Moscow 2011: Moscow Day 2

Moscow 2011: Moscow Day 2


The first part of the day was spent touring the Kremlin proper (after making sure we looked up the proper directions to the ticket booth).  We got to the ticket booth 15 minutes before the 10 am opening and got tickets to both the Kremlin Grounds and the Armory.  The Armory tour consisted of a self-guided audio tour of Russia’s royal family gold, jewelry, precious stones, clothes, etc.   There was A LOT of gold and diamond and wish I could take some home with me J  No pictures allowed inside the tour though.

The main attractions of the Kremlin Grounds were the many churches and cathedrals that used to be used by royal family in the past.  Pictures of the churches:

The 2nd part of the day was spent at Arbat Street – a “tourist” street with many overpriced souvenir shops, bars and restaurants.
