Encounters with Moscow's

histories and culture makers

Provodnik is the Russian word for 'guide', but it can also
stand for 'mediator', 'transmitter', and 'gatekeeper'.

Provodnik is an agency for cultural research and travel.
We focus on opening a gateway to contemporary Moscow life
through a sensitively curated series of personal encounters with its
intricate histories and culture makers in their native habitats.

We offer a carefully arranged bouquet of architectural, historical,
gastronomic, urban, and artistic contexts. A delicate touch
informed by in-depth research and intimate knowledge.
