Show up and Enjoy our Tour!

Just a few meters from the heart of the capital (Red Square and St. Basil’s Cathedral) is a completely different, mysterious Moscow, full of stories, legends and mystics. Our guide will show you how Moscow looked in the nineteenth century, you will ride a tram, hear the enchanting myths of ghosts and the criminal side of the city in the 19th century. On our Alternative Moscow tour you can feel the true culture and originality of Moscow. You will see lots of attractions such as:

The hill of St. John, a quiet place in the center of the city, imbued with a pre-revolutionary spirit

Khokhlovka, a haven of Russian hipsters and street art

Hitrovka, the most terrible district of Moscow in the nineteenth century: criminals, brothels and alcohol

Zamoskvorechye, beautiful streets and alleys full of legends and love stories

The meeting point:

1.Go to Kitay Gorod metro station (Purple Line (#7) or Orange Line (#6)).

2. Take the escalator up (not the stairs!)

3. Find the monument to Cyril and Methodius in the center of Slavyanskaya Square ( see how it looks ). Our guide will wait for you in front of this monument with a big red umbrella saying “Moscow Free tour”

4. Make sure you’ve taken the right exit: you should see 2 men with a cross and NOT a bell
