About the tour on

I would like to invite you on a tour around the Basmanny district — still one of the oldest parts of Moscow, the street view here is the same it was hundred years ago.

We are going to walk along the streets and learn about the famous inhabitants of the place — we will see where the uncle of Alexander Pushkin lived and died, where Marina Tsvetaeva, the well-known russian poetess was studying, we will pass the residence of the revolutioner's family — Murav'ev-Apostol's, which hardly tickled over the the difficult times of abandonmnet, we will also visit the house where the ghosts live.
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.
The route is rather long, it will take approximetely 3 hours, so please ensure to put on the comfortable shoes.

See you!
