A four-night Moscow stay with cultural excursions, including a Kremlin visit, Tretyakov Gallery, Gorki Leninskie and more - with breakfast and all travel

Discover the wonders of a wintry Moscow with a four-night trip that comes complete with cultural excursions. Upon arrival, you'll have to time to unwind at leisure before kick-starting things the next day, with a trip to Tretyakov Gallery - home to the largest and most impressive collection of Russian fine art.

The next day, you'll head off to Gorki Leninskie, which was once a retreat for Muscovite noblemen, before later being nationalised under the Soviet government and then used by Lenin in his later years. In the afternoon, you'll enjoy a photo-stop tour, taking in the Red Square, the Sofiiskaya Malecon, the panoramic view of the hills of Vorobyevy and the 'seven sisters' - Soviet skyscrapers built by Stalin.

Your third full day will be spent discovering the Kremlin and its cathedrals, where you'll see the majestic Arsenal, the Senate, Congress Palace, the Grand Kremlin Palace, the Czar's Canyon and the cathedrals of the Archangel Michael of the Twelve Apostles and the Assumption. In the afternoon, you'll visit the impressive Moscow Metro stations and take a walking tour of Arbat Street.
