How to Spend 2 Days in Moscow

How to Spend 2 Days in Moscow

A two-day trip to Moscow offers the chance to see the most important sites of the Russian capital and also get a sense of the political history that has shaped it. From exploring a former emperor’s palace to following in the KGB’s footsteps, here’s how to spend two days in Moscow.

Day 1: Explore the City and Its Past

**Morning:**Start your first day with a walking tour of Moscow’s most important landmarks, including Red Square, St. Basil’s Cathedral, the Kremlin, and the Bolshoi building. Alternatively, a hop-on hop-off bus tour allows you to create a wider-ranging itinerary, spending as long as you wish at each stop.

**Afternoon:**Go underground to discover some of Moscow’s most beautiful art spaces on a guided tour of the city’s Metro stations. A legacy of an ambitious architectural project of the Soviet era, the stations are opulently decked out with chandeliers, mosaics, stained glass, and sculptures.

**Night:**Get a taste of local Muscovite life on a nightlife tour in one of Moscow’s hippest districts. You can make new friends, drink Russian liquor, and taste typical snacks as your guide takes you to some of the city’s buzziest hotspots and to locals’ favorite watering holes. 

Day 2: Discover Different Perspectives

**Morning:**Delve into the opulent depths of the Kremlin, the former residence of Russian emperors, on a guided tour of the building’s architectural highlights. If you book a tour with priority access, you can avoid the lines by entering at the earliest admission time.

**Afternoon:**See Moscow from a different perspective with an afternoon cruise on the Moskva River that offers views of the Kremlin, Novodevichy Convent, Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, and Moscow State University—all without the hassle of navigating the crowds. Tours often include hot drinks and snacks.

**Night:**Unravel myths and misperceptions as you learn about the political history of Moscow’s Soviet era on a guided tour to landmarks associated with this turbulent era, including the former KGB building, a memorial to Soviet labor camp prisoners, and Revolution Square, the site of the 1917 Bolshevik revolution.
