Ulitsa Varvaka and Surrounding Areas
A good place to go for a walk and to discover how the city used to be in the past.
Discover the city's secrets.
During a walk round this area of the city, it won't just be the grandeur of the place that will attract your attention, but the large quantity of hiding places that you'll discover throughout your stroll. It's considered as the oldest street in the city but despite its short length, it has many old religious buildings. The construction of a great mass of cement which presently houses a large hotel, unfortunately destroyed a part of the civil and religious buildings in the area. Despite this, the street managed to keep its essence and it still takes passers-by back to the old times. Imagine the members of the Romanov family, or Russian nobles of the period passing by among the buildings. You'll find yourself in the most historical and unknown side to Moscow while you admire the churches of St. Maksim and St. Barbara!
