Not a first choice, but if you have done most things in Moscow, then this can be next. Because of traffic - the drive can take very lond - we drove less than an hour in the morning, but the afternoon drvie took us 3 hours!!! Our guide was not very talkative and we had to ask questions non-stop otherwise we would not have learnt anything! She also took us to the museum - was interesting.
