National House of the Fans of Mexico in Moscow

The Gostiny Dvor (The Old Merchant Court), built in the 1790s-1830s, is a historical monument located in the heart of Moscow (Il’inka Street, 4), a few hundred meters from the famous Red Square. Today, it is a large recreation, business and retail center.

During the 2018 World Cup in Russia, this building houses the National House of the Fans of Mexico (from June 14 to July 15). The entrance is free. Here you can taste national Mexican cuisine, get acquainted with the culture of this country and of course watch football. The Gostiny Dvor on Google Maps. Photos by: Nefer.
