Original Text: 7 Great Things in Moscow


First impression
Moscow impressions start to form a long before departure, based on feedback and advice of friends and relatives.
But actually you will get your own first impression when you have the opportunity to see the Russian words through the eyes of a stranger ? they are rather long and consist of bizarre characters of Cyrillic alphabet. Who believes himself capable of traveling independently, he should learn Russian online to be ready for a reopening of the alphabet at the Moscow airport. Time spent in queues in front of passport control, just perfect for this.


Architecture

Moscow architecture is very rich! From the Kremlin and Luxuriously mansions of 18-19 centuries to Stalin's constructivism and modern skyscrapers.
Be sure to visit Moscow Izmailovo Park. It is unique, and the largest park in Europe, located in the city. Also advise when you to get to the metro station "Izmailovo Park" exit and walk around the island, where the Silver-Grape ponds located just on the island of Virgin Cathedral itself. This is unusual and lovely place, especially in summer.
Streets
Amazing for a resident of any small town is also the size of Moscow - for example, the street with 8 rows of cars! First, on such streets you should not travel alone as a very fast as you need to be used to rapidly opening up new bands.
People
Yet apart from the historical monuments and architectural ensembles there are much more beautiful, can be seen in Moscow. First, very elegantly dressed ( especially women) Russians. As a rule they follow the latest fashion and often prefer high heeled shoes.
You also may view miscellaneous public here . In the center of the supermarket you can meet people not only from Siberia and the Caucasus, but also "comrades" from the fraternal countries such as Vietnam, Sudan and Cuba.
Restaurants
You will get a lot of fun,visiting restaurants in Moscow.Almost every country of UN represents here! To the list of these countries can add all the former soviet republics. So, you have a good chance to try Byelorussian dranici, Armenian basturma or Georgian satsivi. And you discover everywhere a 24-hour restaurants , cafes and supermarkets are working around the clock, as well as offering orders for home delivery "online".
Markets
Be sure to visit a typical Moscow market, it is better to do it alone, to really understand how well can look vegetables as they can be fresh and tasty!


Moscow chocolate
You can find here are a few Russian producers of chocolates, whose products seem relatively cheap, truly worth a try. Especially from Chocolate factory "Krasny Oktyabr" which comes from the Russian Empire time!

Goods
In fact, here is everything you want to buy. I have never seen so many commercials expensive brands, like in Moscow, but here everything is at least as expensive as in London or Milan.
-
Sure, to feel and love Moscow, you must be born here, live and see it fully , in winter and summer , both day and night, on weekdays and weekends?
Anyway, come again, walk around the city on weekends, when the capital calms down from the crazy everyday life and you'll get an unforgettable impressions.

Time spent in queues in front of passport control is just perfect for this.

Architecture:

Moscow architecture is very rich. From the Kremlin and the luxurious mansions of the 18th and 19th centuries to Stalin's constructivism and modern skyscrapers.

Be sure to visit Moscow's Izmailovo Park, located in the city. It is unique, and the largest park in Europe. From the metro station "Izmailovo Park" exit, walk around the island of the Virgin Cathedral where the Silver-Grape ponds are located. This is an unusual and lovely place, especially in summer.

Streets:

Amazing for a resident of any small town is the size of Moscow. For example, the street with 8 rows of cars! On such streets you should not travel very fast as you need to be prepared for the rapid opening up of new lanes.

People:

Apart from the historical monuments and architectural ensembles there is much more beauty to be seen in Moscow. First, very elegantly dressed (especially women) Russians. As a rule they follow the latest fashion and often prefer high heeled shoes.
