I'm glad you're here.My name is Daniel Petrov.
I graduated from the Russian State University for the Humanities( Museum studies department). I've been an independent tour guide and a member of the Moscow Guide's Association for over 10 years.
I'll help you to discover this unusual and versatile place. The city of imperial double-headed eagles on Iversky gates and the Soviet five-pointed stars on the Kremlin's towers and on subway walls. The city where victorious Apollo gracing the Bolshoi Theatre is in the same neighborhood as Stalin's State Planning Committee with the hammer and sickle on the facade. You'll feel a unique atmosphere of the place in Red Square while standing between the St Basil's Cathedral and Lenin's mausoleum or visiting quiet and peaceful Novodevichy Convent.
On arrival in Moscow I can meet you at the airport, at your hotel or area of choice for a panoramic tour of the city (3-4 hrs) which will show you all the main sights of Moscow, and includes a stop in the Red Square in front of St Basil Cathedral . Then the next day or the same one we can do something else.
Besides the obvious sights that everybody needs to see like the Kremlin and the Tretyakov gallery Iíll take you outside the city center to show you the life of the average people.Iíll show you the Soviet era houses where Moscovites live, parks where they relax, shops where
they buy their food. And all this is within 15 min ride from the Red Square.
Iíll show you things that you wonít see on the tour bus.
Areas to be visited can be tailored to suit your particular interests. I will suggest an itinerary to match your interests and timeframe.
