We took in Red Square and therein the Lenin Mausoleum, the shops, St Basils. We toured the Kremlin, sight saw at night, kissed saints in the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, shot guns in cold war bunkers, delighted at the chandeliers throughout the metro and ogled the old royal coaches, bible covers and Faberge eggs in the Royal Armory. We drank vodka by the plenty and took in the old soviet monuments, collected from around the country and moved into the Fallen Monument Park.
The one thing that surprised me the most about Moscow were the posers and the photographers. All through the parks, young girls and ladies were posing (Tyra style) with their friends taking photos. It was a constant photo shoot.
An intriguing city, full of contrasts and certainly worth a visit (but not somewhere I'd ever call home)
Have you ever had any desire to travel to Russia?
