Images of Moscow

Now I’ve had some time to edit them, here are some photos of our time in Moscow.

One of our first stops in Moscow was the reconstructed Cathedral of Christ the Saviour.


Stalin built 7 gothic skyscrapers across the city, now called the Seven Sisters.  This one is a university.  You can imagine them being used in movies like Ghostbusters or Batman…


We were taken to a viewpoiint above the Moscow River, although it was a bit misty because of wet weather.


This is the memorial for the Great Patriotic War (WW2).


We drove past the White House, where Boris Yeltsin had his stand off with the military.


This is the National History Museum, on Red Square.


Our group on Red Square.


Lenin’s Mausoleum in front of the walls of the Kremlin, Red Square.


Dad & Dave in front of St Basil’s, Red Square.



St Basil’s onion domes.


This is one of the Parisian-like streets in the area of Moscow we were staying in.


Some of the Metro stations are works of art in themselves -although many are works of celebration of the Communist Party and Comrade Lenin.
