My Moscow apartment is available for rent starting beginning of July 2015, 55 th. roubles/month

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 building has its own website, where you can get acquainted with it more closely.

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 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.

Two rooms. The second one is a small cozy bedroom. Double bed, wardrobe cabinet.


Office-living room. A fold-out couch, large desk, computer, printer, internet, Wi-Fi, air conditioner.


The loft is above the living room, and is set up as a living space. Think of it as the third room, suitable for guests, loved by children and cats.


The kitchen corner in the living room. Washing machine, refrigerator, electric plate, microwave oven.

An electric heater has been installed in the bathroom as a backup to keep you clean and warm in case of hot water supply interruptions.


A huge common corridor of the “Soviet communal” type. The sort where children can ride around on their bicycles.

Speaking of bicycles, the vicinity of the apartment is ideal for cycling, and you are welcomed to this old bicycle.

  1. I can’t recommend this apartment highly enough! My husband and I rented this apartment for a month in 2012. It is everything Pasha describes and more. Only minutes walk to the Metro, supermarkets, many restaurants and cafes. I loved being able to walk into ‘the centre’ and Red Square. The apartment itself is very comfortable with everything a traveler might need. I will certainly seek to rent this apartment again (on the off chance that it is available) when we next visit Moscow.
