Kitay Gorod

It may translate as “China Town”, but in fact, this area in the center of Moscow has nothing to do with China or the Chinese! For answers and fascinating facts and figures on Medieval Moscow, this week’s culture show is for you! On the program “hit list”, Martyn Andrews soaks up the May sunshine by exploring the quaint area to the east of Red Square. He visits the old walls, Gostiny Dvor and the Romanov Palace Chambers to name a few. Guide book in hand, let’s explore one of the most ancient areas of the Russian Capital.
