Часы мира Moscow, Russia

Часы мира(モスクワ, ロシア)|Moscow(Katya Sondakさん)

The fountain is the main dome of an underground shopping mall "Ryad". The glass dome of the fountain with the names of the cities is rotated once per day. It is itself a clock, with a rather intricate dial. The fountain has a peace theme.

ГУМ / GUM Moscow, Russia

グム百貨店(ГУМ / GUM)(モスクワ, ロシア)|Moscow(Katya Sondakさん)

Pronounced goom , the initials GUM originally stood for the Russian words for ‘State Department Store’. When it was privatised in 2005, the name was officially changed to ‘Main Department Store’. Fortunately, the words for ‘state’ and ‘main’ both start with a Russian ‘G’.

Красная площадь / Red Square Moscow, Russia

赤の広場(Red Square)/クラースナヤ・プローシシャチ(モスクワ, ロシア)|Moscow(Katya Sondakさん)

Immediately outside the Kremlin’s northeastern wall is the celebrated Red Square, the 400m by 150m area of cobblestones that is at the very heart of Moscow. Commanding the square from the southern end is St Basil’s Cathedral . This panorama never fails to send the heart aflutter, especially at night.

In old Russian, krasny meant 'beautiful' and Krasnaya Ploshchad lives up to its name. Further, it evokes an incredible sense of import to stroll across the place where so much of Russian history has unfolded.

Памятник А. С. Пушкину и Н. Н. Гончаровой Moscow, Russia

Памятник А. С. Пушкину и Н. Н. Гончаровой(モスクワ, ロシア)|Moscow(Katya Sondakさん)

The monument to great Russian poet Alexander Pushkin and his wife Natalia Goncharova is erected opposite the Arbat house where they used to live for several month. One can see that Natalia was really beautiful woman)

Храм Василия Блаженного / St. Basil's Cathedral Moscow, Russia

Храм Василия Блаженного / St. Basil's Cathedral(モスクワ, ロシア)|Moscow(Katya Sondakさん)

The apex of Russian political power and once the centre of the Orthodox Church, the Kremlin is not only the kernel of Moscow but of the whole country. It's from here autocratic tsars, communist dictators and modern-day presidents have done their best – and worst – for Russia.

Большой Каменный мост / Bolshoy Kamenny Bridge Moscow, Russia

Большой Каменный мост / Bolshoy Kamenny Bridge(モスクワ, ロシア)|Moscow(Katya Sondakさん)

This beautiful walking bridge will take you from the Temple of Christ the Saviour towards the island with cafes and bars. A nice short walk. On the bridge you will see many newlyweds, and it also has lots of places to take excellent photos of the Temple.

ГУМ / GUM Moscow, Russia

グム百貨店(ГУМ / GUM)(モスクワ, ロシア)|Moscow(Katya Sondakさん) - 02

The elaborate 240m facade on the northeastern side of Red Square, GUM is a bright, bustling shopping mall with hundreds of fancy stores and restaurants. With a skylight roof and three-level arcades, the spectacular interior was a revolutionary design when it was built in the 1890s, replacing the Upper Trading Rows that previously occupied this site.
