The Moscow Metro provides transportation to more than 2.4 billion people each year (9 million on a daily basis), making it the busiest European system. The stations aren’t just transit hubs – they tell the history of the city in their bewildering design and decoration. The stations were designed so lavishly in the hopes that their beauty would inspire workers on their way to dreary jobs under Soviet rule. These ornate stations eventually became known as “the palaces of the people” for their extravagant architecture. The mighty Russian capital has a special look at night.  Feel its energy and enjoy a memorable sight of the city as the night falls and the impressive cityscape sparkles with colorful evening lights.  The magnificent golden cupolas of Orthodox churches, red stars of the Kremlin towers stand next to the grand Stalin-era façades on the banks of the Moskva River.View must-sees including the Kremlin and St Basil Cathedral in Red Square, enjoy ice cream (own expense) at the 19th-century GUM arcade, admire the illuminated skyline from various viewpoints, and more. Admire the attractive bridges connecting the banks of the Moskva River, the main artery of this metropolis. Observe Moscow from a rooftop of Detsky Mir shopping mall or from posh Ritz Carlton  O2 bar or Ararat Hyatt (food & drinks at own expense).
