Week 1 Traced Map. Hi everyone! I am Aslan from Moscow, I build homes. Khitrovka area of Moscow is one of few places where one can see the ancient Moscow with its historical street network and churches at every corner. The area was a shelter for escaped convicts, broken citizens, criminals and other hard up people. Many Russian writers went there for plots of their stories. Now it is a nice and safe corner of Moscow, great for walking tours.
