Moscow Boat Tour

See the Sights from the River

One great ways to get to know the city is to take a relaxing cruise down Moskva River with an unlimited travel ticket valid for one day or one single tour in one day, and see some of Moscow's wonderful sights. Pass the incredible monument to Peter the Great, created by the notorious Georgian sculptor Zurab Tsereteli, which sits on an artificial island and can only be seen close-up from the river.

As you cruise down the river, make your way down the Vodootvodny Canal pass the bustling Bolotnaya Square, the beautiful Novospassky Monastery, as well as Gorky Park, each of which has its own pier. Leave the river boat at these three locations whenever you feel like exploring a sight or neighborhood by foot, and then hop back on when you are ready to continue with your cruise.

Kremlin Tour

Go Inside Fortress Russia

The word “Kremlin” in Russian means fortress, and in early Russia every important town had a fortress encircled by a wall where the main buildings, churches, and cathedrals were protected. The Moscow fortress, the cradle of the city, is the main fortress in the country and has been designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Built in the 12th century, it took the form we know today in the 15th century.

It is an excellent reflection of the different stages of Russian art - a single monumental centre of architecture, and painting. The best craftsmen worked on its churches, cathedrals, and palaces, bequeathing to us their priceless work framing the power of Russia that is concentrated in its unforgettable alleyways and different sections. Even today the Kremlin is the seat of some of the main political and religious government bodies.

Moscow City Tour by Night

See the Sights After Dark

The capital transforms itself after sunset, offering an absolute different view at night than the one during daylight hours. Stunning and recently installed illumination enhances the beauty of the severe and imposing Stalinist facades, while the magnificent Orthodox churches sparkle. The banks of the Moskva River offer this alternative vision of the city, to be discovered only after the sun goes down.

There is so much to see and do in the fascinating Russian capital city where during the day you can visit mighty Red Square, see the Kremlin and all the other famous sights and visit the convent and its lake that was the inspiration for Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake. But there is nothing quite like seeing them all at night, especially now that they are so beautifully lit!
