2. Kuznetsky Most: from the Moscow’s old settlement to the center of luxury and fashion
Kuznetsky Most is one of the oldest streets of Moscow, and it was a center of luxury life of the noble families, famous companies, and fashion houses in the past. Meanwhile even now – in the present days of changes – this street didn’t lose its old charm, and builds genuinely the “bridge” to the world of forgotten, but such a captivating fleur of the pre-revolutionary past. 
I invite you to experience the spirit of the good, heartwarming, and mystical stories of Kuznetsky Most.

3. The known and unknown Tverskaya street.
Tverskaya street is one of the oldest streets of Moscow and turned out to have a complicated history. It was constantly renamed, broadened, and rebuilt. It didn’t lose its attractiveness and flavor though, and all buildings here are steeped in history. It’s impossible to grasp the immensity, but we will try to catch the most interesting stories and also open something new and unexpected. Where are the chambers of the 17th century still located? Where the bell that rings every hour, but nobody is hearing it? Where is the sweetest house? All of these questions we will answer on our excursion.

4. Arbat is the soul of Moscow
The Old Arbat street … its phenomenon is definitely unique. Arbat is not the biggest or the oldest street of our city. But in the old times as well as nowadays it draws attention and attracts by its incomparable charm. Arbat is the real Russian history which bounds hundreds of people who impacted the capital. Their wonderful stories will be told during our Arbat trip. Where did “Robin Hood” from the law live? Where was the house with ghosts? Where were the most precise predictions made, and where was the well known Bulgakov’s “Satan Spring Ball” launched?

5. Myasnitskaya Street
Myasnitskaya Street: from the butchers’ settlement to the splendor of noble estates. Myasnitskaya Street can be seen as a vivid symbol of Moscow’s growth story. The little butchers settlement in its past, it got the second birth during the reign of Peter I when the lavish estates of the most prominent noble families were built. From those days to present days this street is a “necklace” of very different styles, epochs, and lives. On our excursion we will discuss the famous Russian classics, take a look at the beautiful facades of the XVIII-XIX century houses, know a mystical story of one funny resident, and certainly feel the vibe of the modern time.

6. “Residents of the old Moscow” (on the Patriarch’s Ponds)
“Residents of the old Moscow” (on the Patriarch’s Ponds). The Moscow’s center is multifaceted. On the one side are noises, hustle and bustle of the contemporary Tverskaya street, on the other quite alley allure guests with their old fashion vibe and remember the wooden pre-fire Moscow. Here Marina Tsvetaeva – the famous poet of the Silver Age of the literature – was born. The prominent architects Shekhtel and Goncharov created their masterpieces. Finally, Mikhail Bulgakov lived and gave a life to his well known masterwork “The Master and Margarita”. The stories of the past will be alive once more!

7. “Povarskaya street: deep into the centuries”
Povarskaya street is a “pearl” of the New Arbat street. Being the small district in the past, it became the street of the aristocracy and intelligence in the 19th century. Even today Povarskaya street is viewed as an “island” of the bygone ages. The street is undoubtedly magnificent and remarkable. Here is the church of the 17th century which was preserved even in the Soviet times. Povarskaya street was the place where Ivan Bunin began his new life as the immigrant. Sisters Gnesiny founded their famous Academy of music here. A “Quiz” with fabulous facades, the most quite ghost, and the spirit of Leo Tolstoy – all these gimmicks are waiting for us on the Povarskaya street.

8. “Petrovka, a heart of the capital: from the Teatralnaya Square to Strastnoy Boulevard”
Petrovka street didn’t change its name ever. There is something symbolical in that. From the slow times to dynamic of the modern ages this street continues to be a soul of the capital which bears its secrets and warmth of the past. We begin our journey on the second most photographed square of Moscow – the Teatralnaya Square where three theatres define its background. Then we will consistently get familiar with the main masterpieces of the architects Kazakov and Bovet. The Vysokopetrovsky Monastery as a central residence of Naryshkin Family, little churches with the precious religious treasures will be ahead.

9. “Zamoskvoretchye – a place of Muscovite merchant class”
I invite you to make a stroll in Zamoskvoretchye – through the main alleys of the former merchant town. From the noisy Pyatnitskaya street to the quiet Bolshaya Ordynka. They are so different and incomparable at first site, but preserve unique architecture and atmosphere of the old merchant Moscow. The old road to Ryazan began here. Rich merchants and patrons resided near Pyatnitskaya street ages ago. They defined a busy “nature” of the street: even now we can see shops and trading stores with their lustrous and colorful showcases. Ordynka is, on the contrary, the quietest and most comfortable streets of Moscow center. The street preserved its historical facades, and it is the reason to come here again and again. My excursion invites you to the fabulous spots of the very heart of Zamoskvoretchye. We will make a stop at Martha and Mary Convent to remember its founder, the great duchess Elizaveta Fyodorovna and her tragic life-story, at the modest museums of the well known Russian playwright Ostrovsky and artist Tropinin whose lives symbolize the whole 19th century and the vibe of Zamoskvoretchye district.

10. “Bolshaya Yakimanka street in the variety of hundred years”
It is unexpected, but Bolshaya Yakimanka street belongs to Zamoskvoretchye too. But unlike Pyatnitskaya street, here were big changes and rebuildings. Though the street keeps its own secrets, legends, and wonderful stories. Who were those women on the swamp right in the city center? Where is the family nest for the patrons Tretyakov and Ryabushinsky? Who is the most frequent guest from the past in the Igumnov House? Which church was build to the plan of Peter I? We will try to answer all these questions!

11. The ancient Kitay-Gorod and its streets
There are many surprising points in Kitay-Gorod – from the name to fast changeable history. At the crossroads of the centuries this district was a living place for craftsmen, aristocracy, big merchants, the center of banking and the law. Thus, I invite you to investigate how Kitay-Gorod has been changing through the years. We will be on Varvarka street and feel the rhythm of the past by visiting some of its magnificent churches, and immerse ourselves in the Romanov history which begins here. Then we continue our journey on the Old (Staraya) Square, speak about challenging times for Lubyanka street, and will end up on Nikolskaya street which was known as a center of Russian education by its book shops and the former Printing House.

12. From the God’s Temple to the Temple of art: Ostozhenka and Prechistenka streets
Prechistenka was paved in the 16th century as the main road to the Novodevichy Convent, and its importance is impossible to miss. This street was one of the most beautiful in the old times, nicknamed as “Saint Jermaine de Moscou”, with its luxury stone estates and chambers. There are many stories, lives, and secrets behind. Let’s make a little journey where we will be acquainted with the two sides of the Muscovite cultural life. The first one is the religious one which is well known by the tragic destiny of Christ the Savior Cathedral, and a quiet Zachatyevsky Monastery. The second side belongs to the art represented by the Museum of Fine Art, curious houses with their cozy facades, and lovely museum-estates of Ostozhenka and Prechistenka streets.
