Walking in the Kremlin

by Olga on February 13, 2016

Ursula: My walking capability is approx. one mile. Would that be enough to walk inside of the Kremlin? Thank you

Ursula, the main Kremlin itinerary I suppose is not less than 1 mile (approx. 1 mile). Moreover there will be a possibility to take a sit in the Assumption cathedral. What seems to me even more important it is the organization of the entrance and purchasing the tickets before the tour, that require time and effort.  So, somebody should assist you. All the tourists enter the Kremlin by a staircase. On special occasions it is possible to escape it, if to contact the stuff. In this case you will enter from above.

Moscow Kremlin guided tours

by Olga on October 12, 2014

Dear friends, if you are interested in a guided tour with me, please, do not purchase online Kremlin tickets before contacting me. They should be purchased by me and the guide’s name should be printed on the ticket. When you buy them, I can’t guide you.

I was asked by Sophie:

Olga, the Viking cruise will be docked at the Moscow Northern River Boat Station, Leningradsky Prospekt, Khimki. Do you know how long will it take to get to the Armory if we take the subway? We heard there is a subway, but not sure where it is.  Will appreciate any help you can give us.

 

It will take you about 20 minutes walk from the pier to the metro station Rechnoy vokzal and 25 minutes by the green metro line to the station Teatralnaya, which is located in the city centre.

 

Your route from the river boat terminal to the metro station Rechnoy vokzal:

Faberge Easter egg, 1891

by Olga on May 5, 2013

The egg “Memory of Azov” is the only one in the collection of the Moscow Kremlin Museums, commissioned by Emperor Alexander III. It was presented to his wife, Maria Fyodorovna, on Easter in 1891 and dedicated to the journey of Tsarevich Nicholas and his brother George to the East aboard the cruiser “Memory of Azov” (Pamiat Azova). The itinerary included Greece, Egypt, India, China, and Japan. The Easter egg is made of heliotrope (a kind of jasper) and decorated with gold and diamonds in the rococo style. The surprise within is a miniature gold and platinum replica of the Imperial cruiser, fixed on a piece of aquamarine representing the water.
