Me and the City. Part II

Continuing my story about Moscow, I would like to highlight that this city can easily pull you to its flow and never let you go. I know so many people who come there for, let’s say an internship and then don’t want to leave the city, so they stay there for indefinite period of time.

I should admit that this is also almost the case with me. If I have to leave Vienna for some reasons, I would go to Moscow to pursue my goals there. Moscow is a huge cosmopolitan as it was said in my previous post that offers not only various career opportunities, but also different options for your leisure time and personal life. In the first part of my story I mentioned art galleries and churches, but there is so much more.

The Moscow State University offers a significant variety of educational fields that you could focus on. There are also programs in English so there are opportunities for international students also. In addition, the building of the University is one of the official places for sightseeing as it catches your breath with its tremendous size and general look.

Moscow offers a lot for students, including alternative lounge places where they could chill and relax after studying days. Such places are called co-working zones: there you pay for minutes spent in the café, not for snacks or drinks or Wi-Fi. The atmosphere of these places is unique, filled with energy, creativity and spirit of the youth.

Parks are another alternative for spending your free time. For the past couple of years the condition of parks was significantly improved and at the moment there are a lot of entertainments within parks’ territory. You could rent a bike, skates, ping-pong sets and other stuff for different kinds of sport. You could also lie on the grass (which was not allowed before in our country in general) or sit on the benches.

Even with what I have just described there is still so much to do, but I promise to finish in my next post for sure. Enjoy!
