Lets get off the beaten path on this private tour!


Why don't we do something special today?
I suggest we ride on Moscow's streetcar along the old boulevards down to the Zamoskvorechye Quarter (literally - beyond the Moskva River) and beyond the Garden ring. We jump off the tram to visit the Danilovsky food market the biggest one in the city center.
After that we head to the Donskoy Monastery, which is famous for its cemetery with its many beautiful memorials and headstones.
We'll see the tomb of Alexandr Solzhenitsyn the author of the Gulag Archipelago and statues from the original Christ the Savior Cathedral which survived its destruction in the Stalin era
