Night Tour of Moscow
At 21:00 the tour leaves from the Christ the Saviour Cathedral to begin the illuminated Moscow Night Tour.
The route begins along Arabat Street, continuing along the other bank of the Moscow river to take a look at the Ukraine Hotel, one of the skyscrapers constructed during Stalin's rule. Following the river, you will make your first stop at the Moscow International Business Centre, where the avant-garde design of the buildings contrasts strikingly with that of the Soviet period.
Your route will continue along Kutuzovsky street, towards the Moscow Triumphal Arch and Victoria Park, where you will make your second stop. Having admired its commemorative war monuments you will once again cross Moscow to stop in front of the golden domes of the Novodevichiy Convent, after which you will continue to the Moscow State University Viewpoint, which offers spectacular panoramic views.
A new stop at the Moscow River Pier will allow us to admire another beautiful cityscape, before making your sixth and final stop: Red Square. In the square, you will enjoy the spectacular illumination of the Kremlin, St Basil's Cathedral, GUM galleries and the State History Museum.
At 23:30 you will end the tour in Manezhnaya Square, 5 minutes from Red Square.
- The tour will take place in an air conditioned minibus.
