Your full day tour of this magnificent city begins with a visit to Red Square. The focal point of the city, the square lies on the east wall of the Kremlin surrounded by a thick red fortress wall containing 20 towers, all at various intervals. Walk through the square to St. Basil's Cathedral, a colourful multi-domed complex built between 1555 and 1560. The cathedral's architects were supposedly blinded by Ivan the Terrible so that they could never recreate such splendor again. Continue on to the Novodevichy Convent, one of the finest examples of 16th and 17th century architecture in the city, it houses a museum of rare and ancient Russian art as well as Moscow's most prestigious cemetery. Here rest such eminent notables as Chekov, Prokofiev, Stanislavsky and Kruschev, to name a few. This afternoon visit the Tretyakov Gallery, which contains the best collections of Russian art in the world. Reopened in 1995 after a nine-year renovation, it houses an outstanding display of pre-revolutionary Russian art as well as an extensive collection of icons.
