Too bad but our wonderful tenants of two years are leaving us. Thus this Moscow apartment is available for rent starting beginning of July 2015. 5-7 min. from Red Square, 2 rooms + loft, air, washing machine.
Long-term only, 55 th. roubles/month including utilities.
The building was put up by the vodka oligarch Smirnoff in 1903. Window of our apartment, looking onto the canal, are circled in red on the photo above.
The apartment is quiet, cozy, and charming. Ideal for academics and creative types. All the conditions for intellectual and creative work, as well as romance.
For years I’ve been renting this place out to travellers from abroad, short-term. In the last two years an artistic couple from St. Petersburg, Xenia and Leo, have been occupying it. You can speak with them on how it is to live there.
In view of the fact that apartment owners (us) are presently far from Moscow, we are looking for long-term tenants who will appreciate the location and the apartment itself, quiet and reliable people, with whom we could transact over distance.
Children and animals are welcomed!
We’ll be happy to answer any questions. Write to firstname.lastname@example.org. Tell us something about yourself. It is important for us who lives there.
No agents please. Do not write to us. Under no conditions will we deal with an agent.
About the apartment:
Ceilings 4m. Large windows overlooking the canal. Very quiet.
Introducing Dimitry Lapa, a translator, a religious history expert, and a programmer. He has greatly helped Alexandra by consulting her for her article on British church history, and I’m trying to return the favour. Here is a summary based on his resume and our correspondence:
Education: Two degrees, one is mathematician-programmer, and another religious studies.
Native Russian, fluent professional English, some German.
Over 100 publications.
But he is out of work. He is blind.

It is Alexandra’s and mine idea to tell the world about him. Please read the text below that consists of fragments of his resume and correspondence with Alexandra. Just read and make a note there is such a person. Who is not asking money from anyone nor shouting around about his situation. He is just a well-qualified expert who wants to find a job to make a living. Perhaps one of you happens to be in a position to help, thus..
