I went only in that orthodox church (well, it was very small and maybe not really a church) but cameras were not allowed. Otherwise I would have taken pics. And the other ones were mostly closed when I got there... sorry.

Stunning!! You really should be a travel photo journalist! I would go to all the places you have been based on your photos alone!! When I see beautiful pictures like this I realize how many places there are to visit in the world and most of us will not even scrape the surface!

Since I had three seats to myself I could move over to the window and take some pics before landing...



I would've guessed that Moscow was a much larger city!

Beautiful photos, Andiline, as usual. I envy you greatly. I've wanted to visit Moscow and St. Petersburg since I saw pictures in National Geographic a very long time ago.

Your night shots are perfect. Are using an SLR or a point and shoot camera?

Thanks for taking us with you!

Thanks, guys. I feel really blessed that I even got paid for going there...

Eccentrictinker: I had my Canon 7D (DSLR) with me. It is a pretty good camera and you can still get great pictures with very low light. When we were at that cloister that evening I really wished I had my tripod. This was the only picture that came out good.

This is the best TR of all time. A glimpse into a place that has been shrouded in mystery my whole life. Very cool!

Thanks, Uno. But I have to thank the people as well who built all those incredible buildings... Most of them are long dead of course...

Thumbs up Очень красивые фото =)))

Hi! I think you'd love Kazan (it's also Russia), there are very beautiful cathedrals and food is unique.. If you don't mind, I'd comment on some pics of yours =))) the couple in uniform-are the policemen, not soldiers; the stones by the Cremlin aren't the graves- dark red porphyry blocks with incapsulated soils from hero cities, in your photo that's in Minsk (Минск). In case you're curious here's a link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tomb_of_the_Unknown_Soldier_%28Moscow%29
But your pictures are really good!!! The colours are shown so vividly..

Thanks for the praise, Lapulya. I was lucky to have the clear blue sky so the buildings were sparkling. Thanks for explaining the uniforms and the heroe-city soil. Someone else had already explained the city part to me but I didn't know about the soil. Very intersting. And I would love to visit St. Petersburg...
