Unusual tourist attractions
The Kremlin is always the first thing to see in Moscow. Earlier, there was only one route available for visitors to the Kremlin. It includes __visiting the museums of the inner area__ with the entrance to Alexandrovsky Garden. Since the end of 2016, tourists have another option to access the Kremlin. The starting point is at Spasskaya Tower in Red Square. The new route features archaeological discoveries, displaying the basements of the demolished monasteries, __dating back to the 14th and 16th centuries__, as well as the Maly Nikolaevsky Royal Palace.
Boat cruises are very popular in Moscow, __and river transportation season never stops__. Many enclosed and heated boats with panoramic windows and ice-breaking equipment can be found on the Moscow River. On their way tourists will see the city sights such as Stalin’s skyscrapers and the Kremlin.
For the last five years a lot of Moscow streets have become pedestrian zones. The city authorities ordered the construction of cosy European-style promenades with street lamps, benches and flower beds, __which were designed for everyone to enjoy__.
Russians are the greatest fans of winter, __which is from the end of November__ to the beginning of March.

At the end of 2016 the new skating-rink started operating on the roof of Moscow City’s 85-floor OKO tower at a height of 354 metres. The view is breathtaking.
