Breakfast at the hotel

10:00 Full day tour including Kremlin grounds with Cathedrals

The Kremlin is the kernel of its city and country, the place to which all Russian roads lead and from which most Russian power emanates. Here Ivan the Terrible and Stalin orchestrated their terrors; Napoleon watched Moscow burn; Lenin fashioned the dictatorship of the proletariat; Khrushchev led communism in the Cold War; Gorbachev unleashed perestroika; and Yeltsin struggled to keep reform afloat. Today the white, blue and red Russian flag flies over the Kremlin.

13:00 Visit Red Square

Red Square lies just outside the Kremlin’s north-east wall. It used to be a market square and has always been a place the Kremlin’s occupants chose to make points to their people. The name Krasnaya ploshchad has nothing to do with either communism or the blood that’s flowed here. Krasnyy originally meant beautiful.

Lenin’s granite tomb stands at the foot of the Kremlin wall. From 1953 to 1961 Lenin shared the tomb with Stalin, who when alive initiated the tradition that Soviet leaders stand atop the tomb to inspect the annual May Day and & 7 November parades. From the tomb you emerge into a plot beneath the Kremlin wall where the remains of many more Soviet-era luminaries lie.

St. Basil’s Cathedral rises like at the south end of the Red Square. Despite its Oriental-looking turban domes, the cathedral is in fact the culmination in brick of a wholly Russian style that had been developed in building wooden churches.

No visits are included, all highlights from outside.

4 day. Moscow – Sergiev Posad – Vladimir – Suzdal

Check out

8:30 Sergiev Posad is the town around the Trinity Monastery of St.Sergius (Troitse-Sergieva Lavra), one of Russia’s most important religious and historical landmarks and a place of both spiritual and nationalist pilgrimage. It is 60 km from the edge of Moscow on the Yaroslavl road. The Monastery was founded in about 1340 by Sergius of Radonezh, a monk who wielded enough moral authority to unite the country against Mongol Tatar.

TRINITY CATHEDRAL (Troitsky sobor), built in the 1420s, is a heart of the monastery and in its way the heart of Russian Orthodoxy. Most of the icons are by the great medieval painter Andrey Rublyov.

13:00 Drive to Vladimir.

This town was founded by Vladimir Monomakh of Kiev in 1108 as a fort in the Rostov-Suzdal principality that he gave to one of his younger sons, Yuri Dolgorukiy. Under Yury’s son AndreyBogolyubov it became the capital of the principality in 1157 and the capital of all KievanRus after Andrey sacked Kiev in 1169. The head of Russian church resided here from 1300 to 1326 but then shifted to Moscow.

Assumption Cathedral: It is simple but majestic in form and adorned with fine carving. In the 1470s the Italian architect was instructed to use it as a model when he planned the Moscow Kremlin’s own Assumption cathedral. The Cathedral is a working church.

Cathedral of St. Dmitry: It is the only surviving part of Vsevolod III’s palace complex. Inside, on the larger central vault beneath the princely gallery on the west side, are some beautiful 12th century frescoes of apostoles and angels, almost certainly by Byzantine artists.

Suzdal, 27 km North of Vadimir, is special not just its locely old monasteries, convents and churches but also because they haven’t been strangled by 20th century ugliness, noise and pollution. Suzdal is uniquely peaceful among Russian tourists towns, First mention in 1024, Suzdal was made the capital of the Rostov-Suzdal principality by Yuri Dolgoruliy in the first half of the 12th century.

Savior Monastery of St. Euthymius is Suzdal’s biggest monastery, founded to protect the town’s northern entry in the 14th century. Inside, a tall 16th to 17th century bell tower stands before the seven-domed Cathedral of the Transfiguration of the Savior. Every hour a 10-minute concert of chimes is given on the ball tower’s bells – well worth hearing. The cathedral was built in the 1590s in 12th to 13th century Vladimir-Suzdal style.
