What awaits you
Garden City, "Trash" or an open-air museum? As soon as the fire of the revolution broke out, a unique cooperative village "Sokol" emerged between the clear field and Serebryany Bor, which became a center of attraction for artists, scientists and writers of the 20th century. Outstanding engineers and architects worked on the appearance of the garden city, which made Sokol look like a museum of architectural contrasts. Among the Red Book trees and lush bushes, we will consider Russian fairytale towers, constructivist mansions and typical pre-revolutionary dachas. We will find our libraries, shops, a maternity hospital and even a club in the village. And let's also figure out why those who remained outside the cozy paradise for the Soviet intelligentsia gladly called the Falcon "Trash"
Falcon in faces and stories Let's talk about the iconic personalities who settled in the "artist's village", and a lot of them gathered in Sokol. You will learn about the creator of the first Russian assault rifle, Fedorov, who worked under the heading "secret" and lived, as it was believed, in house number 9 (but we will get to the truth). Let's take a look at the house of the artist Gerasimov, which resembles a medieval fortress with thick walls and merlons. Let's follow in the footsteps of the actor Rolan Bykov and get acquainted with the three brainchilds of the architect-designer Markovkin, which he built for himself in Sokol.
The excursion for you will be led by one of the guides of our team of professionals and true Moscow scholars.
