CITY WALKING TOUR 1

CITY WALKING TOUR Moscow

This walking guided city tour shows you around the city center of Moscow. During this excursion you’ll get a good account of the history, architecture and main landmarks of the city. There will be some stops for photographing.

The tour starts at Tverskaya Street—one of the main and most exciting of all streets in Moscow. It leads to the heart of the city—the Kremlin and Red Square.

You will see the Red Square with the History Museum, the Trading Arcades of GUM, Lenin’s Mausoleum and, of course, the symbol of Moscow—St. Basil’s cathedral.

Enjoying the best panoramic views of the Kremlin, you will cross the river and come to the lovely park in the Bolotnaya (Swamp) Square (although it bears no resemblance to a swamp anymore).

Then you will take a stroll to the symbol of the Stalin's rule—"The House on the Embankment", a grey monster with ill fame. It was the residence of the Soviet “aristocracy”.

From the Bolshoy Kamenny (Big Stone) Bridge, you will have a splendid view of Christ the Savior Cathedral, which has an extremely colourful history. Here, you will be able to take panoramic pictures of the Kremlin’s Cathedrals and the Grand Kremlin Palace.

Then you will have the opportunity to relax in the Alexander Garden and watch the change of guards at the Tomb of Unknown Soldier.

additional excursion to ST. BASIL’S CATHEDRAL

St. Basil’s Cathedral

In addition to a standard guided city tour of Moscow you will visit the St. Basil’s Cathedral located on the Red Square. The cathedral was named after Holy Fool Basil the Blessed who was canonised after his death.

This cathedral was commissioned by Ivan the Terrible to celebrate his capture of the Tatar stronghold of Kazan in 1552. Despite its apparent disorder, there is an underlying symmetry to the cathedral, which has eight domed chapels symbolizing the eight assaults on Kazan, clustered around a central, lofty tent-roofed spire. The ninth chapel (that is on the northeastern side) was added by the Tsar Fyodor in 1588 to house the remains of St. Basil.

In this wonderful cathedral you can see 9 icon-stands containing about 400 icons of the 16th—19th centuries and its remarkable walls decorated with oil paintings and frescoes.
