At the moment I am traveling through Russia with friends. It´s only three weeks ago that we decided to book the trip from Moscow to St. Petersburg. First I had to laugh, because after I told my friends about it they felt pity for me according to the current weather conditions. After we arrived here it was completely different. Instead of a winter wonderland we are enjoying right now 10°C and sunny spring weather. On our first days we discovered the Kremlin, the Red Square and some of the prettiest metro stations I have ever seen. „Metro stations?“ you may ask yourself now? Yeah, here in Moscow each of them looks like a master piece of art with wonderful sculptures, stucco and mosaics, true palaces in the underground one might say.
On our last day we visited the university of Moscow with it´s three towers at which students can live in. Even though the city is loud and not as green and colorful as one would expect from a city during spring, the city pours on its charm. Today I will give you my first impressions of Moscow.
