From the Ruriks to the Romanovs

This historical tour is as close to authentic Old Russia as you are likely to get in Moscow. It gives you the chance to see everyday life and customs of wealthy Russian families of that epoch. We’ll start with the Chambers of the Romanov Boyars, where you can find carefully preserved interiors and artifacts of medieval Russia. And after the visit to the royal estate Kolomenskoye with the famous Wooden Palace of Tsar Alexis you’ll understand ‘zdrav bude, boyarin’ without translation.

In case you combine this tour with Half-Day City Tour your guide will take you to  lunch somewhere close to Red Square so that to continue the tour in the Chambers of the Romanov Boyars.

Varvarka Street

Varvarka Street is said to be one of the oldest in Moscow. This is the heart of the district known as Zaryade, which was once the dwelling place of the artisans who sold their wares in Red Square. It is also known as an open-air museum of Russian medieval architecture. Here you can find the Chambers of the Romanov Boyars, Old English Court and several beautiful churches. In 1380, it was the road down which Dmitry Donskoy paraded after defeating the Mongols at the Battle of Kulikovo Field.

Chambers of the Romanov Boyars

The Chambers have operated as a museum since 1859 offering visitors a rare opportunity to experience aristocratic life in Moscow before the reforms of Peter the Great. The house is on two levels. The basement floor contains the treasury and weapons and the upper level is ‘svetlitsa’ where the women spent their days weaving and doing needlework. The beautiful interiors, recreated by the architect Richter, show an unusually complete glimpse of a world unknown to most Russians, let alone foreign visitors.

Kolomenskoye Historical and Architectural Museum and Reserve

Kolomenskoye Historical and Architectural Museum and Reserve is located on a hill overlooking the Moskva River. Once a grand country getaway for royals, it is now a popular public park containing numerous cultural attractions. Discover centuries-old churches and unique examples of wooden architecture in this grassy open-air setting. The oldest existing structure - the UNESCO-listed Church of Ascension - was built in 1532 to mark Ivan the Terrible’s birth.

The Wooden Palace of Alexey Mikhailovich

Russian tsars used Kolomenskoye as a vacation home from the 14th century onward. The park once contained a splendid wooden palace constructed for Tsar Aleksey I. ‘Wooden palaces are warmer, jollier and healthier’, - said the Tsar choosing between projects of wooden and stone palaces.  The original building was demolished in the 18th century. Today, tourists can visit the full-scale reconstruction, which was erected in 2010.
