What awaits you
Traditions of magic in the ancient city Together we will plunge into the past - but without dates and architectural subtleties. My story will be dedicated to our favorite holidays. Let's start with the era of Peter the Great, when they began to install and decorate Christmas trees. You will find out why this tradition was forgotten and who revived it. I will help you to feel like residents of pre-revolutionary New Year's Moscow: I will tell you where the Christmas tree markets were located, how they prepared for the holidays and noted what was impossible to put on the Christmas table and where Muscovites gathered for winter fun - from ice skating to fairs
The most elegant streets and squares Of course, we will walk through the heart of Moscow. The exact route may vary depending on the situation in the city and your interests, but it will definitely cover those corners of the capital that shine the brightest. These are Teatralnaya, Manezhnaya and Krasnaya squares, Nikolskaya and Varvarka streets. You will see the majestic Bolshoi Theater, the palace buildings GUM and TSUM, the Historical Museum, the colorful St. Basil's Cathedral, the new Zaryadye Park and many other attractions.
