The 2013 Miss Universe contestants stepped out of their hotel rooms in Moscow to take in some fresh air ahead of the pageant's finals.

Letting their hair down, the contestants hit the streets of the Russian capital, visiting the famous attractions of the city.

The contestants, wearing their official sashays, visited Moscow's Bolshoi Theatre and St Basil's Cathedral and took a walking tour of the Red Square.

As a warm-up session before the pageant begins, the Miss Universe contestants seemed to enjoy every bit of their outing. The beauty queens posed for photos as well as took their selfies against the backdrop of historic spots of Russia. The sightseeing tour also gave them a chance to bond with each other.

After touring Moscow over the weekend, the contestants walked the ramp at Tony Ward Fashion Show and Mercedes Benz Fashion Week and partied hard at the Rose Bar.
