About the tour

Did you know that Moscow has more than one Kremlin? Many tourists compare it to Disneyland while it still has Russian charm. By the way, this Kremlin was shot in a Hollywood movie! Izmailovo Kremlin will give you a taste of ancient Russia and traditional Russian architecture. Today Izmailovo Kremlin is mainly known as a tourist-magnet market. You will get to see dozens of stalls that offer not only Russian dolls and vodka but also some really unique products that certainly represent Russian culture. Learn what are the best souvenirs to get in Moscow. Moreover, get to know about unusual museums, Russian food, a wooden church, and interesting decorations.

Tanya is full of personality and the tour to thr market was enjoyable, Found it a bit annoying to be asked quiz questions about the sites as would prefer to just hear the facts about the place from the guide and concentrate on the history

An interesting and enjoyable tour through a less well known part of Moscow (at least for tourists) with views of a different style of architecture from the more famous areas. Traditional Russian architecture with colourful archways, a wooden church and delightful market with local handcrafts and food including the traditional Russian doll.

Tanya was very knowledgeable and eager to share. My only recommendation would be to not move the camera quite so fast and to hold for 8-10 seconds for photos. I had no idea the marketplace was only 20 years old! That shocked me.
