Holiday Special – Magical Red Square
8 December 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm
Christmas and New Year is one of the best times to visit Moscow. We invite you to walk through this luminous city to feel the magic of a Russian winter because at this time of the year Moscow turns into a snowy wonderland.
You will learn about the history of New Year and Christmas celebrations in Russia and uncover why Russians celebrate Christmas in January but exchange presents on New Year’s night. We will even get to talk about festive Russian food! All while discovering the magical Red Square.
On this tour, you’ll get to experience the cultural and architectural background of such gems as the magnificent St Basil’s Cathedral, GUM Department Store, onion-domed Orthodox Kazan Cathedral, and Lenin’s mausoleum, all lit up with magical Christmas lights.
Make sure you have a hot holiday drink with you – Moscow gets cold this time of year!
