1 Day Private Tour to Moscow
Moscow is not a destination reached by any ocean Cruise Lines. However, while on a Baltic cruise you have a chance to spend a full day exploring Red Square, the Kremlin and other Moscow highlights.
What an opportunity! When will you ever be so close to Moscow again?
Our representative will meet and greet you in the St. Petersburg terminal, holding a sign. Then you will be transferred to the airport or train station.
After a flight (1.5 hours) meet your personal local Moscow guide who will assist you to the express train followed by a relaxing (1h) ride as you make your way to downtown Moscow. We also utilize high speed trains (4 h) that operate between 2 cities and arrive directly in down-town of Moscow. On your arrival to Moscow, take a break over a cup of tea and begin your exploration of the city. Watch the changing of the guard at Alexander’s Garden,stroll through the legendary Red Square,the site of many marches and celebrations during Communist era, and the famous GUM department store.
Admire the magnificent St. Basil’s Cathedral, pass through Lubyanka Squareand the headquarters of the former KGB.
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 fromthe 1930s. If the Mausoleumis open, you can pay your respects to comrade Lenin
Proceed to the Kremlin,Russia’s mighty political powerhouse, the seat of the Russian President. During the guided walk through the grounds of the Kremlin you will see government buildings, gold-domed cathedrals and the Tsar’s bell – the largest bell that never rang! Within the 15th century Kremlin fortress, you will visit the stunning Byzantine-style Assumption Cathedral,the oldest and the most important church in the Kremlin where tsars were selected and crowned, decrees were read and solemn events celebrated.
Explore the opulent collection at the Armory museum that contains Russian treasures including court regalia, jewelry, coronation gowns, armor, golden carriages and some of the fabulous Easter eggs created for the Tsars by Faberge.
You’ll also take a ride on the underground and see the Moscow Metro stations that were built during Stalin’s rule as “palaces for the people.” The decoration of the stations takes everyone by surprise: mosaics and statues, stained glass panels and chandeliers.
After the exciting metro ride, board a high-speed train for the approximate four hours ride into St. Petersburg. Your train may reach speed as high as 160 miles per hour as you travel through the Russian countryside. Food is served onboard at an additional cost.
