In September, the Discover Moscow portal conducted special project for children… Young Muscovites walked around the main square of the country, learned new things about VDNKh and the Izmailovo estate. In total, the routes were passed more than almost six thousand times.
The most popular became walk along Red Square… It was visited 3.5 thousand times. On excursions in Izmailovo estate visited 1.3 thousand times, and a walk along VDNKh territorycommitted a little more than 1.1 thousand times.

The most successful participant got the main prize – a children’s electric scooter. To participate in the super prize drawing, it was necessary to register on the portal and complete one of the routes, answering all the questions. Prizes were drawn using a random number generator. The results of the competitions and the names of the winners were published on the pages of the Discover Moscow project in social networks.
“Teaching children about the cultural heritage of the capital is an important and very difficult task. For example, when developing a route through Red Square, I had to think carefully about what exactly could surprise and captivate young Muscovites. The interactive audio format turned out to be really in demand. This is evidenced by the figures of the project. Tours will remain available on the Discover Moscow portal, so we hope that many more children will get acquainted with the cultural heritage in the company of the characters from Chevostyk’s children’s books, ”said the head
