Double-Decker Sightseeing Buses in Moscow

Red double-decker buses appeared on the streets of Moscow at the end of August. They take standard routes around the historical center of the city. The project was created by a Spanish company City Sightseeing with assistance from the Moscow Committee for Tourism and Hotel Industry and Moscow Transport Department. The Spanish company is the biggest operator of double-decker tourist buses in the world. Moscow was the last European capital which did not have this service available for tourists in the past. The busses are equipped by the special audio system that offers excursions in 8 languages.


When we entered the bus, we received headphones and blankets, and took our seats. Even though I know Moscow very good, but I really enjoyed the trip and saw the city in a new way.

The hop-on, hop-off service allows you to tour Moscow at your own pace. The tour has English and Russian commentary and lasts 60 minutes. There are 18 stops around Moscow including the Kremlin, Red Square, St. Basil’s Cathedral, Bolshoi Theater, Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts, The Cathedral of Christ the Savior, Old Arbat walking street and much more.

Passengers can hop on and off the buses, which currently offer commentary in English and Russian, as many times as they like.
