LUBYANKA - DETSKIY MIR OBSERVATION DECK - DONSKOY MONESTERY
Together with the local company Strelka Travel, we developed a tour where you will understand the KGB regime better by walking trough the KGB office district, Lubyanka, and visiting the Donskoy monastery. Last years this tour was our most popular tour, thanks to our wonderful and knowledgeable guide Elena. The walk will take place on October 14th and start at 10.00 and end around 12.30. Please bring you Trojka card for the metro ride to the Donskoy Monestery. See the details of this tour below.
We need a minimum of 8 participants and we only have 10 spots, so please email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to participate or if you have more questions.
