Count Karl von Zinzendorf, the commercial counsellor of the Habsburg Empire was beyond doubt one of the most active travellers of the 18th century. In 12 years, he visited Switzerland, Italy, French, Great Britain, Spain, Belgium, and Hungary, as well as distant locations like Portugal, Sicily, or Transylvania. This study focuses on a short episode of his last big trip to Eastern and Northern Europe: his stay in Moscow in August 1774. We believe that Zinzendorf’s experiences in the old Russian capital deserve the attention of not only historians, but wider audiences as well. The reason for this is that as an experienced traveller and expert on economy he could form an unbiased opinion about what he saw and compare it to his experiences in other countries, and he could evaluate the modernization efforts as well.
