The new thematic tour is oriented towards students and adults.

The route of the tour goes through the New Kremlin Square, where the center of religious life of Muscovy — the Chudov and the Ascension Monasteries were found in the 14th century. Later there appeared a residence of Russian Emperors — the Small Nicholas' Palace.

The architectural ensembles were demolished during the Soviet period and now remain only on the old plans of the Kremlin, engravings, watercolour paintings and photographs. Recent archaeological research made a significant contribution to the study of the lost monuments. Two-meter open pits behind the showcases allow visitors see the results of grand-scale archaeological excavations, i.e. fragments of demolished building bases, paving of the 16th century and the tombstones of the 17th century. There is also see a visual backdrop recreating the appearance of the Moscow Kremlin of the past.

During this tour guests will have an opportunity visit our permanent display in the Annunciation Cathedral 'Treasures and Antiquities of the Moscow Kremlin', exposition in the South annex of the Archangel Cathedral devoted to the Ascension monastery and the one in the side-chapel of St Varus (only warm season), where the shrine with relics of St Euphrosyne of Moscow are kept.
