We were very lucky to visit Moscow during their national holiday
The National Day of the Russian Federation , Russia Day commemorates the formal adoption, on June 12 1991 of the Declaration of Sovereignty of the Russian Federation which declared Russia’s “independence” from the USSR.
If you want to visit Moscow this is the perfect date the weather is great and Moscow is empty since most people go out of town for the holiday and the traffic is great.
What an amazing people pumping system this is.
It is so very big, so very fast and efficient and to top this off some of the stations are magnificent .
Oh I forgot to mention how deep it is. When you ride some of this escalators down you are wondering where they are taking you.
It is also amazing how old most of the equipment is. But how well it all seems all to work.
It is all just impressive.
What a pleasant city this is. It would have been lovely to spend a couple of more days here just to relax and enjoy it.
The people were very pleasant and helpful.
The old city has many small shops and local restaurants as a matter of fact the team had one of our best meals so far.
An elk dish that was great.
