Moscow is full of interesting places and Zamoskvoretche, which can be translated as beyond the Moskova river, is one of them. Your guide will help you to discover the variety of architectural styles of the churches and mansions populating this area.

The district of Zamoskvoretche has its own atmosphere, completely different from the rest of Moscow, especially the city center and the Kremlin. In this district, discover mansions, sometimes made of woods, sometimes enclosed in lovely gardens. These buildings reveal the history of Moscow and will show you the colorful past of the capital. This district used to be inhabited by working people, who earned a living as soldiers, craftsmen, or merchants. Discover the numerous, and sometimes hidden, churches and temples of this district.
