The most important
Vasily Bazhenov is one of the most famous Russian architects. So the question is why we can see only single example of his building today and yet we’re not sure if it actually belongs to him. At this excursion listeners will be able to hear about unimaginable projects of Vasily Bazhenov, his eagerness and inspiration and various misfortunes that prevented him to make his dreams a reality.

Duration: 1,5 hours or 3 hours (with Tsaritsyno)
Type of excursion: walking
The excursion starts at the Red Square. We will start from Vasily Bazhenov biography which includes his relations with government, his believes and ideas. The first and also the most impressive in my opinion project of Bazhenov is The Kremlin. It’s hard to imagine that this incredible ensemble was almost created. You will be able to compare this project to the modern view of Kremlin. Thereafter we will see The Pashkov House – the only project of Bazhenov which actually was build. Excursion ends in Tsaritsyno – another dream that literally was crumbling in front of the architect because of sudden circumstances.
