"What a great surprise!!!" Moscow by xaver
Moscow Travel Guide: 4,193 reviews and 9,775 photos
To tell the truth the only reason why I decided to go to visit Moscow, was a grat deal I found, a very cheap tiket 100 euro from Ancona.
I was not thinking about Moscow as a possible destinations fro various reasons: the cold and, above all the rumors I had heard and read about it.
But when I was going to decide if going to Moscow and St. Petersburg a friend (call_me_rhia) told me: St. Petersburg is just a beautiful european town, Moscow is special and I hate to admitt she was right once again!
Fortunatly anyway i decided to go as Moscow was really a great surprise for me, I found it totally clean contrary to what I had heard, absolutelly well preserved and just coloured and alive.My idea of a grey big and unonimous city desappeared as soon as I arrived in the city centre.
The only thing I regret is that I could spend only and I repeat only 5 days in Moscow as they were absolutely not enough to visit all the sites I wanted to and to enjoy this grea city enough, in the end I will have o go back!
