Join our Free Soviet Tour Of Moscow and discover a collage of history which includes everything from massive social change and revolutions, to times of war, slavery, poverty, and even political terror.

Hear about Czar Nicholas II’s abdication of power in 1917 and how the writing of one book, Das Kapital, reshaped the political thoughts of the day and initiated a new type of governing in Russia and the world. Discover how the impact of this philosophy was put into place as we go through the intricacies of the Revolution of 1917, and the rise of Vladimir Lenin and The Bolsheviks.

Learn how Russia, now called the Soviet Union, grew from a peasant society into a military and industrial super-power, and how the often-referred-to as “Great Leader of Russia,” Joseph Stalin, was also associated with political terror on many levels.

With each step taken on our Soviet Tour Of Moscow you will be turning over pages upon pages of Russia’s incredibly complex political history, from both the formation and collapse of the USSR, to a Soviet heritage that is still present in everyday Russian life, and fresh in the minds of its people.

In the famous words of Fyodor Tyutchev:

For the insight of Russia you should not use your brain.
And measurement of Russia in common yards is vain.
It has a very special and very unique gist…
A great belief in Russia you ought just to persist!
