    These buildings are ones of the highest in Europe. They look very futuristic and this is the only part of Moscow with this kind of Dubai-style architecture. Very impressive view.

    This park is truly amazing. We had limited time only in this place. VDNKh Park is a unique place and worth visiting. The Soviet name VDNKh is an acronym meaning "the Exhibition of the Achievements of the National Economy". We attended Moskvarium, the Dolphin show. The stage setting was impressive with talented artists and amazing performance. I hope to come back again in the near future to roam around and enjoy Ex-Soviet pavilions.

    This circular fountain with 15 gilded statues representing the former USSR states stands in the middle of the VDNH complex (read my detailed review on it).
    The fountain is terrific, although it wasn't working in mid April.
    It's made according to Peterhof palace fountains in St. Petersburg.

    This was our 1st visit to Moscow Cathedral Mosque. The Mosque is specious and majestic. It has a Golden dome, most properly made of Gold. There is a museum inside with old manuscripts, there is a shop too. We have met many ladies from Central Asian countries coming to pray.

    There are several excellent parks in Moscow and Kolomenskoye is one of them. This city has dramatically changed for the better in the course of last ten-fifteen years and this wooden palace is a vivid example of such improvements. Built from scratch in 2010 it is often criticized by Muscovites as a poor replica of a disappeared chef-d'œuvre but for foreigners it's really something to admire.
    We visited it right after covid restrictions had been eased in Moscow, in the second half of January. The building looks as if it came from a Russian fairy-tale - opulent and intricate from the outside but rather simple and practical inside. This is really how our tzars lived in the times passed. They preferred structures made of wood and not of stones or boulders or even bricks, like in the West - Russian winters used to be long and cold.
    Due to covid, tickets still had to be first reserved electronically, through their official site and then, upon arrival, exchanged for hard copies. Ladies working there were nice, friendly and ready-to-help (doubt if they speak English though).
    There's also a spacious and comfortably placed parking right nearby, only a five minutes' walk to the complex.
    Naturally, one might prefer to visit the place in summer, to walk in the park as well, but believe me - it's also great in winter, especially on a sunny day. Entrance fee is ridiculous - just RUR 400 (ca. USD 9).
    Don't miss a kiosk nearby selling excellent Russian drinks, pryanik cakes (made of flour, honey, berries in syrup, sweetened condensed milk, etc.) and other small things.

    Tverskaya St is one of the longest and widest Moscow boulevards running all the way from Belorusskaya station to Alexander gardens which are at the western Kremlin walls.
    The street is super busy with traffic and DO NOT try to cross it, but use the underground passageways. Superb massive style architecture can be seen along it with renovated facades with many stores, restaurants, hotels,...etc.
    Our Grand Marriot hotel was there which I highly recommend.

    Enjoying Moscow from the highest point, is beautiful. You will need your passport to get in. Security is very tight. We went through check points, twice.
    As you reach the top; and this is great for people with the fear of heights; you will see down through “glass floor”. The rotating floor around the café is nice.

    The branch of the Maly theater on Bolshaya Ordynka near the Sadovoe koltso (ring) and the metro stations "Dobryninskaya" and "Serpukhovskaya" has always been significantly different from the main stage. And the troupe-here often debuted actors who became famous afterwards. Sometimes even students of the theater Institute performed here. And according to the repertoire-if on the main stage there were plays mainly of classical repertoire, then on the Bolshaya Ordynka they often experimented with plays of little-known authors. And the style of performances was more free. But this time we got just for Chekhov's "Cherry orchard" in the traditional setting. The season has just begun. I can't say that we really liked it, however, to watch in such a small, intimate room is nicer, that is for sure.

    Wide and long street just behind the Bolshoi theatre but on the opposite side of the road. Very commercial, with many food courts and street vendors. The buildings are all very old and historic.

    Yes, do come here in early January. Both Orthodox Christmas (07.01.) and Russian New Year (13-14.01) are still ahead and the square is decorated and illuminated up to the hilt. This time around, because of covid, usual kiosks selling all types of snacks, drinks (mostly non-alcoholic) and souvenirs were missing but a huge Christmas tree was still completely smashing - with long glittering marquee-shaped LED garlands streaming downwards and making a fairytale-like canopy over your head.
    There were lots of people around. The funniest thing was that while any open-air business was obviously prohibited, shops and restaurants/cafes - and fountains! - were functioning in full swing in the huge multistoried underground mall beneath. Very Russian way of fighting contangious infection!
    So, welcome next January, when all this corona-schizophrenia is (hopefully) over. To see Manezhnaya during this period is a once-in-your-life opportunity, believe me.
    A must!

    We actually had young children so decided to visit separately (That's how small the queue was) whilst the other half waited. It's free to enter you just have a back check upon entry. No pictures are allowed inside and it's absolute silence. A little surreal but very interesting.

    It is one of the oldest districts of Moscow with narrow streets and lanes, with some good cafes and lots of churches. Generally the mansions in there date back to the XIXth century. I like walking there in spring when lilac bushes are in bloom, or sitting at the table on Zabelina Street on warm summer evenings.

    Us, who visited the Russian capital over the decades, know this hotel as Ukraine.
    It is housed in one of the Seven sisters edifices, and was regarded as the most prestige hotel of the Socialist era.
    With political changes came also the owner changes, and now it belongs to the world famous Radisson chain.
    Nevertheless it kept it's charm, and is still one of capital's most striking buildings right by the Moscow river bend.
    For best views climb the top and have a drink at Mercedes bar, or board a river cruise just beneath the hotel grounds.
