Overview

Meet your tour guide at the lobby of your hotel or at any designated place in Moscow city center. Travel by metro to Gorky Park, accompanied by your guide, and, once you are there, start exploring the most famous park in Russia - Gorky Park. It gained its fame thanks to the immortal song “Wind of Change” by Scorpions and a novel “Gorky Park", both big hits in 1980s-1990s. Gorky Park still keeps its secrets from the Soviet times.

We will embark on a 2,5-hour river cruise with scenic views of Moscow from the pier nearby. Do not forget your camera - you will enjoy those iconic views through panoramic windows.

A local tour guide will explain you about all the sights on the way and will share some stories from the Soviet past. The cruise has a high-praised restaurant on board, so you can enjoy a full lunch or dinner or have a coffee with a dessert at your own expense in a comfortable atmosphere of the river cruise.
