Meet your guide at Kutafia Tower at the Kremlin and get ready for an informative small-group tour.
Envision the grandeur of the Grand Kremlin Palace and walk around its central courtyard, visiting monuments and cathedrals. In Ivan Square, see the popular Tsar Bell, the world’s largest at 20 feet (6 meters) tall. Made of bronze and adorned with portraits of Tsar Alexei and Empress Anna, the bell broke during casting and was never repaired.
Check out the 16th-century Tsar Cannon, one of the largest ever made at almost 20 feet (6 meters) long. From here, view the southern exterior façade of the Senate Palace, which currently houses the Russian presidential administration.
In Cathedral Square, visit the 15th-century Assumption Cathedral, once the main church of Russia and the place of coronation for all Russian tsars and emperors, and view Archangel Cathedral, once a burial place for Moscow’s imperial kingdom. Gaze up at Ivan the Great Bell Tower, reaching a height of 266 feet (81 meters) and topped with a golden dome and 23-foot (7-meter) high cross.
Your small-group tour ends at Borovitskaya Tower, where you can continue to visit other cathedrals of the Kremlin on your own.
