New Basmannaya appeared in the 17th century but was mostly associated with Peter the Great time. At that time it was the main way to "German" Quarters  which was populated by foreigners from Western Europe. During the tour we’ll talk about Peter the Great as well as great intellectuals from the 18th and 19th century.

Did you know that there’s a church designed by Peter the Great? Are you curious to find an academy where Khrushev and Stalin’s wife used to study? Where is the oldest house outside the Garden Ring? Are you keen on visiting a typical apartment of Stalin’s Seven Sisters?

A tour features a 1,5 hour walk, please make sure to prepare comfortable and warm clothes.
