About the tour

We invite you to dive into several epochs of the Russian history while exploring Alexander Gardens, the first public park in Moscow. The Park was opened in 1821 to celebrate Russia’s victory over Napoleon forces. "Your name is unknown, your deed is immortal"- while strolling down the Western Wall and Towers of Moscow Kremlin we will see the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier with an eternal flame. It contains the body of a soldier who fell during WW2 at the nearest point the Nazi forces intruded towards Moscow. We will see the Guard of Honour of the Kremlin Regiment, WW2 monument listing the names of Cities of Military Glory, an obelisk of the tercentenary of the Romanov dynasty. Walkways, flower gardens, fountains and monuments - in the very heart of Moscow, you won’t feel the hustle and bustle of the city, just silence and centuries-old history.


Meet your local guide

Anna

Anna is incredibly passionate about her job as a Moscow guide: every time she sees her guests catching their breath in a beautiful cathedral or smiling with a joy in the Red Square, she feels she's doing something right! As a true local, she knows that Moscow is an ever-changing metropolis and strives to communicate the diversity and contrasting characteristics of her native city - modern and ancient Moscow - at the same time. Anna loves showing Moscow from the perspective of a local - the striking and important history, beautiful architecture and modern lifestyle with hustle and bustle rhythm, authentic gastro-clusters and beautifully hidden lanes. We hope you can join Anna for an unforgettable tour of this wonderful city!

Anna has been guiding since Jan 2016

Anna tried very hard to show us the change of the guard, which I appreciated. But this route only saw very few sights. I suggested to re-design the route so we can see more of Moscow.
