Tank Excursion and Bazooka Shooting in Moscow

31 reviews
No, we are not kidding! We will bring you to ride a tank on an off-road training path, shoot Russian military weapons and fire off a bazooka. What’s more? We include an army field Russian lunch, with vodka, and a visit to the park patriot! Come get some good old Russian fun in a crazy 8-hour excursion full of surprises.

This building is one of a few KGB buildings in Moscow but I'm told it was the original one. It just looks like an ordinary building from the outside with no symbolic motifs or flags to signify it has anything to do with the Russian Secret Service. Good photo opportunities to say you've been there.

this is a fairly cut and dried museum of the KGB and some of it's activities, nothing modern. The odd synchronicity is that the exhibit the mock up of a passive rf listening device that was installed inside the wood frame of a painting, the actual device is on display at the spy museum in Washington DC.

There building and museum are closed to the public. Had been trying to find a guided tour of the inside but was told by a guide yesterday there are no plans for the building to be opened to the public soon.

FSB/KGB, same difference. You can't go in, and probably you don't want too either. If you are a Russian History buff, you can't not go and just stand and "feel" the place. This is where "it" was all done, and may still be, although "that"probably been outsourced to Uzbeckistan by this time. You can walk around the entire building --you will even find a little chapel tucked away, (they were baptizing a baby the day I was there). When you make the full circle, you will also end up in front of a very old elegant, famous bank, that somehow made it through the revolutions etc. Also the poet Vladimir Mayakovsky's last apt. is almost directly across from the prison. That also is closed, for renovation, and has been for some time. I wonder are they renovating the apt. or his reputation?

If you are in this area of Moscow (central, near Red Square) this has to be worth a 5-minute detour to get a look at this building close up, given its history. Standing outside and thinking of the various stories about this building, you cannot fail to be affected by its intimidating presence. As far as I could ascertain, no entry permitted.
