Traveler & photographer with a passion for everything
Rainy weather and cloudy skies gave a cold welcome to me upon my arrival in Moscow.
But that did not dampen my spirit to explore this historic city. In just three days, I managed to cover a number of famous spots, including iconic Red Square. Stunning architecture and fascinating culture make Moscow a unique cosmopolitan city in the world.
From bar-hopping to clubbing, from shopping to capturing the beauty of the city, I did my best to make it a memorable as well as fun trip.
But what intrigued me was the lack of western travellers. Almost everywhere I found a lot of Chinese and Japanese tourists, taking selfies 🙂
Moscow University. Is not it pretty ?
Cathedral of Christ the Saviour
GUM (department store)
Saint Basil’s Cathedral
What I liked most about the city: Bars and their lip-smacking foods (My favourite – Russian Salad).
Wide roads, big buildings and exceptionally stylish people. Even I found a cab driver very charming. 🙂
What I did not like: A big big communication gap between local people and travellers.
I tried to communicate with local people but failed miserably due to lack of English knowledge. At the same time, a couple of people smiled at me, said ‘hello’ especially in bars. 😛
One recommended place – Izmailovsky Flea Market. You can find authentic Russian products, including Russian dolls and leather jackets, at cheaper rate, compared to other places.
What I missed: Moscow’s iconic metro stations as most of the time I travelled by taxis. 😦
Love to party? – Head to Bolotnaya Naberezhnaya area, where you can find a plethora of nightclubs there, but I opted for RED.
Recommended drink – Khortytsa Ice Vodka (smooth and sweet)
So this is Moscow. Accept it as it is and you will like it the way I liked it 🙂
PS:– I booked my Moscow trip with Visit Russia and I must say they are very good at managing a trip. Highly recommended.
