DAY 2
Moscow. City tour + Kremlin
Russia is home for some of the most beautiful architecture in the world. Pokrovsky Cathedral, or St. Basil's Cathedral, is not just a church. It is a memorial temple constructed on Red Square in honor of the capture of Kazan and Astrakhan. The main fight in which the Russian troops won a victory happened in the day of the Intercession of the Theotokos. So the temple was consecrated in honor of this Christian holiday. The cathedral consists of separate churches. Each of them is also consecrated in honor of holidays in which there were decisive fights for Kazan: Trinities, the Palm Sunday and others.
The name "Kremlin" means "fortress inside a city", this construction had to protect the city from enemies. The Moscow Kremlin acquired the status of a sacral symbol representing the power of the great country. A holiday to Moscow is not complete without a visit to the Kremlin. Modern walls and towers of the Kremlin were constructed of red brick at the end of the 15th century. Now behind its walls, there are government buildings and a huge museum complex where thousands of artefacts telling about the history and the culture of Russia are stored. In 1990 both Red Square and the Moscow Kremlin were included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
Red Square is a historical symbol of Moscow. The name of the square originated from the Russian word "Krasnaya" meaning "red" because it is related to the word "krasivaya" meaning "beautiful". The red square separates the Kremlin from a historic merchant quarter known as Kitai-gorod. Thousands of tourists come here not only from all corners of Russia but also from around the world.
All these places you will see during the second visit day. City tour and visit Kremlin will wait you at this day.

In 1892, Tretyakov presented his already famous collection of approximately 2,000 works (1,362 paintings, 526 drawings, and 9 sculptures) to the Russian nation. The collection contains more than 130,000 exhibits, ranging from Theotokos of Vladimir and Andrei Rublev's Trinity to the monumental Composition VII by Wassily Kandinsky and the Black Square by Kazimir Malevich.
