I thought it could be an interesting thing to write about different cities as a new city means new emotions, new experience and new adventures.
I am originally from Russia, but Moscow is not my city, that’s why when I first arrived then I was amazed. So I decided to share my feelings about this City.
And the city is actually huge: only within the city frame there are more than 12 ml people, and if we take also the suburbs area then the population could be counted as 20 ml. Just to compare there are 1.5 ml people in Vienna.
Moscow is extremely big and breath-taking, however it is hard to move there from point A to B if you are a pedestrian.The roads are really wide and transportation system is more adjust to cars rather than to people. The prices are also quite high. You could easily spend there 200 Euro per day without even noticing. However, if we deduct these two factors, then I should say that Moscow definitely deserves visiting.
Kremlin is of course the most well-known and popular sightseeing place in Moscow. The territory it occupies is truly giant, so be ready to spend there at least 4 hours. Next to Kremlin there are several shopping malls, the governmental buildings, the most luxurious hotels, and may other interesting places.
If you are a church-lover, then Moscow is your city: personally I haven’t been yet in another city that has more churches than Moscow. The entrance to all of them is for sure for free and there you could not only take beautiful pictures and enjoy the originality of Russian architecture, but also learn a bit of the Russian history as there are always so stories that you can read.
If you are an art-lover, then Moscow goes for you too. Simply, take Tretiakovskaya Gallery – the hugest art exhibition that collects not only the most famous paintings of Russian artists but also treasures of other cultures.
Wow…Seems that I could write much more about this city. So let’s stop here for now, and I will continue in my next blog.
