About the guru Vera

My name is Vera and I am continuosly discovering Moscow despite of the fact that it’s my birth place. Usually everybody thinks of Moscow as of a chaotic capital with plenty of cars and people, always hurrying up somewhere. And it is kind of true. Still you need to know there are many green areas and nice cosy yards. There are places where history of Russia is still to be seen and you can imagine you step onto the ground, which Alexander Pushkin or Ivan the Terrible used to step on. That's what I love about my city - the more modern it gets, the more exciting it gets to discover some hidden historical sites in it. And even more precious therefore become its worldwide known architecture masterpieces.

About the tour

This tour makes a good start for exploring the city. We'll start from the giant Cathedral of Christ the Saviour and enjoy Moscow river views to Cremlin from over there. After that we continue to Red Square, stopping by some other amusing architectural sites and sculptures.

The walk ends in Red Square near Cremlin, in the heart of Moscow, so it will be convenient for you to see something else in the center or have a lunch right after the tour.

I must first appreciate my guide Vera. I was the only one for the day but instead of cancelling she came and took me for a very personalised walk along the City Centre.

She was very informative and great company. Gave many helpful tips and becoz we started a little late it became a wonderful night walk too.

She is superb, please try her.
