What you'll do

Our walk will begin at Kropotkinskaya Metro station, which is said to have been inspired by the Egyption Temple of Amun. Our next stop is Muzeon, a park of arts is a unique open air museum of sculpture. More then 1000 sculptures are represented in collection: the monuments of the Soviet era and socialism period, works by Russian avant-gardists and contemporary artists and also public art. Among monuments you may see works by Evgeny Vuchetich, Vladimir Lemport, Sergey Merkurov, Vera Mukhina and other famous sculptors. Then we move to Red October, a massive compound of red-brick buildings that used to be a chocolate factory. The factory produced the iconic Red October chocolate for decades. However, in 2007, the company ceased operations on the island and moved premises, leaving the space open for development. The former chocolate factory complex has been transformed into art and photo galleries, designers’ studios, television and Web media headquarters, bars and cafes. Of course, we will stop by the chocolate shop and taste some sweets. After the tour I'm inviting you for cup of tea of coffee to relax, chat and enjoy the view over the Moscow - river.

Eleonora

Hello and welcome to Moscow! It's my third year in Moscow and I still keep exploring the city, cause the only constant thing about it, that it always changes, and there is also something new to discover. Most of all, I would like Moscow's guests get inspired by the city. I want people to observe how the creative force and ideas of Muscovites can transform the city from within. Moscow is a melting pot and it's always craving for something new, which finds its reflection in food, art and music.
