The historic capital of Russia and Europe’s largest city, Moscow is one of the world's great cities. The city is full of tourist attractions, as well as historical places, which add a unique aura to the city. The best way to explore Moscow city is on foot, but as it is a large city with great distances, it is more convenient to use a private car with a professional guide. This tour will take you to the Red Square, Vorob'evy Hills Park’s World War II Memorial, and the beautiful Cathedral of Christ the Savior.
No other site in Moscow defines it quite as thoroughly as Red Square. Depicted in movies and television shows worldwide, it is the epicenter of Moscow’s most famous sites. As you tour Red Square you will see the Kremlin, a mighty fortress of power that holds enough wonders in its walls to occupy curious travelers for days. Also see St. Basil’s Cathedral, the onion-domed symbol of Russia that has captured the hearts of Muscovites for centuries.
The beautiful Novodevichy Convent was founded in 1524 by Tsar Vasily III to commemorate the capture of Smolensk from the Lithuanians. It was intended to serve not only as a religious institution but also as a fortress of defense due to its strategic location. Since the convent was founded by a monarch, it became a convent for ladies of noble birth.

This rich museum is often overlooked in favor of St. Petersburg’s Hermitage. The two, however, complement each other with their breathtaking yet unique styles of art. The Pushkin Museum displays French Impressionist works, ancient Greek sculptures, and Egyptian bronzes, as well as works by Rembrandt, Rubens, and the Italian masters of the Renaissance. A small collection of post-Impressionist art adds a twist of modern to the museum, but the real treat is the ever-expanding exhibition of paintings stolen by Nazis including pieces by Renoir, Daumier, and van Gogh.
