Moscow. War and Peace

Moscow. War and Peace

History has a tendency to repeat itself. Why do Russians have that ‘siege’ thinking?  Why is the memory of Great Patriotic War still sacral for us? Why didn’t the invincible Tamerlane take a risk to attack the Kremlin Walls? Why did the great armies of Napoleon and Hitler find their death in Russian land? Does geopolitical concept of Heartland and Rimland still affect modern policy? This the tour for tourists interested in answers to these questions.

Hotel Pick Up

Your guide will meet you in the lobby area of your hotel, Leningradsky Railway Station if you travel from Saint-Petersburg by ‘Sapsan’ train or any other indicated address to begin the tour from there.

Church of All Saints in Kulishki

The Church of All-Saints in Kulishki was founded by Prince Dmitry Donskoy in memory of Russian warriors who died on the field of Kulikovo in the battle against the Mongols. Now this is the historical centre of the city but in 1380  the place chosen for the church was so far away from the border of Moscow that the word ‘kulichki’ became a synonym for ‘at the world's end’. Since 1998 the church has been the podvorye (embassy church) of the Greek Orthodox Church of Alexandria.

New Maiden (Novodevichy) Convent

The Novodevichy Convent was founded by Grand Duke Vasily III in the 1524.  It is an outstanding example of Orthodox architecture sometimes called “the Moscow Kremlin in miniature”. The Convent is the only ancient nunnery which served as a fortress at the same time. It was also the place where the decisive battle between Polish-Lithuanian Troops of Hetman Khodkevich and Russian volunteer army of the merchant Minin and Prince Pozharsky started in 1612.

Church of Life-Giving Trinity in Sparrow Hills

A church existed here back in the middle of the 15th century. Its old fence with the arched entrance survived to this day. Construction of the present classical style church started in 1811 before the Napoleonic invasion. The military commander of the Russian troops Mikhail Kutuzov had prayed here in 1812 on the eve of the military council in Fili when the decision was taken to leave Moscow to the French. The church never ceased operation during the Soviet period.

Red Square

Order of the Supreme Commander in Chief, Marshal of the Soviet Union Iosif Stalin: «To mark the victory over Germany in the Great Patriotic War, I order a parade of troops of the Army, Navy and the Moscow Garrison, the Victory Parade, on June 24, 1945, at Moscow's Red Square». That memorable parade involved 40,000 Red Army soldiers, 1,850 military vehicles and other military hardware. One of the most famous moments of the parade took place when the soldiers threw the banners of Nazi Germany down next to the mausoleum.

‘Varenichnaya’ in Nikolskaya Street

After visit to Red Square we can stay for lunch in a nice Russian café preserving the authentic spirit of the 70s. The interior, saturated with nostalgia for the USSR – from phones and wallpaper to editions of Soviet newspapers and popular Soviet films on TV screens. The menu is also full of nostalgia - Olivier salad, borsch, meatball soup and traditional dumplings with various fillings.

Museum of the Patriotic War in 1812

The victory in the Patriotic War of 1812 was one of the most important events in Russian history of the 19th century. It involved the growth of national consciousness, the rise of the international prestige of our country and the radical change in European politics. The campaign of Napoleon against Russia ended in a triumphal march of the Russian army through the streets of Paris.

Central Museum of Great Patriotic War 1941-1945

This is the unique memorial complex which serves to eternize memory of Soviet people valour, heroism and courage during the Great Patriotic War. In the center of the museum is the Hall of Glory, a white marble room with the names of all Heroes of the Soviet Union. The museum features dioramas depicting major battles, photographs of wartime activities, weapons and munitions, awards, newsreels, letters from the battlefront.

Victory Park

The Victory Park is the continuation of the indoor museum. In the centre there is a statue of Nike and a monument of St George slaying the dragon. A golden-domed Orthodox church was erected on the hilltop in 1993-95, followed by a memorial mosque and the Holocaust Memorial Synagogue. On 9 May 1995 the first post-Soviet victory parade was held here with the first President of the Russian Federation Boris Yeltsin in attendance.
