Scene of grand military parades during the Soviet era, Red Square is Moscow’s bustling centre. Visitors here can admire Lenin’s tomb where he has lain in state in a colourful mausoleum since his death in 1924. Red Square is also home to the whimsical, onion-domed St Basil’s Cathedral -an amazing feat of religious architecture commissioned by Ivan the Terrible in 1552 and now housing a museum.
Enjoy the spectacle of this great Moscow institution. Students can marvel at Russian circus traditions from clowning to juggling, acrobatics, contortion, and animal acts – especially those involving bears. The acts are notably different in style from Western circuses, being more dance-oriented, holding more narrative and focused on Eastern European culture.
Situated 65 metres underground in the centre of Moscow, Bunker 42 contains an interactive museum, conference hall, restaurant and a banquet hall. In the 60’s Bunker-42 was completely equipped with food, fuel, air regeneration, vent filter systems and a water supply system – everything required in case of a nuclear attack.

Take a guided tour of Moscow’s sprawling Metro system, an attraction in its own right. Each station was conceived by a different designer, using bronze, crystal and mosaic. The Metro is a state-owned enterprise. Its total length is 312.9km and consists of 12 lines, which are coded by colour, and 188 stations. The average daily passenger traffic is 7m people.
This historic Moscow street has existed since at least the 15th century. Originally part of an important trade route, it was home to a large number of craftsmen. In the 19th and early 20th centuries it was a prestigious address where petty nobility, artists, and academics lived. In the Soviet period, it was the home of many high-ranking government officials.
An organised evening out provides a great chance to eat, dance and be merry. Student groups can try the local food whilst watching a traditional Russian dance and listening to typical live music.
