Favorite children’s characters sound the route.

Portal “Get to know Moscow”prepared a series of routes for children. The first will be an audio tour of Red Square. The route consists of six points. During the walk, the characters of children’s encyclopedias conduct a game dialogue and tell the children and their parents about the sights of the main square of the country. For example, the participants of the excursion will learn about which treasures are kept in the Historical Museum, what the Resurrection Gates were used for, who and what traded at the Kremlin walls, and why Moscow was called white-stone. During an exciting walk, they will also tell you about where all the roads start from, how the State Department Store was built and how many towers the Kremlin has. After completing each point on the route, children will be able to check their knowledge and answer questions. And after that, take part in the drawing and get a prize – a children’s electric scooter.

The Red Square audio guide is the first interactive route within the special project, maximally adapted for a younger audience. The route is voiced by some of the favorite children’s characters, so the children will definitely not be bored with studying history. In total, within the framework of the special project, three educational excursions are planned – the next walks with the same heroes will take place along Stary Izmailovo and the territory of VDNKh. In total, “Know Moscow” has more than 180 thematic routes in various districts of the capital, all of them are available both on the portal and in the mobile application.

The audio tour is dedicated not only to the history of the very center of Moscow, but also to architectural monuments. In an interactive form, children will be able to learn the names of architectural elements and signs of different styles, as well as trace the development of the city – from the first chronicle mention of Moscow to the present day. The format of the audio tour is more lively and understandable for young Muscovites and is able to interest them in studying the history of the city and its architecture.

The special project and routes for children were created with the support of the Departments of Culture and Cultural Heritage, Mosrazvitiya, VDNKh and the Moscow State United Museum-Reserve.

“Get to know Moscow” is a joint project of Moscow departments information technologies, culture, cultural heritage, education and science… The interactive city guide contains photographs and descriptions of over two thousand buildings, 670 monuments, 335 museums, 21 virtual tours and 85 quests.
