“ Day 2 If the weather is snowy enough, get out of the city center to enjoy its exotic winter beauty. Kolomenskoye and Tsaritsyno estates are easily accessible by metro and have both natural and architectural things to see. There is also an indoors option for this day - the Tretyakov Gallery. A good guide can bring a lot more to the visit, but if your friends are experienced museum goers they can be good on their own. Note that the Gallery is closed on Monday. ”
