The easiest and fastest way to get to-from Moscow and airports is to use express train Aeroexpress. Here I will give detailed information on how to locate the stations of Aeroexpress around city and how to buy tickets to this train.For all my guests especially those who are going to visit Moscow for a private tour during their layover here I always advise to use only Aeroexpress trains. The main purpose for it to avoid any traffic from-to airports and in 35-45 minutes you can get to the city center from the airport. I have to note that all the airports of Moscow are not in the city but away from it. Usually it can take you around 40-60 minutes by car to get there. But unpredictable traffic in Moscow can make your way to the airport from 30 minutes drive to 2-3 hours waiting in the traffic jams.
The Kremlin is one of the most popular request for my private tours in Moscow. I visit it almost every weekend with my guests. During the Victory Day on the 9th of May the Kremlin was closed. But it is opened today with some awesome news!
Today was opened the new park in the heart of Russia and Moscow - in the Kremlin. It was opened in the place where used to be The Kremlin Presidium, also known as Building 14. The scientists said that the building that was built in 1934 had no historical value and it was decided to demolished it in late 2015.
Summer is almost here in Moscow and I am glad that I am opening the new hot season for the private tours in Moscow already. There are so many requests at the moment for the tours but what is very unusual that a lot of my guests now want to see not only the places that are very common and touristic like the Kremlinor the Red Square etc. This summer I am ready to show my guests during the private tours the hidden gems of Moscow: like Krutitsy or Kuryanovo. I am glad that more of my guests now want to escape the touristic routs and discover the real Moscow - the one we are Muscovites enjoy.
During the private Kremlin tour with my guests we cannot miss one of the gorgeous square the Moscow Kremlin - Ivanovskaya Square. The name was given because of the Great Bell Tower of Ivan the Great (grandfather of Ivan the Terrible, who started unification process of Russia). During the guided tour of the beautiful ensemble of Ivanovskaya Square we visit not only the Bell Tower but also Tainitskiy (Secret) Gardens, Tsar Bell and Tsar Cannon. You can't miss these beautiful part of Moscow Kremlin if you visit the private Kremlin tour with me! Let me show and tell what we usually see there with my guests.
