Walking tour to the two most important museums in Moscow – the Diamond Fund and the Armory Chamber, supplemented by a tour of Red Square and the Alexander Garden.

Excursion “Treasures of the Kremlin: Diamond Fund, Armory, Red Square” will begin in the heart of Moscow with a fascinating walking tour “Near the ancient walls of the Kremlin.” We will start from Red Square, admire its grandeur and beauty, feel its atmosphere and special energy. Then continue the tour in the Alexander Garden, through the centuries we will plunge into history and see the monuments of three centuries.

The pedestrian part in the center of Moscow will end at the Borovitsky gates of the Kremlin, from where we will continue our excursion by visiting the two most important museums of the capital: the Diamond Fund and the Armory Chamber.

The Diamond Fund of the Moscow Kremlin is unique, priceless and, perhaps, the most inaccessible museum in Russia. Just imagine, only in two halls of the museum are the masterpieces of the world’s jewelry art, symbols of autocracy and family jewelry of the imperial family, rare gems and a map of Russia lined with loose diamonds, as well as stunning nuggets of gold and platinum.

The Armory Chamber of the Moscow Kremlin is the most famous museum-treasure of Russia. The most ancient state regalia are collected in the halls of the museum. – The Monomakh hat is kept here, as well as the ceremonial royal clothes and royal thrones, among them the unique double silver throne of the princes Peter and Ivan Alekseevich, the ceremonial arms and the unique collection of Easter eggs by Carl Faberge. A visit to the Armory Chamber takes place with an audio guide.
