What to expect

With a guide discover the history of the Red Square and the buildings laying on it: from Lenin's Mausoleum to the GUM department store, passing by the walls of the Kremlin and the State Historical Museum. Moreover, you'll have the chance to visit one of the major symbols of Russia: Saint Basil's Cathedral.

The Red Square is surrounded from one side by the red-brick wall of the Kremlin and by the spectacular building of GUM on the other side. GUM is a very particular place, being just a department store, with all the most famous luxury brands in it, it is classified as a national heritage of Russia. Enjoy the interior of this unique creation of Neo-Russian style and find out more about its history, for example that it hosted big communal apartments during the Soviet times.

Have a walk along the walls of Kremlin from the State Historical Museum to the famous mausoleum of Lenin, where your guide will explain its structure and tell the story of the Soviet necropolis.

Located south of Red Square next to the Moskova river embankment, the Cathedral of Basil the Blessed is surely one of the most famous symbols of the Russian capital. An extraordinary construction with 10 autonomous chapels, that was constructed in the middle of the 16th century after the great military victory of the army of Ivan the Terrible. Passing from one chapel to another you will discover the real name of this religious monument as well as the history of Basil, blessed of Moscow, under whose name the cathedral is known to the whole world.
