Itinerary

You are picked up from your hotel in Moscow (with Transport option only) and taken to:

Vorobyevi Hills: Take in the incredible views of the city from an observation point atop the hills.

Moscow State University: Admire the amazing architecture of the largest and oldest university in Russia. The university is housed in one of the city's seven enormous gothic skyscrapers and is the great seat of learning of some of Russia's most famous scholars and political figures, including the former President Mikhail Gorbachev.

Novodevichiy Convent: The beautiful 16th century convent was founded by Vasily III in 1524 to commemorate the recapture of Smolensk from the Lithuanians ten years earlier. The convent is the final resting place of some of Moscow's most famous artists, writers, politicians and public figures. Admire the red and white crenellated walls and golden domes of the monastery.

Victory Park: The huge memorial complex, constructed to celebrate the victory of the Great Patriotic War, includes endless fountains and monuments and the memorial Church of St George.

The Triumphal Arch: The Arch is a tribute to the victory over Napoleon. Demolished at its original site outside Belarus Station in the 1930s, it was reconstructed in the Victory Park.

Kutuzovsky Prospect: This is one of the grandest and the most picturesque in the capital. From here, you can see the Arch of Triumph and the memorial complex on Poklonnaya Hill.

Arbat: One of Moscow's most charming and lively pedestrian streets, the Arbat boasts an impressive selection of cafes, restaurants and bars crammed full of artists.

At the end of the tour, you will be returned to your hotel in the city.
