  • Museum on relationships fought from the time of Ivan the Terrible in the Trade House of the time. It is a small museum which can be visited very quickly and is not expensive. Unfortunately the audioguides are available in Russian. It's frustrating because the English commentary accompanying the exhibition are very elliptical. There is however 2 exciting maps: one showing the trade routes between Europe, Asia minor and the Russia and another showing the Russia and its neighbors according to the point of view of the Russians of the 16th century. Recommended for fans of economic history and geography.

  • July 17 years. With great difficulty (all the entrances to the Museum closed due to Grand (re-) construction on the former site of the hotel "Russia") hit-snuck, finally, in this museum-long pricelivalsja to it. Total-complete frustration! For 200 rubles you look around the courtroom, 3 copies of portraits and documents a couple gizmos of excavations on the site of the House, and modern replicas of supposedly ancient things. Well, Yes, there is a restored interior of the Breech Chamber with a tiled stove. But for him to spread 200 d is too. No sign! No problem! Offer audioguide-perhaps with him and more interesting. But I used to watch museums myself. And extra audio guide does not want! And museums are obliged to provide at least a minimum of information about the exhibits and Museum topics. And here-about the Russo-British ties. In the end, and in the museums we pay service-here it is not provided for this price! Result-the price of the ticket does not match the quality of filing of Museum material! Disappointed entirely. Don't waste your time and money at this Museum! Go better in the main building of the Museum of Moscow on Zubovsky!

  • The House of the old English yard on Varvarka Street is one of the oldest buildings in the capital. This unique monument of civil architecture was built in the early 16th century. House history is inextricably linked with the emergence and formation of the Anglo-Russian relations, flourishing in the reign of Tsar Ivan IV and Queen Elizabeth i. in the year 1555 in London created trading company «Moscow», which in 1556 he received as a gift from Ivan the terrible yard on the street in Moscow, Varvarka Street near the Church of St. Maxim. Thus, for today the Chamber of the old English Court is the oldest official representative of a foreign power, preserved in Moscow.

House history is inextricably linked with the emergence and formation of the Anglo-Russian relations. In the reconstituted copies of old books are placed Interior, maps and documents. We learned a lot of new and interesting things. What goods were imported to Russia, through which shipping routes and cities. Met with household items, plunged into the atmosphere of the 16th century. Recommend!

  • Exhibits of everyday life is not enough, but nice restored architecture. There are stairs on which walked perhaps himself Ivan the terrible. In the video an interesting film about building Zarjad'ja, which isn't in your network.

Where to stay in Moscow

The capital of Russia and a huge metropolis, Moscow offers a plethora of different types of accommodations. Many renowned hotel chains are represented in the city, and some of its hotels rank among the world's most luxurious and expensive. Those traveling on a more modest budget can choose among the boutique or Soviet-era hotels. There are also numerous hostels and short-term rental apartments throughout the city. When choosing a place to stay, especially if you're only planning for a short visit, always bear in mind the size of Moscow. Staying too far from the center might mean that the precious time you could spend on sightseeing will be wasted in traffic and transport.
