MOSCOW CITY SIGHTSEEING TOUR + ST. BASILS CATHEDRAL:

City sightseeing tour of Moscow is an excellent way to see the exterior of famous buildings and ensembles either it is your first visit to Moscow or you are not familiar with the capital. You will see the Bolshoi Theatre, the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour - Russia's spiritual revi­val, make a photo stop with a splendid pano­ramic view of the Kremlin; the Novodevichy Convent (New Maidens' Convent) - a fortress and monastic ensemble of the 16th century, the Moscow State University, the panorama platform on Vorobyovy (Sparrow) Hills, the White House of the Russian Fede­ration - a landmark of post-re­form Russia; Moscow's boule­vards, historic and cultural centre of Moscow with its muse­ums, theatres and memorials. Visit the St. Basil's Cathedral (The Cathedral of the Intercession of the Holy Virgin), built in 1555 - 1561 to commemorate the victory of the Russians over Kazan Khannate on 1st October 1552. The Russian tzar Ivan the Terrible ordered two Russian architects (Barma and Postnik) to build a monument in honour of the victory, and it is said he had their eyes poked out so that they could never design anything to rival its beauty.
