Is it? http://wap.photohost.ru/pictures/273852.jpg
It is (maybe was) on Luzhkov bridge (extention of Lavrushinskiy pereulok (lane), street where Tret'yakovskay gallery is located). But I don't know it is or not now. Last weekend I saw as newlyweds placed lock on Patriarshiy bridge fence ( this bridge is not far 600 m from Luzhlov bridge near the Cathedral of the Redeemer).
Let me know this lover tree exists or not now ;)
Good luck.

Travel Tips for Moscow

You absolutely must ride the...

by solyoung

You absolutely must ride the Metro and get off at the stop near the zoo. The Moscow zoo is cheap, has lots of cool animals, and great views of the city. The metro ride that drops you off near the zoo is pretty cool... as is the entire Moscow Metro system. As an American growing up with a government that says, 'Communism = BAD!', my fondest memory was hanging out with some Russians at a communist rally and finding out what they're really about... Don't try this unless you're able to leave your country's pride behind, hehe.

It's always sunny there:)

I can say that this place is the most crowded. It;s situated btw Red Square and Alexandrovski Sad (garden) and near the 0 km,and that means that RIGHT in the center of the city!!!
In spring and summer time Moscow blossoms and and changes completely.So, my opinion Manezhnaya Ploschad' (Square)it's the most suitable place for dates:)

The main church of Russia

by tanianska


The Christ the Savior Cathedral was built (1839-1883) in memory of the Russian victory over Napoleon by Konstantin Ton (1797 - 1881). Russian architect, founder of so - called Russian-Byzantine style. His most famous design are:
- Christ the Savior's Cathedral (1837-89)
- The Great Kremlin Palace (1839 - 49)
- The Armory Chamber (1843-51) in Moscow Kremlin
- The station buildings on Oktyabrskaya (Nikolayevskaya) railway in Moscow and St.Petersburg (1844-51).
The Christ the Savior Cathedral was destroyed in December 5th, 1931 - during the Stalin's time, because communists decided to build "Soviet Palace" for their meetings. They plan to build it 415 meters high with 80 meters Lenin on the top. They build swimming pool Instead.
The Cathedral was recovered during 1995 - 2000. It was built additional basement level.

This local custom is from pagan times and it now celebrated the week before Lent for one week. It's to say winter good-bye and welcome spring. During Maslenitsa everyone eats blinis (russian pancakes). You are allowed to really stuff yourself!

Here in Moscow there were activities beside Red Square. And the big puppet called Maslenitsa was standing at the bottom of Tverskaya road.

a blue santa?

Father Christmas comes in many different colors in Russia, not just the western traditional red and white. Also, Father Christmas is not the fat, jolly, old elf of Coca Cola lore. He beats children that have been bad with a stick. He is also quite a bit thinner than his jollier counterpart in the west. However, for good boys & girls, he still brings gifts and candy. Russians exchange gifts with one another on New Year's Eve, December 31st. Russian Orthodox Christmas is one January 7th, and the Old New Year is celebrated on January 13th. Many Russians this year will be on holidays from December 31st until January 10th, which is a nice, welcome break. Season's Greetings.
