Russia Photo Gallery

I went to Russia for four weeks, and what a blast I had! Travelling here as very rewarding and I enjoyed checking out cosmopolitan cities such as Moscow and St. Petersburg. However since I studied Russian for four months and was able to have general conversations very well, I also explored smaller cities and countrysides such as the for Russian Orthodox spiritual circuit (Golden Ring cities) and taking a third-class sleeper train to Sochi, on the black sea.

↑ At the Red Square

I went to Russia for four weeks en-route from Toronto to Mumbai, and what a blast it was! Travelling here as very rewarding and I enjoyed checking out cosmopolitan cities such as Moscow and St. Petersburg. However since I studied Russian for four months and was able to have general conversations very well, I also explored smaller cities and countrysides such as the for Russian Orthodox spiritual circuit (Golden Ring cities) and taking a third-class sleeper train to Sochi, on the black sea.

Pictures taken using a basic point and shoot camera (Canon Powershot SX100). I also almost exclusively couchsurfed in Russia which totally was the best part.

Pictures that will make you want to travel to Russia right now!


Russian Orthodox Churches

Fascinating onion domes and rising spires distinctive of Russian architecture.


Metro Stations, or Museums!

A visual tour of the Moscow Metro system and its lavish decorations.

Kremlin and the Red Square

Magnificent square that is the heart of Moscow, Russia, and the erstwhile Soviet bloc.


Food!

Despite being mostly vegetarian, I had a great time eating in Russia!


Life in Russian cities

Russian cities looked very functional, with a variety of architecture, from pre-Soviet to Soviet to post Soviet era.


Art, theatre, and hipster stuff

Watching a beautiful ballet show at the famous Bolshoi theatre made this trip really memorable.


Transportation

Some non-sexy stuff, like train tracks and buses, catches my eye. In the parts I travelled to, the public transportation system was great.

Places to see:

Moscow

Moscow is the capital of Russia and it does feel like all roads from the country lead here. It’s a huge city with lots to it!


Around Moscow

Smaller cities on the outskirts of Moscow have lots to offer, and make great day trips.


Golden Ring cities

Visiting old Russian Orthodox Churches at these pilgrimage locations north-east of Moscow.

St. Petersburg

St. Petersburg is a beautiful city with lovely architecture; it feels like a giant museum.


Around St. Petersburg

Visiting old churches at Veliky Novgorod, Catherine’s Palace at Pushkin, and Vyborg on the Finnish border.


Sochi

I took a third-class sleeper train to Sochi, Russia’s summer resort city on the Black sea and the site of 2014 Winter Olympics.
