Full description
A professional guide will meet you in your hotel and you will go to the start of the excursion by subway. On your way, the guide will tell you a brief history of the Moscow subway. Your private tour will start at the world-famous Kremlin in Izmailovo, based at the famous Vernissage in Izmailovo. You will visit the Museum of Folk Arts. The museum presents different types of folk art and heritage. It combines the original objects and creations of folk craftsmen - ancient folk musical instruments, household items, and utensils, folk clothes, a collection of games and toys, and the folk theater.
