On Tuesday, June 17, we will have an excursion and a conference banquet.
The excursion will consist of three parts. We will start with a cruise along the Moscow river: Moscow State University, Luzhniki stadium, Russian Academy of Science, the Kremlin, Novospassky monastery, Bolotnaya Square, the Red October factory. The cruise will begin at 14:30 near Pushkinsky pedestrian bridge, in Gorky park.
At 17:00 we will have an excursion the Cathedral of the Christ the Saviour. We will climb the Cathedral to enjoy a spectacular view of Moscow. Men should wear long trousers, and women should wear long skirts and cover their heads. (It is possible to rent clothes in the Cathedral.)
Finally, we will walk to the restaurant "Jerusalem", where we will have the banquet. On our way we will see the Pushkin museum of Fine Arts, the Russian State Library, and the Kremlin.
The restaurant "Jerusalem" is located at the Bolshaya Bronnaya Synagogue. In spite of its name and location, it serves the cuisine of the Caucasus (the South of Russia and nearby countries), which is very popular in Russia.
