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.
The photograph of the view from the airplane in Samara.
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 crowd near the «Vnukovo» airport entrance.

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.
The other view, the other buildings — near the center of the city.
The unknown visitor of the metro, who asked me to take a photo of him — did not have an opportunity to send it to him, so, at least, I will publish the photo.

Me near the Tsar Cannon. I do not like weapons and do not support the usage of them, but I see the Tsar Cannon as the example of art rather than a weapon.
Me happy inside the Kremlin — could not believe it.
The view towards the city from the inner Kremlin.
Three buildings, three styles, three representations.

Me on the way back home — tired, but happy.
This trip opened the whole new door of possibilities to me — but before this, I worked hard, really hard to open it myself. Tomorrow, I will share with you, what I am talking about.
