There will be plenty of attractions and sights to see along the tour of the Moscow streets with rich Soviet history.

See the Red Square which includes sights like GUM, State History Museum and Basil’s Cathedral, known for its architect Postnik Yakovlev, who was blinded by Ivan the Terrible to never repeat such a masterpiece anywhere else. Over more than 450 years later, it still stands tall – both as a symbol of Russian pride and a fairy-tale looking castle that is one of the most instagrammable places in Moscow. 

After that, enjoy the sights such as the Resurrection Gate, the legendary Lenin’s Mausoleum, Kazan Cathedral, and Alexander Garden where you can see the amazing architecture of old Russia and the Tomb of Unknown Soldier with an eternal flame. There is a Changing of the Guard ceremony that happens every hour in the summer time and 30 minutes in the winter time.

Aside from its UNESCO status, the sheer size and beauty of Red Square draw millions of visitors every year, so make sure you book the tour in advance as it's likely to sell out fast, especially in high season (April-October). 

Next, head to Kitay Gorod and have a beautiful walk through ancient Russian Bohemia with art and markets. Ilinka Street where the financial district is with a merchant’s yard with Ferrari and Maserati showrooms. Take a historic walk along the oldest street of MoscowVarvarka Street - and Kamergersky Lane where most of the outstanding Russian writers and poets lived during the golden age of Russian culture.

After, you will head to the historical city center. Take a stroll through the old center of Moscow and try delicious deserts and delicacies a the Eliseev store (extra cost). See architecture from different time periods. See Arbat street, which use to be another city back in the middle ages with over 500 years of history. 

Take in the views of Christ the Savior Cathedral, the largest Orthodox cathedral in the world, and learn surprising facts such as how much gold was used to cover the dome and what happened with the cathedral in Soviet time.

Finish the tour with a drink in a trendy bar in Gorky Park or any other centrally-located place you like.
