why the Russian style has become known worldwide and a well-known name.

People “Alexander Ivanov” We will immerse ourselves in the magnificent paintings of the most talented representatives of the Russian people, who also reflect important historical events of Russia.
03: THE METRO STATIONS OF MOSCOW 1 hour [tickets included] – “the underground palaces of Moscow”, are distinguished by the splendor of palaces and underground halls. The underground complexes are decorated with statues and reliefs, as well as monumental and decorative compositions (paintings, mosaics, stained glass and paintings) of local artists.

04: TIME FOR REST AND LUNCH [not included] In our tour, we have appropriately foreseen the time for a hearty lunch with national cuisine, so you can relax a little and share your impressions with your friends.
05: OLD ARBAT STREET In every city with a long history, there is a street that attracts tourists – impregnated with a particular spirit, with houses and alleys, each of which can tell its own entertaining story. In Moscow, this well-known Arbat is one of the oldest streets in Moscow. Today, the Arbat is an important monument in Moscow, such as the Red Square, the Bolshoi Theater or St. Basil’s Cathedral.
In the 18th century the most famous noble families settled on the Arbat. At the end of the 19th century, intellectuals replaced the aristocrats. Since 1986, the street is completely pedestrian.
Arbat is interesting because it is not a fixed historic monument, but a living space, in perpetual change. In a word, the old Arbat can be explored to infinity.
06: BEHIND THE SCENES OF THE BOLSHOI THEATER 1,5 hour [tickets included] To visit Moscow and not to see the Bolshoi Theater, symbol of the cultural life of the capital, is an unforgivable mistake. The Bolshoi Theater is a business card of Russia, a source of pride and a symbol of the majestic culture, like the building itself.
Together, we go through the empty halls of the theater, learn the story of its foundation and its “biographical facts”, examine technical innovations such as the underground designer’s scene, look in the boxes of the main stage and as long as we intelligently, we would be allowed to attend the rehearsal of the play.
07: OTEL DROP-OFF Upon completion of the tour, we will return you to your hotel or any other place as you wish.
08: ★OPTIONAL For an extra fee, you have the opportunity to attend one of the epic theatrical performances at the Bolshoi Theater. It is recommended to buy tickets for at least a few months, because the main theater of Russia is very popular with Russians and guests of the capital. For our part, we will do our best to get tickets.
