You will go inside Victory museum after a walk outside. The museum guide will show you a rich exposition of the museum. In total, it has over 6000 artefacts. Don't worry you won't need to learn about each and every object! The story will be built about the topic of about the Great Patriotic War, which for Russian people has no less importance as the World War II. The guide will tell you about the great and sad victory and heroic deed for those who fought the battles of the Great Patriotic War.  Strong emotions may appear at 3D historical panorama "Fight for Berlin" and a film showed on the walls and ceiling of Hall of Fame. The exhibition is a perfect illustration of how strong the memory of the war is in Russian society.

The guide will teach you the correct way to drink a shot of real Russian vodka and make a toast as locals do. Of course, we want you feel good the next day, that's why you also will have some appetizers and pickles. Finally, a truly Russian drink nastoika will be at the table, paired with suluguni, a white Georgian cheese

Our guide will meet you at hotel lobby a little later than usual. (between 12pm and 3pm- this tour can substitute lunch)
Local food market tour (3 hrs)-- You will take a ride to the part of Moscow where tourists would hardly go. It’s not dangerous, it’s just further from the center. :) You will be able to see a building that we call a ship and a building in the form of flower. However, our reason to go there is food. Our menu for the day will include sour, spicy, cheesy and sweet treats for your delectation. We hope you’re hungry! We’ll start with nature’s bounty: Russian honey served with herbs and berries. Next it’s on to appetisers and you’ll try the freshest cheeses and curd from the Caucasian region. Then it’s on to two proper Russian delicacies. First is smoked lard, which sounds a bit odd to the western palate, but trust us, it’s rich, fulfilling and delicious! Then, red caviar from the island of Sakhalin, an absolute must-eat while in Moscow.We’ll then head south to explore our favourite dishes from Uzbekistan and Dagestan, pilaf and chudu (scones) with cheese or pumpkin, finishing off with tea and pies. We recommend the sweet pie with poppy seeds. Yummy!
Happy and full, you’ll be guided to the hotel or you can of course stay and shop for tasty souvenirs too!
