Moscow off-the-beaten-track

What do you know about Moscow? What have you seen? Kremlin, mausoleum, Red Square? Pretty boring, isn’t it?

Moscow is a big dynamic city with a lot of surprising sightseeings. Let’s imagine you take a walk along Tverskaya for example (the main street of Moscow). You are blessed to have sunny weather, so your walking tour is very bright, energetic and so much fun! You start near Duma, Tverskaya, 2 (near Red Square) and walk down Tverskaya Street stopping by houses, monuments and churches to learn about their history and legends.

First that you see is The Ritz in the background, one of the best hotels in Moscow. World-known stars stay there during their travels about Russia.

You go forward and find one beautiful hidden house. It was moved from the first line of Tverskaya Street for 50 meters! And when we say "moved" it means this building was indeed physically moved together with its inhabitants during one night! Incredible! Did you know about it before?

After you enter the oldest and for sure the most beautiful shop In Eleseevsky Store. This store you can find in most of guide books, and it is worth visiting. Functioning these days as a supermarket, when you come inside it looks more like a museum with gorgeous interiors of XVIII century!

After a breathtaking shop you go to Pushkin's Square - the traditional place to appoint dates and gatherings. It is full of city legends and beautiful buildings to get to know about. You are need a rest and you decide to finish this walk in a park. And just for fun you try on fake side whiskers to be just like the most famous Russian author Pushkin close to his monument.
