Day 2: Moscow

We’ll set out for a  panoramic tour of the city , stopping by the  Cathedral of Christ the Saviour , rebuilt in 1995 as an exact replica of the 1883 version that had been demolished in 1931 by Stalin. We’ll also discover  the Donskoy Monastery , built out of wood in 1592 and truly conceived as a fortress whose goal was to defend the city from a Mongolian invasion. Rebuilt in the 17th century, it is today surrounded by gorgeous castellated ramparts as well as eight square and four circular towers with red-blood crowns. The monastery’s necropolis houses the tomb of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. After lunch in town, we’ll  visit the Kremlin, former residence of the tsars, and take a stroll around the Cathedral Square where we’ll come across the most ancient monuments. We’ll finish up with a visit of the wonderful Cathedral of the Dormition.

The museum houses collections based on the precious items that had been preserved for centuries in the tsars’ treasury and the Patriarch’s vestry: Royal garments, gold- and silverware, arms and armours, etc. The highest artistic level and particular historical and cultural value of the exhibits have made the Armoury a world-wide known museum. > Visit of the Armoury subject to entry quotas set by the Kremlin Administrative Office.

We’ll have dinner and spend the night on board. This evening, join us for an  OPTIONAL tour of the subway and city “by night”.  The Moscow subway stations are some of the most beautiful in the world.
