Red October Complex (Krasniy Oktyabr) Tours

Once a chocolate factory producing some of Russia’s most popular chocolate, the Red October Complex was the first industrial site in Moscow to be converted into artistic space. Located on Bolotny Island in the Moscow River, the complex itself dates back to the 19th century. In recent years, it has been transformed into a multi-purpose space featuring art and photo galleries, designers’ studios, television and web media headquarters and a variety of bars and cafes. It is also home to the Strelka Institute for Media, Architecture and Design, which offers workshops, lectures and concerts for the public. 

The Red October Complex is especially popular on the weekends with bars and restaurants like Art Akademiya, Dome and Bar Strelka, the latter of which donates its proceeds to the Strelka Institute. It also boasts a lively clubbing scene for those looking to explore Moscow’s famous nightlife. And chocolate lovers can still pick up some of the beloved Red October chocolates from a small shop in the complex.

Practical Info

The Red October Complex is within walking distance from the Kremlin—simply take the bridge across the Moscow River and turn right. Alternatively, take the footbridge to the right of the Christ the Savior Cathedral. The nearest metro station, across from the Christ the Savior Cathedral, is Kropotkinskaya.
