During the tour of the mosque we’ll have a chance to get to a panoramic platform to come to the level of its beautiful golden dome. The walk on the top is optional since you may only reach the area by foot.
 
Moscow Choral Synagogue

We continue our tour in the center of Moscow, close to the area where the Jews used to live in the past. We’ll visit the Choral Synagogue that recently celebrated its 100 year anniversary. It is a very impressive building, constructed by a renowned Moscow architect Roman Klein. Surprisingly, this synagogue was the only one that continued to operate throughout the Soviet years.
