Approx. 120 Minutes
A short walk from Red square and St. Basil's cathedral and you will find yourself in a neighborhood full of mystery, urban legends and myths.
You will see how Moscow looked like in the nineteenth century, take a ride on a historic tram and listen to amazing stories about ghosts, famous criminals and eccentric merchants. If you want to understand the local culture, then experience it yourself. Moscow off the beaten track is one of the best ways to do it. You will see:
St. John's hill, a quiet place in the city center with a pre-revolutionary spirit
Khokhlovka, Russian hipsters and street art
Khitrovka, the most terrifying neighborhood of Moscow in the nineteenth century: criminals, brothels and alcohol
Zamoskvorechie, beautiful streets and lanes full of legends and love stories.
Starting time: 18:30
