For more than 70 years Moscow was the capital of the immense Soviet empire. The streets of the city still contain remnants of the communist regime, Cold War and the fearsome Soviet strongholds that still guard Russia's young democracy.

Discover hidden chapters of the Soviet history from the Great October Revolution and Perestroika to Lenin and Gorbachev. Your expert guide will discuss the Great Terror under Stalin, the GULAG system, the secret KGB prison and day-to-day life for citizens of the Soviet Union.
