Moscow City Hall Tours



The Moscow City Hall building located at Tverskaya Street, 13 is planned to be open for free daily tours. The head of the Moscow Department of Safety Regulation and Anti-corruption Alexey Mayorov reported this to “Izvestiya” during Moscow Days in Vienna. It is assumed that the guided group tours will take place every two hours in the offices, which kept the 18th century interior. Now the entrance to the town hall is possible only twice a year: in Museum Day and in the Day of the Protection of Monuments and Attractions.

According to Мr. Mayorov there are no obstacles for organizing excursions to the town hall, because virtually all the city management working in the building has moved to “Usadba Centre” business center located nearby. “The only thing necessary to work through is the issue of the organization of excursions in terms of logistics, because not all the rooms are of interest and historical value. For example, one can conduct free guided tours every two hours, the Mayor said. – Moreover, the opening of the City Hall for the public is quite logical after the decision of Russian President Vladimir Putin on the demolition of the Kremlin’s 14th Corp and the opening of the tourist passage through the Spasskaya Tower.”
