After breakfast, take a Metro ride with your guide and stop to explore the grandeur of its most impressive stations. Then visit the Old Tretyakov gallery – the main museum housing a collection of Russian art from the XII to the XX century, including the world famous Andrey Rublev’s Holy Trinity.
Today will walk around the ancient streets of Zamoskvorechye – the neighborhood around the Tretyakov gallery. Here you can catch a glimpse of pre-Revolutionary Moscow. It used to be home to craftsmen of all trades. Peter the Great’s reforms brought in merchants with their grand mansions. Later, they were followed by the nobility who built grand palaces. While you explore the many little picturesque lanes, you will forget for a moment that you are in one of the busiest cities in the world. Today, the district is full of pedestrian zones with cozy cafes and restaurants.
