Tour highlights

Unesco listed Red Square

In fact the square's name derives from the word 'krasnyi', which once meant 'beautiful'. The varied beauty of the architecture and the magical atmosphere belie the square's often brutal and bloody history, but the combination makes Red Square a truly fascinating place that you'll want to come back to again and again.

The Moscow Kremlin

It is a historic fortified complex at the heart of Moscow. The complex serves as the official residence of the President of the Russian Federation. The Moscow Kremlin submitted to UNESCO World Heritage. The existing Kremlin walls and towers were built by Italian masters over the years 1485 to 1495.

The Armoury Chamber

The Armoury Chamber is a unique treasury-museum displaying the wealth accumulated by Russian rulers from the 12th century till the October revolution of 1917. Walking in the exhibition halls you are having a journey through the centuries. You can see the life of Russian monarchs reflected in the precious items of applied art.

Gulag Museum

An estimated 20 million people died during Stalin's reign of terror. At the height of the terror, in the 1930s, victims accused of plotting against Soviet power were executed en masse. Visitors of this unique museum can see what was the life in the camps and read about the experiences and suffering of individual prisoners.

Cosmonautics Museum

Apart from anything else, the shear aesthetic beauty of the displays should impress. The other-wordly sheen of the hi-tech materials used to construct space craft is extraordinary when seen close-up and, combined with a host of cosmos-themed artwork, the exhibition is a compelling reminder of the time when space exploration was still viewed unequivocally as mankind's last great adventure.

"They used to have palaces for king's, we are going to build palaces for the people!" said one of the main architects of the Soviet subway.
