    Day 2MOSCOW – RED SQUARE – LENIN MAUSOLEUM – KREMLIN – METRO TOUR – RUSSIAN CIRCUS

    Embark on a city tour of Moscow with a full-day guide, covering Red Square, Kremlin, and St Basils Cathedral. Historically, The Square was meant to serve as Moscow’s main marketplace. It was also the site of various public ceremonies and proclamations, and occasionally a coronation for Russia’s Tsars would take place.

    Lenin’s Mausoleum, also known as Lenin’s Tomb, situated on Red Square in the centre of Moscow, is a mausoleum that serves as the resting place of Soviet leader Vladimir Lenin. His preserved body has been on public display there since shortly after his death in 1924, with rare exceptions in wartime.

    Kremlin Moscow is what The White House is to America. It symbolizes both the Russian & Soviet Union Power &authority. Built by outstanding Russian & foreign architects from 1482 -1492, Kremlin which means ‘Fortress inside a City’, holds the Government of the Russian Federation. It is the prestigious residence of the President now, but historically speaking, it was the great Prince Zudal whose residence it was much earlier, who gave the world, its stone walls, and towers, and the miracle of its cathedrals, mural paintings, and the Great Hall which witnessed State ceremonies, giving Kremlin an outstanding & universal value. Kremlin, after 200 years of obscurity that ended in 1918, has become the seat of Governance ever since.

    St. Basil’s Cathedral is Moscow’s and maybe even Russia’s most recognizable sight and one of its architectural treasures. Then visit Tsar Bell, the Guinness Book of the World record Bell. The Tsar Bell is one of the highlights of the Moscow Kremlin ensemble; it’s the biggest bell in the world and weighs about 200 tons and a height of 6.14 meters but no one has ever heard its ringing. The bell was broken during a big fire and it was never lifted on a bell tower. Later visit Tsar Cannon, the largest bombard by calibre in the world in Guinness Book of World Records. It is a major tourist attraction in the ensemble of the Moscow Kremlin. The Tsar Cannon is made of bronze and weighs 39.312 tonnes and has a length of 5.34 m. Its bronze-cast barrel has an internal diameter of 890 mm and an external diameter of 1,200 mm. After the French invasion Napoleon Bonaparte considered removing it to France as a war trophy. The Tsar Cannon is a unique item in the Kremlin’s artillery collection.
