On this six-day vacation from Gate 1 Travel, you can explore Moscow at your leisure, visiting many of the Russian capital’s most famous landmarks such as the Kremlin and St. Basil’s Cathedral. Your hotel, which sits in a quiet neighborhood a few miles from the center of the city, is a short walk from the subway system, making it easy to get around town. A number of optional tours are available for an additional fee.
The vacation includes:
Round-trip airfare from New York (flight time is about 10 hours)
The hotel overlooks a lush expanse of public parkland in southern Moscow, just 10 miles from downtown. Crossed with wide, tree-lined paths, the park is a nice spot to soak up some fresh air on a leisurely stroll. Inside the hotel, you’ll find murals of dense forests and rocky lakeshores in the lobby and fitness center, creating a tranquil atmosphere that’s still within easy access of Moscow’s busy attractions.
Steps from public transportation. A five-minute walk from Katerina Park will bring you to the Prazhskaya metro station, where trains will zip you into the center of the city in less than an hour. That’s where you can visit Moscow’s most famous attractions, including St. Basil’s Cathedral—a colorful landmark built in the 16th century—and the Kremlin. Set on the banks of the Moskva River, this historic fortress contains a number of lavish cathedrals and palaces, many of which are open to visitors.
Scandinavian and Russian cuisine served onsite. Back at the hotel, Katerina Park Restaurant prepares tasty dishes such as fresh Scandinavian salmon. In the morning, the restaurant sets out a complimentary breakfast buffet with pastries, cereal and milk, and hot dishes.
Spacious rooms with city views. Medium guest rooms comfortably accommodate two guests on one king or two twin beds. All units include free WiFi, a mini bar stocked with complimentary snacks and beverages, and sweeping views of the city.
