City tour this is the best way to know the city and learn about the history of the Russian capital. On our way we will visit many places of interest such as one of the largest squares in the world –Red Square – situated next to the walls of the ancient Kremlin, the Mausoleum of Lenin and St. Basil Cathedral of the 16th century. We will make several photo stops; one of them is the world-famous view of the Kremlin from the embankment of St. Sofia. Seven buildings – the towers that were constructed after the Second World War - are the symbols of modern Moscow. One can enjoy the excellent panorama of the towers and the famous Cathedral of Christ the Saviour from the viewing point of Moscow University.
The metro of Moscow is arguably the most beautiful metro in the world. All the stations are different; each has a unique style. Some people say that states are as beautiful as halls in a palace. As of 2013, the Moscow Metro has 192 stations and its route length is 320.9 km. After a tour of the most beautiful and richly decorated stations we invite you for a walk along Arbat Street. It is a pedestrian street about one kilometer long in the historical centre of Moscow. The Arbat has existed since at least the 15th century, thus laying claim to being one of the oldest surviving streets of the Russian capital.

The history of this museum dates back to 1860 when an entrepreneur Pavel Tretiakov started to buy objects of art for the decoration of halls and rooms of his Moscow house. Every year he bought dozens of new works of art at the exhibitions and in the studios of Russian artists. Very soon in 1872 he had to order to build a separate building next to his house to store the growing collection. The museum was transferred to Moscow in 1892. Today the collection that numbers more than 100.000 pieces can illustrate the development of Russian art from its origins till the 20th century, i.e. from anonymous Russian icons to the paintings signed by.
