While Russia in general looks so serious, the architecture is probably one of the most playful that I’ve seen. Here’s a photo story of my short trip there. From the excited dinner in Cafe Pushkin after the four day transsiberian, to the subway sight seeing, then the free Moscow tour, Red Square, Kremlin, moving on to Saint Petersburg, St. Isaac Cathedral, and Winter Palace.
Cafe Pushkin’s got quite a backstory but it’s totally okay if you don’t know him, you can still eat fancy there.
We were probably the youngest ones out there on our casual clothing but they treated our international table well.
Free walking tour in Moscow! If you decide to join, do sign up here though I’m not sure if there’s really ever a limit.
