From Russia with Love – Moscow’s Architecture

June 21, 2011

Never in a million years did I ever imagine travelling to Russia. Simply because to me Russia was what James Bond films were made of, or 80’s films depicting Cold war ruthlessness, so it was never high up on the holiday wish list.

Now, with so many Russians choosing southern Spain as their fav holiday destination it made sense that you can fly pretty easily and cheaply to Russia too.

If you know me, you’ll know that I love any opportunity to travel, so when a friend got a job as a television presenter on an English speaking channel over there I’d purchased my ticket before you could say Dmitry Medvedev and within three hours I was in Moscow!

I only managed to visit Moscow and St Petersburg, but given the chance I’d definitely explore more of its 6,592,800 square miles (Russia is the largest country in the world!).

This week I’m sharing a handful of images from my Moscow leg of the trip.

I hope you like them 🙂

These two images are of the Stalin’s skyscrapers, known as the Seven Sisters as there are seven such buildings around the city!
