What to expect
  • Meet your guide at Theatre Square in front of the main building of the Bolshoi Theatre and start your journey in time to the Middle Ages. It is a 2-hour walking tour within the ancient city walls. This very central area 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 centre 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 centre 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.

Casi no sabíamos nada de Rusia, ni de su historia, ni de la cultura. Y ¡que sorpresa! De hecho, fue muy interesante aprender más cosas, y la chica q trabajaba de nuestra guía era tan chula! Tengo muchas ganas de volver a visitar Moscú y pasar más tiempo por aqui.
