  • How little we know. We are the Muscovites. Sometimes, to evaluate something familiar, must-stop. Stop and look. When you're running in long-familiar city on business, we run: purposefully from point a to point b. you are accustomed to! AND ALL OF A SUDDEN! Friends invited on the tour. Guide chosen consciously. It's nice, now there are several companies which lead to Moscow is fun, delicious and interesting. So the project site was found "a completely different city" with guide Irina mpt by Strelnikova (Yes, those who fall on the trips Irene, then returned to her and her stories again and again). Enthusiastic tour guide, interesting stories, with the history of the House, unusual architecture and architect, and simple magic interiors! Unexpected, different. In our company there were people of various professions and ages. It was interesting to everyone, even adolescents that are quite far from love for architecture and interiors. We visited in an unusual place, while in a place with enough democratic atmosphere where you can touch something, sit, crawl. All curious and loving Moscow-definitely recommend.

  • This mansion on tverskoy Boulevard, located next to the MOSCOW ART THEATRE, named for its owner-p. Smirnov, the eldest son of Peter Smirnov's vinzavodchika. The building itself was built in the year 1759 and initially belonged to the rotmistru horse guards. Subsequently it many times passed from hand to hand until it was acquired by Smirnov. The new owner wanted the Transfiguration of his mansion. Work on the redesign and redevelopment of facades, interior decoration he instructed Guiseppe Nouveau architect Fyodor Shehtelju. The architect did not fundamentally, but only modified the mansion. This work lasted five years until the year 1906. Now House Smirnov can be visited with excursion. And yet it is leased under a variety of activities. Inside the mansion eight halls, located on different levels. Each of them is decorated in the style of: Roman, Egyptian, Greek, classical, Gothic, boudoir and rokajl'naja room.

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.
