Moscow: 4 Day Itinerary

Russia, Moscow Guide (B): Moscow: 4 Day Itinerary

Moscow, the Russian capital, is one of the most fascinating places in the world. With its mixture of classical Russian architecture and oversized Soviet constructions, this city has something to offer for everyone. 

Even though you can spend a whole lifetime exploring Moscow, here is the itinerary that I followed during my 4 day stay, which should give you enough time to discover all the main highlights. Enjoy!

Full of history and art, we believed that the best way to discover this incredible metropolis was taking a guided tour with a professional guide.

For our first day in Moscow we booked a Private Walking Tour with Kremlin Tour. They are an official tour operator, and their guides are incredibly knowledgeable and professional. The visit lasted over 4 hours, and it was the perfect choice to discover not only the Red Square and its surroundings, but also some other off the beaten path sights. The itinerary is pretty much open, so you can decide what areas of the city you want to focus on.  ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
