In years gone by, the Zamoskvorechye area was its own very special world within Moscow. A place in the middle of a bustling capital, where the new masters of life, the merchants, brought their own special way of living to the city - rural, unhurried, patriarchal. Back then, Zamoskvorechye consisted of narrow streets, adorned with fine houses surrounded by secure high fences. However, in this corner of merchant's Moscow not only towering mansions turned fortresses were built; lush apartments, rich temples and almshouses were also constructed. The atmosphere of serenity that reigned here attracted representatives of the creative intelligentsia. We invite you to stroll around Moscow of a bygone era!
Here you will enjoy the beauty of this quiet, cosy corner of Moscow, learn about how the Zamoskvorechye are sprang up, visit its beautiful churches and rich merchant estates.
You will see the places connected with the life and activities of Alexander Ostrovsky, Leo Tolstoy, Fyodor Dostoyevsky and Anna Akhmatova.
You’ll also hear a lot of entertaining stories about the lives of Moscow merchants - both eminent and little known, get acquainted with the outstanding representatives of the merchant dynasties of the Mamontov, Tretyakov, Morozov families.

On the other, there is a blissful provincial silence to be found here, and the feeling that you have entered a different dimension. The lost world of merchant’s Moscow awaits you!
