You can spend your second day in Moscow as it suits you best - walk along the old streets, visit the pretentious boutiques on the central avenues, or choose one of the additional excursions around Moscow in our catalog.
Today we will leave Moscow for the former luxurious capital of Russia - the city of St. Petersburg.
