You will find out why it’s named so (and no, not because of color!), walk the same paving stone as the Red Army in 1941, see the Lenin Mausoleum (visit inside if interested to see his body), and stroll along the world-known Department Store “GUM.” You’ll make a stop at the Unknown Soldier memorial in Alexander Garden and watch the change of the guard if time allows.
Next you will see several sights by car including Bolshoi Theatre – the world-famous theatre for ballet and opera, the former KGB headquarters, a monument to the monks who wrote the Cyrillic alphabet, the birthplace of Mikhail Romanov – the first of the Romanov dynasty.
Moving along the river, you will enjoy a breathtaking view of the Kremlin and its massive fortress towers. Your next stop will be to visit inside the biggest Orthodox Cathedral in Russia “Cathedral of Christ the Savior.” Your journey will take you out of the city center to see the New Maiden Convent (UNESCO site) where you will make a stop for memorable photos. You will cross Moscow river to the highest point in Moscow to see the panorama of the city from a hill of 80 meters above sea level. There you’ll make a photo stop to capture the Moscow skyline with Russia’s biggest football stadium and one of the Stalin Skyscrapers – Moscow State University.
