Description

Your personal guide will pick you up at your accommodation and provide a brief historical overview of Soviet Union. Head toward the Lubyanka Square where the infamous KGB headquarters were situated - learn the story of the GULAG concentration camps and the Solovetsky stone located on the Square. Continue your tour to Children’s World (Detskiy Mir) -  the most famous children’s store in U.S.S.R. and go up to the store’s roof to admire the view of Moscow. See Stalinist skyscrapers and learn the stories and myths behind their construction.

Stroll down to the Revolutionary Square and gaze at the monument to Karl Marx. Pass the Metropol hotel which was the scene of fierce fighting between Czar forces and the Bolsheviks.

Afterwards, head underground and admire 76 bronze sculptures depicting the Soviet people on the Revolution Square metro station. Continue travelling by metro to VDNKh - a large park and exhibition center that was constructed on the eve of World War II and has become a symbol of the U.S.S.R. Take a picture next to the “Worker and Kolkhoz Woman” statue that has become the embodiment of Soviet sculpture. Walk past the monument to the “Conquerors of Space” and see the Cosmos Hotel - the largest hotel in Russia, that was built to host the participants of the 1980 Olympic Games.
