The Soviet-era and all its political, technological, social development... is largely unknown in the West. But there is no doubt that from imperial Russia to the USSR the progress and development of the country multiplied exponentially.
Its model of development was based on the common good and benefit of the people and not of any particular citizen. Therefore, the state began to control and collectivize enterprises and fields. This model became a great ideological rival to the capitalist world from the 1950s to the 1990s, when the USSR was dissolved.
On our Soviet and communist tour in Moscow, you will learn more about their particular way of life. Meet the country's leaders and prominent figures or the most prominent places in the city related to this era. Discover what the Cold War and the space race was like, or how that union of socialist states was formed until its fall.
