"She Moscow" Private Signature Off-The-Beaten-Track Tour in Moscow

Moscow is a woman, even the gender of the word is feminine. And she has dozens of faces - a mother, a queen, a con artist, a nun, a prostitute, an angel, a witch, a muse, a doll and many others. Dive into the history (or herstory) of Moscow via stories of outstanding women - both famous and notorious - walking up and down one of seven hills, which preserved a unique atmosphere of old Moscow with narrow, crooked streets and reminders from different époques. It's a perfect choice, if you want to see Moscow off the beaten track.
