Private Tour of Moscow -Victory Park and the Novodevichy Convent.
Today you and your Private Moscow Tour Guide will tour the Moscow Metro as you travel to the Museum of the Great Patriotic War.
Built as a memorial to the 2nd World War, the Museum of the Great Patriotic War demonstrates, by its size, the scale to which Russia was affected by this world catastrophe.
The loss of life in the Soviet Union exceeded 25 million. That is more than any other country.
In addition to the awe inspiring mall, monuments and exhibits inside, there are also exhibits of equipment outside.
Whether you are interested military history or not, the scope of this tragedy and the effect it had on millions of survivors, makes this Private Moscow tour of the Museum of the Great Patriotic War (Victory Park) interesting to everyone.
This famous convent is a picturesque oasis in the middle of a bustling city.
Peter The Great, imprisoned his sister Sophia in the Novodevichy Convent in an attempt to curtail her efforts to seat their brother Ivan on the Russian thrown.
In more modern times, the cemetery near the Novodevichy Convent has become the final resting place of many famous Russians including:
- Nikita Khrushchev
- Boris Yeltsen
- Stalin's wife Nadezhda Alliluyeva-Stalin
- Sergei Prokofiev
- Dmitri Shostakovitch
Approximate duration of the tour is 6 hours.
Time will be taken for lunch (not included)
This tour can operate any day except Monday.
If you would like to visit the Memorial Synagogue and Holocaust Museum while in Moscow, it is located just a few hundred yards behind the Museum of the Great Patriotic War.
You may substitute the Memorial Synagogue and Holocaust Museum for the New Maiden Convent if you wish.
For those of Jewish faith or anyone whose intellectual curiosity pushes them to learn, the Memorial Synagogue is a very interesting visit. I was there in Feb. 2012 with one of our guides, Oleg.
We braved -30 C temperatures to go from the metro to the Synagogue where I was completely taken by surprise.
The modern structure of the Memorial Synagogue in Moscow is in a wooded section of the expanse around the Museum of the Great Patriotic War.
When we entered, a historian who works for the Synagogue, Katya, gave us the personal tour.
In addition to being creatively designed on the interior with Jewish religious symbols in metal-art, the basement houses a high technology museum. Katya's commentary on the evolution of the Jews in Russian society and their participation as combatants and victims was riveting.
I highly recommend taking this tour regardless of your faith.
