Here are some pictures from my Russia trip.
My trip was centered around Moscow from where I took trips to Black Sea, Golden Ring cities and St. Petersburg. I had a friend in Moscow, which made traveling very convenient. 🙂
The colorful onion domes are distinctive and no picture of Russia is complete without visiting this place, right on the edge of Red Square.
Sochi is Russia’s summer resort, located on Black Sea. It is very convenient to take a ship across the sea and land in Turkey (a route that must be done some day!)
A charm among Golden Ring cities, consisting of ancient Russian orthodox churches, this is one of the oldest religious structures in Russia. It is located about 200 km north-east of Moscow and is not very touristic.
Imagine standing on an escalator for two minutes straight. Yes, you need to do that in order to reach the metro platform 🙂
St. Petersburg (Petrograd) is full of European architecture and beautiful artistic stuff sprinkled all over its canals and bridges.
Barely 30 km from the Finnish border, I was expecting to see some Vikings with their horn hats and long boats, but alas.
My last day in Moscow was as perfect as it could get 🙂 Thanks Evgeny!
