Medieval Moscow Walking Tour

join!

24.04.2021

You have walked around the center of Moscow so many times, haven’t you? But can you tell us in which building the first pharmacy was located? Where were the first Russian books published? And where can you find the first higher education establishment in Russia?
 

Romanov boyars chambers and Znamensky Monastery
Romanov boyars chambers and Znamensky Monastery
We’ll discover them while walking through Kitay-gorod, one of the oldest historic districts of Moscow. Its streets and quiet lanes are an open-air museum of medieval architecture. Curious stories and architectural monuments will help us to immerse ourselves in the Moscow antiquity. Are you curious to learn about the most prominent boyar families who owned these lands? Would you like to see how the architecture of the streets changed with the appearance of the first Russian entrepreneurs?
 

Birzhevaya Square, Moscow
Birzhevaya Square, Moscow
We’ll walk along Red Square, look at the walls and towers of the Kremlin, see the ancient chimes and medieval cathedrals. We’ll pass GUM, turn onto the oldest Nikolskaya Street and make stops at the most important historical buildings. We’ll get through the lanes to Ilinka Street with its Exchange Square and monumental office buildings of the early 20th century, and then, passing along the Old Merchant Court, we’ll come to Varvarka Street. 
 

Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary at the Chizhevsky Compound

Many monuments of Kitay-gorod did not survive the Soviet era. But we will be able to hear a lot of fascinating stories about buildings, people, events, and it’s exactly what makes the tour so exciting!
