More Pictures from Moscow

Anonymous left a comment in the previous post asking to see more pictures from Moscow and I'm happy to do it.
 
I must say that our photos fall into roughly three categories. Touristy stuff, "everyday life" shots and personal memories that I'm not going to bore you with, they mean a lot to me but nobody else would care.
 
I'll start with the touristy pictures. First of all we stopped at the observation point by the Moscow University. Pardon bad picture quality, I'm not going to quit my day job to become a photographer.
 
I love these buildings, such a typical Moscow cityscape.
 

I was surprised to know that these were free! Normally you have to insert a coin for 2-second viewing. Nice! Kid certainly enjoyed it.


Kazan Cathedral, Red Square. The weather sucked as you can see, but still, it was impressive.


Saint Basil's cathedral, Red Square.


Arbat - a pedestrian street in the historical center of Moscow. I have no idea what this pink person was selling. Should have asked I guess.


Church of the Saviour on the Sands just off Arbat.


You see churches everywhere, not just in Moscow. This is driving through Pavlovsky Posad (in the province where we lived).

 
 
This post is getting picture heavy so I'll stop for now.
"Everyday life" pictures to follow. And I finally learned how to resize my photos using "paint" program. Yeah for me!

  3. Thank you so much!
    Anita, I hope you enjoy your trip when you go to Moscow. I have St.Petersburg on my list now (that's where I'm from). Russia has changed so much, and from what I could see, changed for the best.

    Hi Cami, I'm going to see your blog now :)
