Description

Everyone knows Moscow as the center of Russian Orthodoxy, but for many centuries the capital of Russia was also known as one of the largest Muslim cities in the world. Explore the main center of Islamic Moscow - Zamoskvorechye and interest yourself in the days of the Golden Horde, discovering the oldest mosques of the capital. We offer you an exclusive opportunity to touch the centuries-old history of Islamic culture due to our tour of Muslim places of Moscow with a professional guide. Duration of the tour is about 5 hours.

A private guide will meet you at the hotel, from where you will go on a sightseeing tour of the Muslim places of Moscow. On your way, the guide will tell you a brief history of the city and the Moscow metro.

Your tour will start at Bolshaya Ordynka Street. The guide will tell you about the origin of Muslim culture in the heart of Russia. Then you will proceed to the Zamoskvorechye district - the main center of Tatar Muscovy, where the old streets still remember the names of its former inhabitants. In addition, you will observe the oldest mosque of modern Moscow, the Historical Mosque, as well as numerous mansions that belonged to wealthy Muslim merchants of the 19-20 centuries, Salih Yerzin and Shamsi Asadullayev.

Our journey continues by visiting one of the most incredible temples in Moscow built in the 20th century - the Cathedral Mosque on Prospekt Mira. Its two main minarets have a height of almost 80 meters, which currently makes it one of the highest mosques in Russia and Europe. You will be amazed by more than 320 walls and ceiling chandeliers made of crystal, of different sizes and shapes, as well as by the shining golden domes. In good weather, you can enjoy stunning views of the panorama of Moscow and take memorable photos from the observation deck of the mosque. The last monument of Islamic culture on our way will be Memorial Mosque on Poklonnaya Hill, built in 1997 in memory of the Muslim soldiers who died in the Great Patriotic War. At the end of your tour guide will accompany you to the nearest metro station, from where you can continue your independent walk around Moscow.
