Moscow day Private tour

Moscow day Private tourMoscow day Private tour. Moscow is a huge city in every sense – as a soviet architectural utopia turned into reality and as one of the biggest cities in the world. Its size raises just one question – how elastic is the material Moscow is made of, i.e. how much bigger can it grow? The city was designed in concentric circles around the ancient Kremlin, with streets and boulevards stretching from the center. As in a labyrinth, no matter where you choose to go you will finally find yourself in the Red Square at the Kremlin wall. Once there you will end up having the chance to see the most amazing museums of the Kremlin. Once you successfully fight the gravitational force of the Kremlin, you might find yourself wandering through the streets defined by Stalinist skyscrapers.

Stop At: State Tretyakov Gallery, Lavrushinskiy ln 10, Moscow 119017 Russia

The largest gallery of Russian fine art in the world, it is located in the old part of Moscow-Zamoskvorechye to the south of Kremlin. The collection contains more than 150 000 examples of paintings, sculpture and graphics charting the development of Russian art from the 10th to the end of the 19th century, from icons, representing different Russian schools of icon painting including masterpieces of Andrei Rublev, through various artistic trends to Itinerants and others, such as Kramskoi, Perov, Shishkin, Repin, Surikov, Vasnetsov etc.. The Gallery was founded in 1856 by two Tretyakov brothers, famous Russian merchants and art patrons. They blend their collections together and created the museum open to public free of charge. Later in 1892 they presented the collection to the city of Moscow. The Gallery is situated in one of the brothers’ estate built in 17-18th century. After Tretyakov’s death in 1898 the building was reconstructed with addition of the peculiar Russian fairy-tale style facade, designed by the painter Viktor Vasnetsov, which has become the emblem of the gallery.

Stop At: St. Basil’s Cathedral, Red Square, Moskva, Russia, 109012

The unique church, which became the symbol of Russia is situated on the edge of the Red Square. It was erected in 1555-1561 by the order of Ivan the Terrible to commemorate the capture of Kazan and Astrakhan. Though the official name of the church is The Intercession of Theotokos Cathedral on the Moat, it is most known as St.Basil’s Cathedral in honour of Basil the Blessed, Moscow “holy fool” and enormously popular person of that time who was buried on the site. The extravagant and brightly coloured ensemble consists of eight chapels topped with unique onion domes surrounding the ninth temple, which is a very unusual planning for a church. Delusion of a drunk confectionary, as it was seen by Le Corbusier. Each church boasts an icon-stand of the 16-19th centuries with great examples of the famous Moscow and Novgorod schools of icon painting. The legend has it that Ivan the Terrible ordered to blind the architects of the Cathedral (Barma and Postnik Yakovlev) to prevent them from ever creating anything to rival its beauty
