Enjoy the best of this sprawling capital in 3 hours and visit St. Basil's Cathedral.
Hop aboard a comfortable coach and view a unique panorama of Moscow from the Sparrow Hills, watch changing of the guard at Alexander’s Garden, stroll through the legendary Red Square – the site of many marches and celebrations during Communist times - and the famous GUM department store. Admire the magnificent St. Basil's Cathedral, pass through Lubyanka Square and the headquarters of the former KGB. Walk along the popular Arbat Street with hundreds of restaurants, bars and souvenir shops.
Learn about an architectural style dubbed “Stalin Gothic” and the skyscrapers known as “Seven Sisters” recognizable by their tapered towers. The grandest example is the main building of Moscow State University. Architecturally, Moscow ranges from Russian 17th-century onion-shaped churches to American-style skyscrapers of the 1930s.
Visit the Cathedral of Intercession of Theotokos on the Moat, popularly known as the Cathedral of Basil the Blessed, is a Russian Orthodox cathedral located on the Red Square in Moscow, built in 1555 next to the Kremlin. It was built on the order of Ivan IV (the Terrible) to commemorate the capture of the Khanate of Kazan.
St. Basil's Cathedral is one of the symbols of Moscow. There were originally 8 chapels each representing an attack on Kazan. Later the ninth one was added above the grave of St. Basil. The vibrant colours of onion shaped domes are recognisable and highly symbolic features. As the legend has it Ivan the Terrible had the architect blinded to stop him from creating anything more attractive than this Cathedral.
