The very first day, after settling in in our Airbnb, we couldn’t wait to go and see the famous Saint Basil’s Cathedral on the Red Square. And we were not disappointed. What an architectural gem!
Monday 17/07: Walking tour in Arbat district: mainly Arbat Street, Melnikov House and Pretchistenka Street .
Tuesday 18/07: We wanted to visit the Kremlin but we couldn’t really understand which one of the (long) queues we had to do. So we gave up and went to see other highlights: the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, the European Art Gallery of the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts, the interior of the Saint Basil’s Cathedral and finally the GUM shopping arcade.
