LOOKING FOR A HOUSE WITH A VIEW OF THE KREMLIN
In our journey along the quiet side streets of Pokrovka and Myasnitskaya, we will be focusing on the hidden medieval houses (chambers) and churches of Moscow, and also learning more about how they were built: how they managed a suspended ceiling in the 16th century, and what a demountable house is.
During the Looking for a house with a view of the Kremlin tour, you will learn:
- How much money was spent on the construction of these houses, and what amount is it equal to today?
- All about the medieval water supply and other everyday
- Where are the fragments of the most beautiful lost church in Moscow – the Church of the Assumption?
- We go into detail about the features of vaulted ceilings and teach you to recognise and distinguish intersecting, cloistered, basket-handle and trough vaults.
Lots of other construction secrets of pre-Petrine Moscow
