Do this because
  • A new take on the typical spots
  • Taste a cheburek and find out why locals love them so much
  • Hear stories of how city sites have been influenced by soviet history
  • Retreat to a quiet secret spot away from the bustle of Moscow
  • Pushkinskaya Square, Red Square, and St. Basil’s Cathedral
What to expect

Start at Pushkinskaya Square, a main spot for locals to gather and meet. These “landmarks” all come from very different periods of Russian history, and convey a lot what was happening in the country during their eras.

Next visit a spot that’s popular for selling chebureks, deep-fried pastries filled with minced meat. Wash it down with a traditional Russian soft drink or tea, and find out why the locals love this place. This snack spot is rarely visited by tourists, so you’re getting the true taste of local life!

After our short snack stop, continue to a grocery store! Not just any grocery store, though — Eliseevsky is famous for luxurious, neo-baroque interiors.

From there, we’ll continue walking along Tverskaya Street, passing by some of Moscow’s main landmarks: the monument to the founder of the city and the governor’s house.

Next up, visit a Russian Orthodox Church, where we can light a candle and, if we’re lucky, listen to some beautiful choir songs while your guide shares a few personal stories. (Please note that if you wish to go inside the church, you must be wearing clothing that goes below your knees, and women must have a scarf to cover their head.)

And finally, the main highlight of Red Square is, of course, the 16th-century St. Basil’s Cathedral, with its bright and colourful domes — the classic Red Square scene! Get your cameras ready.
