Walking tours - Architecture

We love discovering Moscow by foot. Even though we know the city quite well, on a walking tour with a guide you'll see&hear many interesting details which you'd never seen before and which will give you a better understanding of and appreciation for this wonderful city.

After a successful "history" series we now developed an "architecture" series, together with the local company Strelka Travel. The focus will be on architectural styles of neighborhoods and buildings. You sign up for a series of 2 walks which will take place in September every other week on Thursdays. The walks will start at 10.00 and end around 12.00. Below you'll see the dates & the high level information of the tour.

We need a minimum of 5 participants and we only have 10 spots, so please email to tips@moscowliving.org if you'd like to participate or if you have more questions.

We hope to see you on this tour!

Regular price 3000RB for 2 walking tours, now only 2600RB!
