What to expect

For more than 70 years Moscow was the capital of the immense Soviet empire. The streets of the city still contain remnants of the communist regime, Cold War and the fearsome Soviet strongholds that still guard Russia's young democracy.

On the Communist Moscow walking tour, you will see the infamous headquarters of the KGB also known as Lubyanka, Revolution Square and the city's last Karl Marx monument, the Bolshoi theatre and the USSR's first McDonalds.

Discover hidden chapters of the Soviet history from the Great October Revolution and Perestroika to Lenin and Gorbachev. Your expert guide will discuss the Great Terror under Stalin, the GULAG system, the secret KGB prison and day-to-day life for citizens of the Soviet Union.

During your Communist Moscow walking tour you'll see:

  • Ex-KGB Headquarters on Lubyanka
  • Solovetsky Stone, a memorial to the victims of political repression
  • Bolshoi Theatre
  • The Gulag Museum (without visiting)
  • Tverskaya St, the main street of the city
