April 20, 2020 18:32

The Moscow Committee on Tourism, together with the Department of Cultural Heritage, presents a series of thematic lectures, virtual tours and videos about famous architectural monuments in the project #Москвастобой. All of them are available on the stayhome.moscow platform.

Without leaving the house, it is possible to visit the Petrovsky Palace, the Metropol, the Pashkov House and other unique architectural monuments; watch educational videos about the restoration, as well as listen to thematic lectures.

“We are very pleased that the #Москвастобой project is constantly expanding and new formats are appearing, and new partners are joining. Let me remind you that the site stayhome.moscow has the opportunity to see the production of the Moscow Ballet Theater, and you can explore the capital by watching virtual walks from the Moscow project through the eyes of an engineer, recently launched  original tours from the Moscow Museum and much more. Many people are  forced to stay at home now, and at this time, the most important thing is to share knowledge and emotions with each other,” Ekaterina Pronicheva, chairman of the Moscow Tourism Committee says.



Now residents can listen to five lectures from the Moscow Code series devoted to: theatrical Moscow, metropolitan regional studies, Muscovite language, city signs and posters, the image of Moscow in literature.

Also, 24 short videos dedicated to the conservation of Moscow architectural monuments are available to users. One can evaluate the result of a comprehensive restoration of the Karataeva-Morozov estate in Leontyevsky Lane, see how the Golden Spike and Friendship of Peoples fountains have changed at VDNKh, as well as check how the architect Melnikov’s house in Krivoarbatsky Lane looks from the inside and much more.
