What to Expect
Discover a lesser known nook of Moscow on a 3-hour walking tour of the Izmaylovo District, a historical part of Moscow that was once the ancestral land of the noble Romanov family.
Your guide will immerse you in the atmosphere of the past, to see masters of handicraft at work, such as blacksmiths, potters, and wood carvers. You can even take part in the process, producing artworks of the applied and decorative arts.
The history of Izmaylovo dates back to 1389, but it wasn’t until 1935 that it was incorporated into the city of Moscow. Among its highlights is the urban forest of Izmaylovsky Park, some 3.5 times larger than New York’s Central Park.
See the new Kremlin in Izmaylovo, where fairytales entwine with real life. The newly built wedding complex was designed in the style of a medieval Russian citadel, complete with wedding palace, a reconstructed wooden church, and a large market.
Wander the huge flea market to find Soviet souvenirs, and a little bit of everything else, including the famous matryoshki (nesting dolls), lacquer boxes, propaganda posters and more.
