DescriptionYour Moscow tour will start by taking you to the ArtPlay district, the first neighborhood of its kind in the city, inspired by London’s galleries that occupy former industrial spaces. ArtPlay is home to Moscow’s trendiest studios, shops, and cafes, and you visit a shop where local artisans sell handmade earrings, bracelets, and clothing, as well as old postcards, pins, and other finds. You also browse through a shop where they sell cups and t-shirts with prints made by autistic children. From there, take a snack break with a stop at the only vegan place in the city, with a great atmosphere and super delicious food. If the weather’s nice, you gather in their small outdoor garden — but even if you can’t go outside, don’t worry as they have a very hip and stylish cafeteria. Along the way, you’ll also learn a bit about recycling in Russia, as here is one of few places where they accept rubbish to recycle. Move on to a few art houses, including the British Higher School of Design and Winzavod, the center of modern arts and a former wine factory. Visit several galleries situated within the property, which regularly change exhibits and always surprise guests with something original. While you are here, you may want to check out a local shop selling vinyl records. You can find rare collector records, as well as some modern editions — a true highlight for vinyl lovers! There are also a few souvenir shops with extraordinary finds — bring your spending money for gifts to bring back home! At the end of the tour, if you’re feeling hungry, you can stay for a meal at the marvelous cafe, with tasty dishes and welcoming staff. Otherwise, your guide will accompany you to the closest metro station, leaving you free to explore more of Moscow on your own.
