Ready for a morning full of classic sights? Let’s travel on our tour bus to see what makes Moscow one of the most unique cities in the world!
Russia is synonymous with ballet and opera, making a trip to the Bolshoi Theatre an absolute must. See the building that houses the biggest ballet company in the world and serves as an important symbol of Russia worldwide. A short distance from here are two of Moscow’s most famous streets, Tverskaya and Nikolskaya. The former is an absolute paradise for shoppers and the latter, a pedestrian-only walkway with historic buildings on either side.
The layout of Moscow is quite interesting, three concentric rings allow for pedestrians and cars to navigate the city efficiently. We will drive along the inner most circle, The Garden Ring, through the Arbat District to Kutuzovsky Avenue. From these roads extensive views of the Moscow River will be visible. Along its banks you will see the 322-foot statue of Peter the Great and hear about the controversy surrounding the gigantic sculpture’s installation. Other sites along the river included in the tour are: Gorky Park and the White House, Novodevichy Convent, and The Cathedral of Christ the Saviour.
With a view of all the sites we take you to, Sparrow Hills is bound to impress. It is located by Moscow State University, the tallest of Stalin’s seven skyscrapers, and sports an observation deck where you can take unforgettable photos.
Following our bus tour is a Moscow Metro tour. For those who don’t know, Muscovites are proud of what is often called the most beautiful underground metro in the world. Numerous historic statues, mosaics, and gorgeous designs line the long walkways of the convenient marvel of public transportation. Each station has its own distinct look and fascinating story. Our guides will point out how the metro’s art and architecture reflects the time in which it was built.
After seeing so much, we leave you the late-afternoon and evening with free time to explore at your leisure or rest.
