We begin our walk with the mysteries of Slavyanskaya square. We learn the Moscow address of the expression «in the middle of nowhere» and where the usual «devilry». Where the «Industrial prison» and how to reward and punish drunkards. Secrets of the temples of the 17th century will lead us to Varvarka, and difficult 30-ies will show us their rules for the use of temples. Laugh at the jokes of merchants at the center of Moscow trade of the 18th century. Talk about house of the 16th century, the birthplace of the founder of the famous Royal dynasty in Russia, we were «citerna»? And why British merchants were expelled from Russia.

Let's go down to the modern symbol of Russia – Zaryadye Park and trace the history of this place: from the moment when there were houses of artisans, slums, a hotel included in the Guinness book of records to the present day. Find out where people fly over Moscow and all of Russia, where to breathe the Arctic air, where the plants live in the air and see what hides at the highest point of the Park. A bridge-paradox will reveal a view of the sights of Moscow, which is also interesting to talk about.
