Fedor Petrovich Haass during his lifetime was called the "holy doctor". He had a very wide range of activities: he was a surgeon of the Russian Army during the War of 1812, an explorer of mineral springs in the Caucasus, the chief doctor of Moscow prisons and a philanthropist.
During the excursion we will get acquainted with Moscow of the beginning of XIX century, pass through the places in the capital connected with Dr. Haass: Maliy Kazenniy lane, cemetery on Vvedensky hills, visits the landed estate in the village Tishkovo. We will have an opportunity to stroll through the alleys of the unique regular park of the XVIII century, drink mineral water and get closer to the spiritual world of a man, who lived with a motto «Hasten to do good! ».
