About the tour

A visit to Red Square is a must for all first-time visitors to Moscow as it has been Moscow's historic and cultural epicenter for centuries, holding everything from a medieval marketplace to Soviet military parades and rock concerts. The sights of Red Square can get crowded, especially in hot travel season, but our live virtual tour will allow you to learn the history, travellers' tips & tricks, the cultural and architectural background of such gems as magnificent St Basil's Cathedral, palace-looking GUM Department Store, onion-domed Orthodox Kazan Cathedral, the famous Lenin's mausoleum with no crowds! We invite you to travel to Moscow and explore the most important square not only in Moscow but in the whole country, from anywhere in the world!


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 is simply the best. Moscow is always a treat to 'visit' with her. I'm obsessed with Russian culture and history. I didn't know about Lenin's mausoleum so it was cool to see and learn more. Thanks Anna!
