I have spent the day with guide getting to know the Moscow city centre, especially the red square and Kremlin.
The city is very impressive, and there is a lot to see. One day is not merly enough to get to know Moscow.
The first things that you have to make your aquaintance with is the subway systems. The system is the biggest in the world, and it is very impressive….
Most of the stations is from the late 1930, and up to the 1960`s. They contain a lot of Sovjet era art and here are a good example.
The buildings and architecture is quite large and grand. Like my guide said: “Everything is big in Russia”.
But the city also finds time to hide away nice backally streets made for walking with a bit more relaxed attitude. This street is behind the Bolsjoy theatre and opera. Since I am new to the city, I dont remember street names.
This fountain is outside the Bolsjoy. It speaks for it self.
Then of course it is the Red Square. It is so vast and impressive. Here are a few shots trying to catch the feeling
This picture shows the spot of a special historian event remembered from my childhood. Here is the brigde outside the Red Square where the german Mattias Rust landed its plane in 1988.
Outside the Kremlin walls are there a lot a beautiful park areas.
Outside the entrance of the Kremlin.
Inside the Kremlin, there are great building, holding both old and new history. Alle the way back to from the forging of Russia , the Sovjet era and untill present day.
And to conclude the tour. Here are an obious tourist attraction. The Tsar bell, on the ground outside the Ivan the great bell tower.
