Full description
Experience a special music-inspired tour. Your wireless headphones have a function where the voice of the guide switches to the special selection of music. It’s easy, simply listen to the guide, enjoy the beautiful music, and walk from one sight to another.

This tour is more about the areas that are hidden from the average tourist. The guide will talk mostly about urban legends and varying points of interest which have not been told by any history book. The main topics will be the history of freemasonry and the life of the aristocracy, as well as contemporary themes, Moscow’s criminal past, and poverty in the city. The music used in this tour is very different, ranging from contemporary Russian melodies to classics.

Sights on your way will include John’s Hill, (a quiet place in the city center center with a pre-revolutionary spirit), Khitrovka (for the criminal past of the 19th century), the Church of the Archangel Gabriel (which used to be a masonic temple), Myasnitskay Street (home to aristocrats and masons), the Perlov Tea House, and so much more!
