What awaits you
Pre-revolutionary and Soviet past of Moscow The route of our walk is designed in such a way that you will see, at times inconspicuous, buildings associated with historical events and personalities.

You will also see the building where the last leaders of the Stalinist NKVD lived. You will learn how the outbreak of the First World War affected the situation of foreigners in Moscow. You will see the house in which the famous artist Levitan spent the last 8 years of his life and wrote his main works. And also see the apartment house of the Morozovs' daughter, next to which there was a famous shelter, which was visited by Leo Tolstoy
Scientific institutions and religious buildings You will see where the technology of mummification of the body of Lenin and other communist leaders was developed. Near the Institute of the Brain, you will hear the history of its creation and find out which famous personalities became the objects of the Institute's research.
