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.
