About the tour

Our journey starts on Theatre Square, one of the central squares of Moscow around the Kremlin. We will stroll along The Bolshoi Theatre, world-famous ballet and opera house, Maly Theatre where drama is performed, the grand Art-Nouveau "Metropol" hotel, the gray Gothic castle rising above the Maly Theater which is used to be The Muir and Merrilees Store and now houses TSUM, on of the best high-end department stores in Moscow. Our next stop is Kuznetsky Bridge - the street of fashion, cafes, restaurants with the spirit of the pre-revolution old Moscow and two-storey mansions. We will find the traces of the ancient Neglinnaya River, which used to flow openly across the very centre of Moscow and was encapsulated in an underground pipe in the 19th century. Feel the spirit of the old Moscow and get inspired by the history of the Rusian ballet, opera, drama theatre and architecture.

Meet your local guide


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
