Moscow day tour

19/01/2007 - 22/01/2007

Sightseeing tour in Moscow under an intense snowfall, visiting the downtown area including Red Square, St. Basil cathedral, Kremlin and the church of Christ the Savior. I get around Moscow using mainly the very efficient subway metro, having also very beautiful train stations.

I start the city tour from the Kremlin walls, towards Red Square. It is not easy to take pictures under this snowfall, but I'm happy to visit the city under a more typical winter atmosphere.
