Travel to Moscow, Russia – Episode 175

categories: europe travel

The Amateur Traveler talks to John from Dallas about traveling to Moscow.

We talk about Red Square, the Kremlin, the towers of Saint Basil’s cathedral, nightlife, the National History Museum, Cold War Museum and Russian women in mini-skirts.

John who knows only two words of Russian still finds it easy enough to both get around in and fall in love with this somewhat mysterious city. Just think how much much he would like it if he visited Moscow in Summer.

I highly recommend to visit a space museum in Moscow. There is a lot of unique and interesting exhibits of the Russia’s golden years in the space.
