One of the world’s most exciting aviation shows – MAKS is Russia’s visiting card, a symbol of the great power of its aviation in the current millennium. Here you can experience the world’s aviation and space technology, past and future, and see the most up-to-date defence products of Russia and other countries, including aircraft, rockets, and the latest scientific research.

In the afternoon you will discover the interior of the Kremlin - the former residence of the Tsars and now the residence of the Russian president.

The service of the Guides and our Driver were good and vital to our enjoyment of the City of Moscow and to see as much as possible in the duration of our stay. Star City was interesting and the Technician who guided us around the facility was informative and polite. I would not hesitate to consider using Just Go Russia again as we would both like to return to Russia.....We thank you for assisting us through the duration of our booking
