About the tour

We will start this tour with one of the Seven Sisters, also known as Stalin Skyscrapers. Impressive building with many amazing stories behind it. Then will go to one of the most popular Russian pedestrian streets Arbat. Russian writers and poets were inspired by this street for centuries, some of them even lived there. One of them was Bulat Okudzhava who famously wrote "Oh Arbat, oh my Arbat! You are my religion". At the end of the 20th century, it turned into a place filled with artists and street musicians who have created a special atmosphere. One of the oldest streets in Moscow has seen it all from Ivan the Terrible's terror, Russian nobility to punks and rockers. These days it's one of the most popular tourist destinations.
