The Trip To The Capital

Fortunately, I had some deeds to complete for two and a half days in Moscow, so I used the chance and decided to see Moscow through my own perspective for the first time — and share it via the blog post with the photographs and commentaries with you.

As the person, who has already lived in the Saint Petersburg city for a year, I wanted to see the capital of Russia — the Moscow city — and understand, why some people love it, while others hate it. Russian citizens still live in the very centralized government, in which Moscow receives almost all the governmental income, while the regions receive almost nothing, and it hugely affects the difference in the level of living, opportunities, and desire of the many citizens, where to live.

Fortunately, I had some deeds to complete for two and a half days in Moscow, so I used the chance and decided to see Moscow through my own perspective for the first time — and share it via the blog post with the photographs and commentaries with you.

When I came to Moscow, I was amazed — there were huge crowds, a lot of transport. So, I decided to stay in the airport and finish my diploma project from there.

The next day, I needed to visit the place, which was the main goal of the trip. I was really nervous, but still decided to shoot some photos on the way.

The architecture of Moscow seemed fragmented to me, without any strict standards of style and placing. Here, I prefer Saint Petersburg much more.
