    With this bus-and-boat combination ticket, you’ll really be able to see Moscow from all angles. The bus tour starts at Moscow’s renowned Red Square which is home to the 16th-century St. Basil's Cathedral, one of the most famous pieces of architecture in the world, plus the constructivist pyramid of Lenin's Mausoleum. Travel over Bolshoy Moskvoretsky Bridge, a concrete arch structure which spans the Moscow River and connects the Red Square and Bolshaya Ordynka Street of Zamoskvorechye. Admire the unmistakable red brick factory of Red October which is situated on Bolotny Island in the middle of the Moscow River and has become an architectural icon.

    Take the bus tour to the Udarnik Movie Theater, a monument to Russian constructivism, the only cinema in Russia with a telescopic opening roof, which has never actually operated. Hop off and admire the world famous Kremlin, the historic fortified complex at the heart of Moscow, which overlooks the Moskva River, Saint Basil's Cathedral and Red Square.

    To take the river cruise, just meet us at the starting point at Tretyakov and it's all aboard the boat we go! The Moscow's Vodootvodny canal was built in the late 18th century along the central bend of the Moskva River near the Kremlin and is about 4km long. While traveling through the canal you'll be able to see the stunning engineering of Maly Kamenny bridge, which was built out of stone in 1938. If you love bridges then we've got all sorts in store for you!

    We'll also pass under both the First and Second sluice bridges, the small Krasnokholmsky bridge, the Zverev bridge, Commissariat bridge and even Sadovnichesky bridge! There's no shortage of interesting landmarks along the Vodootvodny canal either. You'll pass some of the most fascinating architectural monuments of the past, including the oldest hydro-electric power station in Moscow. Sailing along Yakimanskaya embankment you'll see the old textile factory, Golutvino, on the Prechistenskaya embankment. Further along on the Sofiyskaya embankment you'll come across the wonderfully preserved bell tower of St. Sophia's Cathedral.
