We will take you around the parts of the capital where different spooky events occurred and some stay still do. There are ghosts and other harrowing tales but also the positive side of the spirit world:
- Strange things are known to take place at the Menshikov Tower, said to have been destroyed by ‘higher powers’ for the pride of its creator. The same can be said at the Church of All Saints in Kulishki, the walls of which have been haunted since the seventeenth century.
- Not all ghosts and spirits are evil, there are those that hang around in the name of good. The latter includes the spirit of the brutal landowner Saltychikha, sent back to bring light to many of the peasants previously under his rule. The ghost of the warlock, Bruce Yakov, sometimes wanders around the Sukharevsky Square at night, as if he were looking for the ruined tower, where during his lifetime he practiced black magic and alchemy. They say the spirit of Savva Morozov still wanders around the mansion, which he built for his beloved wife
- There are magic places, where wishes are made and granted, the most famous of them being the execution place on Red Square. At one time, death sentences were carried out here and heads flew violently from shoulders. At this spot today, people thrown coins over their shoulders, in the centre of the stone circle, making wishes. This is probably the most famous mystic spot in Moscow. There is also the spirit of the princess Sophia, the famous prisoner of the Novodevichy monastery. She also favours people, you only need to make a wish by touching the white-stone walls of the Sophia Tower.
This is only a small part of our list. We will visit Moscow’s most famous places said to be marked by the presence of supernatural forces. Get your blood pumping, your imagination whirring and join us!
