Architecture and Art: Kremlin, Metro and Tretyakov Gallery Private Tour is a walking tour, because the Moscow City Center and the Kremlin Grounds are pedestrian-only areas.

In the morning, your private guide will take you to the State Tretyakov Gallery, where you will see some finest pieces of Russian art, including medieval icons and mosaics and 18th-early 20th century paintings. The Tretyakov Gallery has many portraits of the royals, and it is a great way to revisit the Russian history and attach the face to a name. We will also see portraits of the world renowned Russian writers such as Leo Tolstoy, Fyodor Dostoevsky and Anton Chekhov and enjoy lyrical Russian landscapes.

After the private tour of the Tretyakov Gallery you will be taken to a Russian-Ukrainian restaurant, designed as a Ukrainin farmer’s house and serving authentic Russian and Ukrainian cuisine. During lunch, you will sample Russian specialties such as Borscht soup, Russian pickled vegetables and mushrooms, choice of Russian dumplings called pelmeni or chicken Kiev served with mashed potatoes, as well as  traditional drinks such as kvass (rye malt drink) or mors (wild berry drink).

After lunch, we will continue with the Moscow metro tour. During the tour we will see the 5 or 6 most beautiful, most lavish and most propaganda charged metro stations including Mayakoskaya, Belorusskaya, Novoslobodskaya, Komsomolskaya and Revolution Square.

We will arrive at the Kremlin gate by metro and you will start with the tour of the Kremlin Grounds and Cathedrals, followed by the Armory tour at 4.30pm.

Subject to availability and working hours of the museums, the tour options can be done in reverse.
