Description

If you want to understand Moscow's local culture then you should experience it yourself, and discovering off-the-beaten-path Moscow during the Alsternative Moscow walking tour is one of the best ways to do so.

A short walk from Red Square and St. Basil's cathedral leads you to a neighborhood full of mystery, urban legends and myths. You will get an overview of 19th-century Moscow, take a historic tram ride and hear spine-tingling stories about ghosts, famous criminals and eccentric merchants.

Sights include:

  • St. John's Hill, an urban sanctuary with a pre-revolutionary spirit
  • Khokhlovka, home to Russian hipsters and street art
  • Khitrovka, the unsavory 19th-century neighborhood crawling with criminals, brothels and alcohol in the 19th century
