    Moscow Off The Beaten Path

    On my second trip to Moscow in October 2009 I wanted to take at least one daytrip from the Russian capital. I perused several guide books and finally decided on Sergiyev Posad. Sergiyev Posad, which was formerly named Zagorsk, is situated on the so called Golden Ring, just 70 km north east of Moscow. It can easily be reached by train...

    Moscow Off The Beaten Path

    Vorobyovy Gory (Sparrow Hills) is a hill located on the south bank of the Moskva River. Because it is one of the highest points in the city, the views here are quite impressive: on one side, there was the towering Moscow State University; on the other, the river and, behind it, Luzhniki (formerly Lenin) Stadium and the whole of Moscow. We had no...
