    What to Expect
    Your Moscow tour will start by taking you to the ArtPlay district, the first neighbourhood of its kind in the city, inspired by London’s galleries that occupy former industrial spaces. ArtPlay is home to Moscow’s trendiest studios, shops, and cafés, and we’ll visit a shop where local artisans sell handmade earrings, bracelets, and clothing, as well as old postcards, pins, and other finds. We’ll also browse through a shop where they sell cups and t-shirts with prints made by autistic children.

    From there, we’ll take a snack break with a stop at the only vegan place in the city, with a great atmosphere and super delicious food. If the weather’s nice, we’ll gather in their small outdoor garden — but even if we can’t go outside, don’t worry as they have a very hip and stylish cafeteria.

    Along the way, you’ll also learn a bit about recycling in Russia, as here is one of few places where they accept rubbish to recycle.

    We’ll move on to a few art houses, including the British Higher School of Design and Winzavod, the centre of modern arts and a former wine factory. We’ll visit several galleries situated within the property, which regularly change exhibits and always surprise guests with something original.

    While we’re here, you may want to check out a local shop selling vinyl records. You can find rare collector records, as well as some modern editions — a true highlight for vinyl lovers! There are also a few souvenir shops with extraordinary finds — bring your spending money for gifts to bring back home!

    At the end of the tour, if you’re feeling hungry, you can stay for a meal at the marvelous café, with tasty dishes and welcoming staff. Otherwise, your guide will accompany you to the closest metro station, leaving you free to explore more of Moscow on your own.

    I booked this tour while I had a few days to explore a little off the beaten track, it tucked every box and more. Elena, my guide, was so knowledgeable about the development of the modern art culture, and where it sat in Russia's modern and past history. She took me to places I

    I really enjoyed today's Bohemian Moscow tour with our guide Maria! Organizers and Maria were doing a great job. Despite the weather she took her time to carefully explain many features in different Moscow Art clusters. Maria is a professional and her English was excellent.
