Metro, Space Exploration and VDNKH

Get acquainted with the most ambitious projects of bolsheviks on this tour: start with a metro ride, see the recently restored All-union Agricultural Exhibition (VDNH shortly) with gilded fountains and state-of-art pavilions, and learn about the Space Race.

Moscow by bike
In a few years Moscow has surprisingly become one of the most bike and scooter-friendly cities of the world with wide panoramic bike paths along the river banks and all through the city centre. We invite you to enjoy the bike ride in the beautiful parks of the capital that are very conveniently situated one after the other all along the Moscow River. We will start with the Gorky Park with its enormous Soviet decorations and flamboyant flower beds, continue to charming Neskychny Garden (which literally means "not boring" in Russian) with ruin bridges and the mansion of Prince Trubetskoy and further on to the Sparrow Hills Park Embankment and Luzhniki Embankment across the river with modern landscape design and the Stadium where the World Cup 2018 inauguration and final took place.
