Russia, Moscow City Tour

Seven Sisters Moscow State University

The name of our new guide was Galina and she welcomed us to Moscow and invited us to follow her to the coach which was parked nearby.  Luckily this time it was a full size coach so this meant that we didn’t have the same pantomime accommodating all of the luggage and it wasn’t long before we were on our way and joined the long lines of traffic which were equally as bad as those in Saint-Petersburg.

  3. Hope you got to a hotel eventually …. Moscow looks wonderful and I’m looking forward to many more photos over the next few days.

  4. Not really the sort of attitude to encourage tourism. It doesn not sound as if it was well planned at all…I bet it was most uncomfortable for those two hours and you didn’t even get to feed the ducks on Swan Lake!

  5. Swan lake is one of the most serene and picturesque places in Moscow whether it served as inspiration for anything or not. But the timing of that morning tour was definitely bad.

    • It is very true to say that we didn’t see it at its best. Unfortunately the city tour was badly thought out and the infrequent stops were all rushed. Over the next three days we were fortunate to explore the city at our own pace. My favourites were the Kremlin and the Metro and I like your pictures of Moscow!
