A walk along Newskij Prospekt

Everyday crowded with tourists

Railway station Moscow

Houses in a side street

Admirality in the background. Fortunately they have banned advertisement signs over the street to keep the view clear

One day I saw huge crowds standing in line and waiting up to 5 hours. Reason: A special icon arrived back from the USA and was displayed here before being transferred to a monastery in Tichwin. For that event the Patriarch from Moscow arrived, also.

Some houses are still blemished by this kind of advertisements. It seems to have occurred often, as I saw on an old photo of a calendar.

Old Duma

Resurrection Church

In front of the Kasan Cathedral

A side street converted into a pedestrian zone. In preparation for the 300 anniversary in 2003 a lot was renovated or newly created.
