In the evening at around 08:00 PM, we started off on a 2 hour night tour to Moscow City. During the journey we went through some of the most vibrant and popular areas of Moscow. We started off at 'Christ the Savior Cathedral' which is one of the symbols of Russia. After this, we crossed the river Moscow and witnessed the iconic red-brick "Red October" chocolate factory.In addition, we walked past the monument of Peter the Great - the Russian emperor on whose name the city of Saint Petersburg is named.Across the river we walked towards the Muzeon sculpture park, where the old statues of communist leaders were gathered. Most of the statues in Moscow are made of bronze - even the giant statue of Peter the Great.
