DescriptionBe collected at your accommodation by your guide and listen to a brief overview of the history of the Moscow metro. Begin your tour at the Golden Horde at the Bolshaya Ordynka Street. Visit the main center of Tatar Muscovy, the Zamoskvorechye district, where the names of streets and lanes testify to its former residents. The oldest mosque of modern Moscow and numerous mansions here belonged to wealthy Muslim merchants of the 19th and 20th centuries, Salih Yerzin and Shamsi Asadullayev. Next, visit one of the most immense structures that recently appeared in Moscow, the Cathedral Mosque on Prospekt Mira. This is one of the largest mosques in Russia and Europe. Its two main minarets have a height of almost 80 meters. The mosque is illuminated by more than 320 walls and ceiling chandeliers, which are made of crystal in different sizes and shapes. 12 kilograms of gold leaf were used for gilding the domes. In good weather, climb to the observation deck of one of the minarets and enjoy the picturesque panorama of the city from a bird's eye view. The final point of your tour will be the Memorial Mosque on Poklonnaya Hill, which was built in 1997 in memory of the Muslim soldiers who died in the Great Patriotic War. At the end, your guide will take you to the nearest metro station where you can continue your independent walk around Moscow.
