This place made such an impression on me, to think, people were working in labour camps here in my lifetime, it's just astonishing. Nicely juxtaposed against the high-end shops on the same road! Good irony.
Pushkin Fine Arts Museum

A great collection spread over a couple of locations, we did them all on one day which was a bit hectic to be honest, but the cheapest way to do it. Gallery of European and American Art of the 19th and 20th Centuries was the highlight as I loved the impressionists.

Unbelievable building and a pretty spectacular colleciton to match. Priceless art works compete with prehistoric relics and folk ceramics also thrown in there. A feast!

I was absoutely staggered by the beauty of the metro stations! They have chandeliers, marble, mosaics, frescoes, scuptures and much more! Those communists sure had the right idea when it came to public transport!!
Church of Christ the Saviour

You can see the gleaming gold domes from across the city, and the close-up experience doesn't disappoint! Fabulous place, made all the more remarkable by the fact that it was demolished in 1933 and then rebuilt after the fall of comunism!
