Moscow (August 2017)

/ Wednesday, 20 September 2017 /




St Basils on a hot summers day.
This orthodox church is only 20 years old! I have to say it is blindingly gold during the day-time and enormous in relation to the other cathedrals.
Izmailovsky Market. This place is packed with flea market stalls, paintings, kebab stores and antiques/artefacts (probably mostly fake...).
Paintings for sale in the flea market.
University of Moscow towers above the city.
Doofus ft. Russian furry hat complete with hammer and sickle.
Inside the markets.
Very intricate Matryoshka dolls. These ones had 10 parts!
Moscow sling cocktails on top of the Ritz on my birthday. Hello quarter of a century!

Curious sculptures in Gorky Park.
Many people were cycling, picnicking and roller-blading throughout the lawns. Moscow would a lovely city to live, if only we spoke fluent Russian!
TSUM department store where they had great ice-creams.

On route to Lenin's mausoleum (post-fighting rude tourists)
Inside the Kremlin/ fortress! This section is made of 5 cathedrals, several museums as well as parliament.
Inside the cathedrals of the Kremlin.
Sunsets in this city were incredible.
