Moscow Kremlin

Discover the treasures that lie in wait for you behind the walls of Moscow’s most famous landmark: the almighty Kremlin! Home to a myriad of the city’s most exquisite cathedrals and monuments, as well as the official residence of President Putin himself, the Kremlin remains a political landmark in Russia and is visited by thousands of tourists every year.

St Basil's Cathedral
St Basil's Cathedral

St Basil’s Cathedral is one of the most recognisable buildings in the world and is an iconic symbol of Moscow. A true architectural wonder, the cathedral was commissioned by Ivan the Terrible in the 1500’s and is lavishly decorated with vivid bold colours, striking patterns and shapes. The building is made up of nine churches connected by a web of narrow corridors; each church is lavishly decorated with intricate frescoes; however the exterior of the building is equally as impressive with its famous colourful onion domes! A common myth is that once the building was complete, Ivan had the architects blinded to be sure that they never build anything as beautiful again.

The Bolshoi Theatre
The Bolshoi Theatre

Moscow has one of the best theatre production companies in the world – the famous Bolshoi Theatre. It is a symbol of Russia for all time. It was awarded this honour due to the major contribution it made to the history of the Russian performing arts. This history is on-going and today Bolshoi Theatre artists continue to contribute to it many bright pages. Get in touch with our Destination Experts to order tickets for one of its illustrious ballet and opera performances.

St Petersburg

Veronika,
It is a little time after our visit, I know, but I hope it is not too late to say a huge 'Thank You' to you for making our trip so smooth and so enjoyable!
We had a terrific time in both cities, enjoying the culture, the sights and the sounds!
The whole visit could not have been better organised and we enjoyed every second of it!!
We have spent a lot of time telling family and friends all about it and showing them lots of photos!!
Thank you again!!

Two Capitals, group tour.

From day one it was just a great adventure.
We were lucky to be there on Moscow Day and had an unbelievable experience. All the people, costumes, music, dancing and fireworks and I'm sure we could have sat in the streets and had our food. I have never seen a city so clean.
The guides both in Moscow and St Petersburg were knowledgeable, service-minded, they couldn't do enough for us and went out of their way to suggest things and where to go in the evenings.
I loved the Russian food, but wish Bosch ? had been on the menu. I liked the Russian hotel in Moscow best, but both hotels were fine. We had problems with the air condition in St Petersburg, but the service was quick and polite to get it fixed.
The train journey through the countryside was lovely and made it possible to see more than just cities.
The castles and churches ,cathedrals and palaces were breathtaking, never before seen so much gold. Interesting to hear and see about the restorations being done, just incredible clever work done. It was surreal to visit all the places one has seen in books and on tv and films, just being there a dream come true. The tube stations in Moscow were magnificent and canal trip in St Petersburg, I could go on and on.
The weather was also fantastic while we were there. The group was just right, eight of us, but we agreed on everything, got together when we were on our own and explored the cities.
I have had a journey of a lifetime and made memories I will treasure for the rest of my life.
