Full description
After meeting your professional guide in the lobby of the hotel, travel either on foot, by public transport, or in a taxi to the center of Tula, where your personal walking tour will start. The first point of the tour will be the main attraction of Tula, the Kremlin. This is a unique, well-preserved from the 16th century complex of historical monuments. See the Assumption Cathedral, built in the style of Russian Baroque in 1766, the Epiphany Cathedral of the late 19th century, erected in memory of soldiers who fell in the Patriotic War of 1812, as well as the 19th-century shopping mall and the first city power station of the 20th century.

Then walk through the historic center of the city with the old streets adjoining it. Pass by the oldest Orthodox church in Tula, the Church of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Museum of Arms, built in the form of a helmet, and monuments of Zarechny Forge Sloboda. During the tour, hear stories about the emergence and development of the city, its role in the past and present of Russia, the mysteries and secrets of the Kremlin, and the famous inhabitants of the city.

After the walking part of the excursion, you and the guide will go to the real Russian estate Yasnaya Polyana, where the genius of Russian literature Leo Tolstoy lived and worked. Here the great Russian writer lived most of his life and wrote War and Peace and Anna Karenina. Learn about the history of the ancient family of Tolstoy and the biography of the writer. See firsthand where Tolstoy lived and feel his spirit in every corner of this place. After a tour of Yasnaya Polyana, return to Tula with your guide, who will accompany you back to your hotel.
