Meet your group and Tour Manager at the Park Inn Sadu hotel on arrival. Here you'll be welcomed in traditional style, being presented with bread, associated with hospitality, and salt, representative of a long friendship.
On Day 2 we embark on a sightseeing tour, traveling by coach around some of Moscow's most impressive landmarks. Sparrow Hills, situated on the bank of the Moskva River from which the city takes its name, offers a magnificent panoramic view of Moscow. Here, you will also find the Temple of the Holy Trinity, a whitewashed Russian Orthodox temple with aquamarine domes.
The impressive Moscow State University is another site you visit today, boasting of beautiful collections of diverse architectural styles and enchanting botanical gardens. You also visit Red Square. This city square is surrounded by many of the most iconic sights of the city, including the multi-coloured domes of Saint Basil's Cathedral. Also on the square is Lenin's Mausoleum, where it is possible to view the body of the Communist leader.
There'll also be a visit to the vast Kremlin building, a walled city surrounded by 18th century towers, and the seat of Russian government. This afternoon, and this evening, are at leisure to continue exploring Moscow at your own pace.
