After breakfast at the hotel get ready to start our program with the excursion to 2 interesting sights: Victory Park and the Borodino Battle Museum. The memorial Victory Park with the Museum of the Great Patriotic War 1941-1945 was opened on May 9, 1995 to the 50th anniversary of the Victory. On its territory, you may see the Victory Monument, the Central Museum of the Great Patriotic War, the Church of St. George the Victorious, the memorial synagogue, an exhibition of military equipment in the open air.
The exposition of the panoramic museum “Borodino Battle” is entirely devoted to the Patriotic War of 1812. Battle paintings, engravings, and sculptures, portraits of war heroes coexist in the halls of the museum with book rarities, weapons, samples of uniforms, and household items. The central exhibit of the museum is the artistic panorama “Borodino”.
After lunch in the local restaurant, we are going to have a guided excursion to the Moscow Metro. It is not just a public transport; it is a real underground architectural monument of world significance. The construction went under the motto “Let’s create a palace for the people!” and indeed today many stations of the Moscow metro are more reminiscent of majestic museum halls.
In the afternoon we will walk across the Zaryadye Park – the modern and young park near Red Square.
In the evening get ready for a traditional Russian dinner at a restaurant “Matreshka”. You will have a chance to taste traditional Russian cuisine, like pelmeni, Olivie salad, shchi, and, also, different pies and pancakes. Feel the Russian hospitality in this restaurant.
