Hello!
Yes! Saturday and Sunday are full days.
Of course you should see such sightseeing as Arbat and Izmailovo=)
Hello,

I advise you to visit Kremlin (if you havent been there yet) and the area around it + Red Sqaure, Tsaricino or Kolomenskoe Parks + New Maiden's Convent and the area. Also you may go to the Sparrow (Vorobievy) Hills from where you will see all the city. If you have a time left after that you may take a boat trip down the Moscow River :-)
can be guide for u for some days or hour...me or my bro - u ll ve great time:))

I would like to recommend to look around the Boulevard Ring. It's a picturesque Old Moscow.

Muscovites love the parks, especially now, when the weather is so great! There is a fabulous park around the ЦДХ (TzeDeKha) - The Central House of the Painter. You will see many interesting sculptures in the park, and the park itself is quite unique. There are a few places where you could have a drink and a snack in the park, as well as a Japanese restaurant and a cafeteria inside the building. The "house" itself is a massive structure with many exhibits to see, some things are available for purchase, as well as souvenirs made by local artists. Recommend!
There is another nice park on Lubianka. Located near the metro Lubianka as well as Kuznetsky Most. Great place to hang out. There is a nice Chinese restaurant "Chi" there, it's clean, cozy, and really good. Also you might want to go the national park, called Vorobiovy Gory, the view is breathtaking, you see Moscow in a diferent way, you feel the expance, which will remain as a beautiful picture in your memory. If these sounds tempting, I will be happy to provide you with the addresses. Or if you have other questions do ask. I guess it's important to know where you are staying, as far as the location, and what you interests are to be more of help. Enjoy!
you should go to kremlin .there you can find some autobus tour of moscow .you can sail in the moscow river on boat.places to be visited kremlin,vorobey gore,victory park,park kulturi,vdnk,ostankino tv tower.borodinski museum.arbat.bagrationski most.ant lot other places which you cant cover in two days.wish you happy journey.
I would like to recommened you visit Red Square,Mausoleum,Arbat,Vorobyevy Gory.
Take a bus excursion around sity center, you can find buses near Leningrad railway station.
In 2 hours you will get an impresion and save a lot of time and forces. And in the evening go to the theatre (any!). It will be a correct picture of Russian Capital.
The Kremlin, Bolshou theatre, Arbat, Novodevichy Monastery.
You can go to Pushkin's museum. Last year i visited Moscow, spent there more than 4 hours and didn't manage to look at everything as I had my flight in the evening. So I promissed myself to come back again to have the whole day in this amazing place!
I think Kremlin of course, and also Tretyakov gallery. And Pushkin museum. Its great, and Tsaritsino park is wonderful place. Dont advise to go VDNH. Its like market. Its better if you buy the ticket to Bolshoy theatre and go to see unforgetable Russian ballet. In the evening visit the popular russian restaurant with traditional kitchen for example Korchma - this is mixed kitchen - Ukrainen and Russian. Its very tasty)))
I suppose that Lana named the must-see places in Moscow, regarding your lack of time.
Once I asked localytes here which place about Moscow they love most of all and answers were the following: Red Square; Gum and the surrounding area; Alexandrovsky Park; Old Moscow - Arbat, Chistye Prudy; Vorobiyovy (Sparrot) Hills; Pushkinskaya Embankment from Park Kultury to Vorobyevy Gory and Neskuchny sad; Parks: Kolomenskoe, Arkhangelskoe, Tsaritsyno - I totally agree these are worth of seeing and you can work out a perfect route of these places. I add from myself a Tretyakov Gallery (if you enjoy art). For modern art - visit Garage excibition.
Bon voyage!

But i am glad that you would a never-forgettable experience added to the former, if any! To start from:
