We will start near the former gas factory, then go up the streets, have a rest in the Bauman's garden, take a picture of the oldest wooden houses which only few left. Than we get through Old and New Basmanniy streets, admire the view of the Bogoyavlenskiy cathedral, one of the oldest in Moscow. We will finish not far from Krasnie vorota, the metro station.
