- Tour of metro
Explore the famous Moscow metro on your way to the Kremlin. The architectural style and fascinating marble decor of many stations deserved the name of the "Underground Palace". The first line built in the 30-ies abounds with naпve revolutionary symbols and sculptures. The decoration of after-war lines built in the 50-ies is much more exuberant because it had to demonstrate the advantages of a new socialist society.

On Kremlin grounds one can see the Arsenal, 4 ancient cathedrals, the huge Belfry of Ivan the Terrible, the Patriarch’s Palace, the Czar Bell and Czar Cannon and more…
