The online tour will explore how people lived in the region surrounding Moscow from the Stone Age to the era of Peter the Great. It also shows some of the most important archaeological discoveries in recent years.
The city of Moscow's early history is connected with Prince Yuri Dolgoruky, who arrived on the territory of what was then the small settlement of Moscow on 4 April 1147. At that time, Moscow was a tiny fortress at the top of Borovitsky Hill. The online tour shows viewers fragments of the oak fortifications that made up the first wooden walls of the Kremlin. Viewers can also see images of the Kremlin's first stone walls, which arose in the late 14th century. Viewers will discover when the familiar red brick walls were erected and what other fortresses appeared in the 16th century.
The Museum of Moscow was founded in 1896. The museum is located in the Proviantskiye Sklady (Foodstuff Warehouses), a federal monument of architecture. The museum's catalogue numbers about 800,000 items, including a rich collection of archaeological artefacts. The Museum of Moscow has four branches: the Lefortovo Museum, the Old English Court, the Museum of Archaeology and the Gilyarovskiy Centre.
