DescriptionLearn about the House of the Romanovs on this 4-hour sightseeing tour, and discover the story of the Russian tsars who ruled from 1613 to 1917. As 2013 marks the 400th anniversary of the start of the dynasty, now is the perfect time to look back at their lives. Go to the Chambers of the Romanovs near Red Square. Also known as the Palace of the Romanov Boyars, the palace was a indication of the family's status during the reign of Ivan the Terrible. Now a branch of the State Historical Museum, the interiors of the 17th century have been masterfully recreated. Continue to Kolomenskoe, a former royal estate several kilometers to the southeast of the city center. It was a favorite summer residence of tsar Alexei Mikhailovich, the second of the Romanovs. Inside a unique 2-story wooden edifice you will find a recreation of the original throne room, as well as living rooms, historic furniture, and stained glass windows. End at the Marfo-Mariinsky Convent (Convent of Martha and Mary), founded in 1908 by the last empress of Russia. In the grounds, you will see some photos of the last Romanovs, the well-preserved church of the Saviour, with a new icon of the Royal Martyrs, and a monument to St. Elizabeth, including the dedicatory inscription, “To the Grand Duchess with Penance.”
