During the Moving Buildings on Tverskaya Street tour the audience will be going to the 1930s. According to Stalin's urban plans the narrow Moscow streets had to be turned into huge prospects. To preserve historical buildings, they were moved to new places. Viewers will be able to find out all secrets of relocation technology and discover hidden courtyards. They will get to know how houses moved, could people be inside, and who is Emmanuel Handel.
Online tour is guided by Ayrat Bagautdinov, architectural historian, author of the Moscow Through the Eyes of an Engineer project.
