A Trip to Moscow @ Russia


The Moscow (Russia) :

Moscow is the Capital city and the largest city in Russia. Locally it is called Moskva as the river Moskva flows in the city. 

This city was established in 1147 and from then it has developed many folds. It has seen many historical movements.

The city offers many places for its visitors. Many historical places, religious places, shopping malls, tasty and variety of foods, drinks and many more.

You will feel little difficulty if you don't know Russian as many people don't speak English. You have to manage there with other techniques like showing them photos, translate your words to Russian, etc.

During the night you have to be a little careful as you may face some stranger with different behavior.
