What awaits you

Secrets of Muscovites Hundreds of men daily rushed here - to Grachevka, to the local “red light district”. Here it was easy to have fun with ladies with obscene manners and playful eyes, frivolous "widows" in mourning attire, campy schoolgirls looking for easy money, and country women. Economy-class brothels coexisted with elite ones, and in taverns there was no end to clients. And all this is completely legal! How did it happen in tsarist Russia? We will reveal the secrets of the courtyards-wells and alleys of Sretenka, talk about life with a "yellow ticket" and the habitués of brothel houses and recall the literary works born on these streets

Kaleidoscope of metropolitan life The guide will tell you what was originally hung out instead of a red lantern as a symbol of "profession", who was the head of the famous gang "Black Cat", what prices existed in the brothels of that time and where the terrorist Karakozov was preparing his assassination attempt on Emperor Alexander II. And besides, how Aleksandra Kollontai proposed to solve demographic problems and what kind of PR move was invented by the merchant Pyotr Sysoev to advertise his craft.
