Meet your guide at Theatre Square in front of the main building of the Bolshoi Theatre and start your journey in time to the Middle Ages on this 2–hour walking tour within the ancient city walls. See how the central area of the city has changed dramatically since the Russian revolution, and let your guide ensure that you uncover the hidden gems of Medieval Moscow.

Head through the gates of the Kitay-Gorod City Wall and find yourself on one of the three oldest streets of Moscow, the centre of education and enlightenment.

In the winding side streets, see the church where Ivan the Terrible, the first Russian tsar, married for the sixth time. Hear all the stories and legends that are connected to his sinister figure.

Next, head through the old commercial centre of Moscow towards Varvarka Street, where the Romanovs lived before they rose to power. Explore the destinies of the damned, the saints, the nobles and the rebels at Varvarka Street ,with its ancient architecture and fascinating history. Finish your tour on the Red Square, in the shadow of Moscow's finest architectural masterpiece, St. Basil Cathedral.
