A Walk in Izmailovo

The Romanov Princes received Izmaylovo as a gift from Ivan the Terrible himself, and since then the estate had been transferred from one generation to the next. In the 17th century, Izmailovo was converted into an island by creating dams on two rivers: the Serebryanka and the Steklyanka. Having passed the bridge that crosses the Silver Grape Pond, you will instantly feel the tranquility that permeates the entire island. This is a place where one epoch gives place to another. First you encounter with the 20th , revolutionary century: you are in the town named after Bauman. Having caught the sight of the Memorial Arch built of cast iron to commemorate the victory of the Russian army over Napoleon, you will “plunge” into the 19th century. You will be able to see the buildings and unique structures of the Imperial poorhouse, and visit the Cathedral of Protection of the Blessed Virgin.

Apart from historic buildings and monuments, you will be surrounded by natural parks and gardens. Beyond the island, you can visit the Izmailovsky Kremlin Entertainment Centre with many thematic museums and fairs. You can see the Palace of a Russian Meal - a unique creation of architect Ushakov, and the Church of St. Nicholas, which is the highest wooden operating church in Moscow.
