Mother Russia has undergone a long history, the epicenter of which from XIV century was Moscow. And the deep history left the traces in the streets and squares and also in the minds and traditions of the locals.
This 3-hour walking tour takes you around major city attractions (Red Square, St Basil’s Cathedral, GUM department store, Tverskaya street) and off the tourist path. Learn about Russia’s medieval past, the Soviet history, and contemporary Moscow lifestyle as you experience the city beyond the icons.
