What to Expect
A professional guide will meet you at the hotel, from where, depending on the location of the hotel, you will go on foot, by public transport or by taxi to the Moscow Choral Synagogue. On your way to the first point of the excursion the guide will give a brief overview of the history of the Moscow metro.

For many centuries Russia has been a multi-religious and multinational country. For people who live in such a vast area, religion has always been the foundation on which moral identification and cultural traditions have been formed. Living on the same territory for many centuries, representatives of different confessions learned to respect the religions of other nations, which became the basis for maintaining peace, social development and prosperity. The professional guide will take you through the history of religious architecture, outstanding monuments of Orthodox, Catholic, Muslim and Jewish culture. You will learn about the rules of worship, the characteristics of decoration, traditions, strictly followed by the faithful.

After this exclusive tour, you will better understand the lifestyle and behavior of people of different faiths. We kindly ask you to dress so that you can visit the temples and observe religious rules. These are clothes that cover your shoulders and legs, for women a headscarf is required. At the end of the tour your guide will take you to the nearest metro station, from where you can continue your independent walk in Moscow.
