A journey through the hidden beauties of the Russian and Mongolian countryside, witness the harsh lives of smugglers and vagrants, taste simple cuisine, listen to stories around you from the rich and poor alike, yet create your own tale as you travel through a compelling experience.
"Moscow Greater" is one of the best think I have faced in my trips. To be sincere I was a little doubting in asking for the help of "Moscow Greater" and when I applied online I didn't took it seriously, but I really appreciated your being correct and interesting in showing us Mockba :)
Instead of specially trained guides, it’s the inhabitants of the Russian capital themselves who operate the walking tours of the “other” Moscow’s lanes and alleys. They show guests their personal Moscow, the one they know and love… the one that no guide book, even the most detailed, can reveal to tourists.
For sure I'll recommend your "Moscow Greater" to all my friends, because you are Great :)
Thank you and hope to meet again.
Best regards, Orieta
Photo Museum/gallery in one of the loveliest bits of Moscow. Inside I've never seen a boring photo. Sometimes a little subversive, always entertaining, so well composed it's like Eisenstein himself curates. Often they have photos showing what it's like outside Moscow, which show the awesome beauty, and often desolation of the country. There's always a couple of exhibitions, generally a historical or landscape alongside a celeb-focused or art shoot. In a small-ish space, a lot of variety. Cheap to get in too! Price varies, but generally around £5 mark.
