Over 25 years since the fall of the Soviet Union Moscow has developed into a busy, vibrant megalopolis, a true international capital, a city that never sleeps. Sightseeing tour of Moscow and visits to the key sights with your private Moscow guide will certainly enhance your connection to the Russian culture and knowledge of the Russian history, but it’s the Moscow by Night Tour that will make you experience complete and will reveal all Moscow’s beauty. According to the laws of the Government of Moscow, each main street and landmark building must have architectural lighting design. Driving and walking through Moscow’s streets and wide avenues at night, with all the lights on, is a truly special experience. If you have a night to spare in Moscow, we recommend taking Moscow by Night Tour.
Start with a walk through Red Square and capture stunningly beautiful views on camera, such as St. Basil’s Cathedral lit with floodlights, complete with the view of GUM and ruby-red backlit Kremlin stars against the background of the dark sky. Continue with a drive to Christ the Savior Cathedral with its huge domes of shimmering gold, see the monument to Peter the Great and the panorama of the Gorky Park and bridges across the Moscow River. Our next stop will be the observation Platform at the Sparrow Hills – and here you will see the city full of flickering lights spread in front of you. All Stalin Skyscrapers, including the University Building, have architectural light design, and they do look great at night.
The next stop will be the Ukraine Hotel and the White House of the Russian Government, complete with the panorama of New Arbat Street full of neon lights and colour changing light designs running across whole building blocks in symphony. Next we will drive through boulevards where people stroll enjoying themselves after a theater performance, past pedestrian streets, theaters and concert halls – and you will be amazed that even as late as 1am streets are full of people and cars. Moscow is, indeed, a city that never sleeps, and Moscow by Night Tour is always a great experience.
This private tour lasts up to 3 hours, and can be arranged on any day of the week.
Languages: English, German, French, Italian, Spanish and other foreign languages.
