What to expect

The central part of the city has changed dramatically since the Russian revolution but the local guide will make sure that you notice and explore the hidden gems of medieval Moscow. You will go through the gates of the Kitay-Gorod city wall and find yourself on one of the three oldest streets of Moscow, the center of education and enlightenment. The guide will show you where chroniclers worked and tell you about their rivalry with the first book printers.
In the winding side streets, you will see the church where Ivan the Terrible, the first Russian tsar, got married for the sixth time - and you will hear all the stories and legends, that are connected to his sinister figure. Next, the tour goes through the old commercial center of Moscow towards Varvarka street where the Romanovs lived before they rose to power. Varvarka street with its ancient architecture and fascinating history takes time to explore as here the destinies of the damned, the saints, the nobles and the rebels are tangled together. The tour finishes on the Red Square, in the shadow of Moscow's finest architectural masterpiece, St.Basil´s Cathedral.
