This winter head over to Moscow and spend three days exploring Russia's magnificent capital city. With metro tickets and a three day Moscow Pass included, you'll be sure to discover the main highlights. The Moscow Pass includes a one day use of the City Sightseeing Hop On and Off bus, a river cruise on the Moscow River and a tasty entry into the Museum of Chocolate, as well as many other museum entrances and various discounts and freebies at restaurants and cafes. Explore the famous Red Square, admire Saint Basil's Cathedral, spend time at the historical Kremlin and visit the Armoury - a museum of national treasures.
Arrive in Moscow and take the Aeroexpress train which runs non-stop to Paveletsky Rail Terminal, where you can take the metro from Paveletskaya metro station for a few stops and one change to Baumanskaya Metro for a short walk to the Mercure Baumanskaya and check in for 3 nights.
With your 3 day Moscow Pass there are 2 routes and 40 sightseeing stops in and around the centre of Moscow or you can just sit back and enjoy the entire 2 hour loop from the top deck. Make time to explore Red Square and with your Moscow Pass entrance into St Basils is included and shouldn't be missed. It's unlike any other Orthodox church in Russia (and we've seen a few!) with its maze of wood panelled corridors connecting small chapels over various floors. (B)
