Conquest of the Kitay-gorod walking tour

The imaginary border of the 16th century

500 years ago, almost all of Moscow fit inside Kitay-gorod, surrounded by a beautiful and powerful fortification wall. It became the second defence ring of the city after the Kremlin. Most of the wall was destroyed by the Soviet government in the 30s of the 20th century, viewers will be shown what was left and told about the fortification secrets of the Middle Ages.

Online tour is guided by Andrey Tutushkin.
