its 19 towers and red brick walls. It was rebuilt several times after being constructed and fortified Moscow with wooden walls and a moat under the order of Prince Yuri Dolgoruky in 1156. Today’s Kremlin was built in the 15th century by Italian Architects after the seat of the Orthodox church moved to Moscow. The reconstruction of cathedrals and chapels of that time shaped the modern appearance of the Kremlin. The Cathedral Square is the centre of the Kremlin with the Cathedrals of Assumption, Annunciation and Archangel Mikhail as its main sights open for visitor. The ensemble of the Kremlin represents some of the best examples of Russian church and secular architecture of 15th-16th centuries like the Palace of Facets, the Church of the Deposition of the Robe, the Bell tower of Ivan the Great and the Spasskaya Tower, the Armory Chamber and the Diamond Fund and the Patriarch’s Palace. The Moscow Kremlin is also famous for the curious couple of the Tsar Bell and the Tsar Cannon designed for amusement of Russian Tsars. Time for lunch. Moscow metro excursion. The first plans for a metro system in Moscow date back to the Russian Empire but were postponed by World War I, the October Revolution and the Russian Civil War. In 1923, the Moscow City Council formed the Underground Railway Design Office at the Moscow Board of Urban Railways. It carried out preliminary studies, and by 1928 had developed a project for the first route from Sokolniki to the city centre. At the same time, an offer was made to German company Siemens Bauunion to submit its own project for the same route. In June 1931, the decision to begin construction of the Moscow Metro was made by the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. In January 1932 the plan for the first lines was approved, and on March 21, 1933 the Soviet government approved a plan for 10 lines with a total route length of 80 km. The first lines were built using the Moscow general plan designed by Lazar Kaganovich in the 1930s, and the Metro was named after him until 1955 named after him (Metropolitan im. L.M. Kaganovicha). The Moscow Metro construction engineers consulted with their counterparts from the London Underground, the world's oldest metro system. Partly because of this connection, the design of Gants Hill tube station (although not completed until much later) is reminiscent of a Moscow Metro Station. Time for dinner. Guide and bus services 10:00 – 17:00. Overnight at the hotel.
