The journey begins from the metro station of Smolenskaya. From there you can go for a comfortable walk over the famous Arbat. It is a pedestrian zone. Also, there are many restaurants and shops to visit and to stopover for a coffee would be a great idea. Many street artists perform their art on the street and are a great source of entertainment.

Visit the Armoury Museum, which is one of the oldest museums and now it is home to the unique collection of Russian Diamond Fund. Further, you can visit the famous department store GUM with all its luxury stores. Try some ice-cream to refresh yourself and spend some time on the Red Square and visit the St. Basil Cathedral.
After spending some quality time in GUM, walk further to Nikolskaya Street which is another pedestrian street in the Kitay-Gorod of Moscow. Witness some amazing architecture and chill yourself up in restaurants & cafes at Nikolskaya Street.
