With our expert guide you will discover the underground palaces of Moscow, the famous Moscow Metro, which is considered to be one of the most sophisticated and extravagant in the world.  During the driving tour you will see Stalin’s skyscrapers (aka the “Seven Sisters”) and enjoy a photo stop at Vorobyovy Gory, one of the most spectacular and popular viewpoints over the city. Later you will see a symbol of this epoch, the “House on the Embankment”, which was home for the political and cultural elite of the Soviet Union. One of tour highlights is a stroll in Muzeon Park of Arts, which often is referred as Park of the Fallen Idols. The place has a vast collection of demolished sculptures of Soviet leaders from all over the capital. The tour will conclude with you marvelling at the masterpiece of the Soviet natural landscape, Gorky Park of Culture and Leisure.
