I feel like this winter went by so fast – especially with me spending most of its advent abroad – that I already miss its crisp, snowy days. One such day I took a fantastic 9-kilometer (5.5 mile) walk across the Moscow Center. This is Part 1, basking in the glow of a winter sunset: Park Kultury (a.k.a. Gorky Park), Moscow River embankment and open-air art fair on the grounds of Moscow House of the Artist, Peter the Great monument, Red October island, Big Stone Bridge, Alexandrovsky Garden, Moscow Kremlin, Red Square, GUM trade center and Saint Basil’s Cathedral.

Can I ask how many parts there are to this photo orgy? 😉
THIS particular orgy is split in two parts. Then there will be another Moscow Eats, and then a different Moscow Walks :)))
Catching up on the ‘home’ after the ‘away’ 😉
Precisely. Binge-walking and eating Moscow 🙂
I could do with more of the walking and less of the eating right now 😉
My dermatologist ordered me to diet yesterday
Wow, how rude!
Don’t tell me you dont love it… sniff…
Love isn’t a strong enough word. 🙂
…but I do!!!!!
Awww, finally some appreciation! I miss your views of Toledo, btw – come back to us!
These are amaaaaaaaaaaazing! Even in the dead of winter! I love it! Someday, I will see it in person 🙂
Some day…. till then I will keep seducing you with beautiful Moscow vistas.
Some day!!!! 2486502387530 pictures later, and I’m still not in Russia…..
These are so good!
Thank you 🙂 But I am mostly proud of walking 9 km without a stop :)))
Yes! That’s great. I think the most I’ve walked is 5km.
Nope, I don’t miss winter at all! Gorgeous photos though, are they taken with the new camera? 🙂
Yes they are 🙂 I love my new baby/boyfriend (yes, that camera IS my personal life). And I shoot everything on automatic!
Sigh Gorky park, ever enough time. But have you taken the walk that starts at the steps on the right side of Varvarka street? The one that runs between the houses and the river? (http://wp.me/p1SEqD-XX)
Oh yes, many times, though it’s fairly grim while they figure out what to do with former Rossiya hotel area…
Beautiful winter virtual tour! Thanks for taking me there. I have been in Moscow long time ago in the summer but winter season looks fantastic (on your photos)! Bye. Kamila
Time to come back, perhaps? Summer is definitely a safer travel time. Winters can be hit or miss. This one was definitely a hit!

That last shot is total perfection!
There’s a reason I think Moscow (esp the Kremlin area) is the most beautiful city on the planet 😛
Beautiful beautiful beautiful!!!! I feel almost as if I have just been there. I wish we had some picturesque snow here instead of this rotten wind and drizzle…
yeah but you get gorgeous Italian weather for 10 months a year… I wouldn’t mind a bit of THAT 😉
All of them… breathtaking! ❤
Thank you. Now come visit and see for yourself :)))
I have too!!! ❤
Gorgeous! I love that spiked sculpture.
(Alleged) Peter the Great? You can keep him. Take him! Please!!!
Or the rainbow star thingy in the snow? That one I am keeping 🙂
