An ideal way to feel the pulsation of our stirring city is to start your morning with a stroll down Tverskaya Street from the hotel toward Red Square and the Kremlin, the heart of Moscow. Being the main street of the city for more than three centuries, nowadays Tverskaya is the centre of city’s business, cultural and social lives. On your way along the street you will witness architectural examples of different epochs and thus, have a short but informative course of Russian history. Do not miss the opportunity to drop into some splendid shops the street offers you. Afterwards, follow the street till Manezh Square and enter world-famous Red Square through Resurrection Gate. Prepare to be fascinated by the beauty of magnificent St Basil’s Church. Take a tour around the square and with the Kremlin Clock’s bell tolling, head to Alexander Garden where you may catch the ceremonial changing of the guards at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and enjoy a pleasant walk before lunch time.
After lunch - one of the more relaxing ways to enjoy Moscow is to take a cruise on the Moskva River. The boat passes through the city centre past such famous and historic sights as the Novodevichy Convent, Moscow State University, Gorky Park, Christ the Saviour Cathedral, former Red October factory and much more. You can stay on the open top deck, or chose the enclosed lower deck with a bar. Along the route the cruise boat makes several stops where you can embark or disembark. A round trip takes about 3 hours.
In Moscow we have the best collection of theatres, concert halls and circuses in the world. Our Concierge Team is delighted to recommend a show or arrange tickets for any performance of your choice. A wonderful ending of your evening will be dinner at the one of the Moscow high floor restaurants such as "White Rabbit".
