You begin this guided walking tour in Pushkin Square before making your way down Tverskaya Street, where you duck in and out of places only locals know to get an authentic taste of Russian life.

Arriving at Red Square, you'll take in the city’s most iconic buildings—St. Basil’s Cathedral, built by Ivan the Terrible in 1561, and the Kremlin, a  fortress dating back to the 14th century and current home to the Russian president. Both are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

You'll also check out Lenin’s Mausoleum, home to the mummified body of the former soviet leader; the Bolshoi Theater, where the world-renowned Bolshoi Ballet performs; and GUM, Russia’s largest and most luxurious department store.
