Russia 1: Moscow and Intro to St. Petersburg

Russia  1: Moscow and Intro to St. Petersburg

This program offers an unforgettable "insider's" tour of Moscow and an introduction to St. Petersburg, formerly known as Leningrad. In Moscow we begin with one of the most recognized landmarks in Red Square, St. Basil's Cathedral, which was built in the 1550s by Ivan the Terrible. Lenin's Tomb is where the founder of the former Soviet State rests in a mausoleum designed by Alexei Shchusev in 1924. Next we explore the Kremlin, this 70-acre fortress includes palaces, armories, and churches, including Cathedral of the Assumption, Cathedral of the Annunciation, and Cathedral of Archangel Michael; then to Arbot Street, a heavily traveled pedestrian thoroughfare that was restored after WW II. In St. Petersburg we go on a whirlwind tour seeing first the Neva River, the main waterway, where Peter the Great founded the city in 1703; the baroque-styled Winter Palace, which was the main residence of the Russian Tsars; the State Hemitage Museum, Russia's most famous museum; and the Peter and Paul Fortress, the oldest building of the city. 03/09DE IJSCA 15 min.
