MOSCOW WALKS: From PARK KULTURY to RED SQUARE

Walk 1I 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.
