Full description
Your tour will start at Pushkinskaya Square, a main spot for locals to gather and meet. From there, you’ll have a taste of local Russian fast food at a spot that’s popular for selling chebureks, which are deep-fried pastries filled with minced meat or potatoes and cheese. Wash it down with a traditional Russian soft drink or tea, before you continue onward along Tverskaya Street, passing by some of Moscow’s main landmarks.

Then it’s on to Red Square, the famous heart of Moscow where you can spot all the legendary landmarks found in the guidebooks. There you’ll find Lenin’s Tomb, which houses the body of the Russian revolutionary. You’ll also find the GUM department store, with its outstanding interiors and many soviet attributes such as kiosks serving the famous soviet ice cream. Finally, the main highlight of Red Square is of course the 16th-century St. Basil’s Cathedral, complete with its bright and colorful domes.

After a short break, explore three Moscow metro stations to see the artistic and architectural masterpieces that are hidden under Moscow’s city streets. You will then visit the Danilovsky Market, which attracts both trendy chefs and savvy locals alike. There you’ll get to sample a wide variety of Russian specialties and foods from nearby regions, both sweet and savory. Happy and full, you’ll be guided to the metro station where your tour will end, or can of course choose to stick around and tour the market further.
