On this guided tour of the Izmailovo Kremlin, you will experience an even more kaleidoscopic district than the famous Kremlin downtown. Your guide will lead you through its multicolored towers straight out of a Russian fairytale. People come here for a taste of national color, ancient Russia and, souvenirs. Izmailovo Market, or Izmailovsky Vernisazh (from French vernissage) as the locals call it, is a genuine treasure trove of curiosities and popular amongst Muscovites. The wooden complex completed in 2007, was not built for protection as its name suggests. It was established as a cultural center and marketplace loosely modeled after traditional Russian architecture and fairytale depictions of Old Russia. The colorful and bustling complex is home to several single-subject museums. One is dedicated to Russian folk art, another to bread, and yet another to vodka. The tour will take you to the Vodka Museum where you can take part in a vodka tasting.
You are going to discover the cultural complex modeled after Old Russia in a small group with a guide, telling you all about the history behind the Izmailovo Kremlin.
