Sergiev Posad

posted by gjackson on 24 January 2011 at 09:29

I had been looking for an excuse to get out of the city and Sergiev Posad seemed perfect. It's on the so called Golden Ring 70 km north of Moscow and you can get there on the elektrichka train from Yarolavskysta station. The town is home to the Sergus Lavra monastery which is really beautiful and a fairly typical piece of Russian orthodox architecture.

VDNKh Exhibition

posted by rsummy on 11 January 2011 at 09:47

THis is the all Russian exhibition centre founded under the Soviets as a celebration of the constant progress of the soviets. The grounds and monuments are kitsch in the extreme and a number of the former exhibition spaces are now comercially owned. However there's still much remaining from the Communists including the fantastic monument to Uri Gargarin and the Soviet space program.

Iron Felix

If you visit Lubyanka which you surely will if you're visiting Moscow, make sure that you don't miss the plinth of the statue to Iron Felix, it's not much to see as the statue of this former kgb leader was torn down and replaced by a cross after the fall of the soviets but it is a poignant reminder of a savage period of history

Plevna monument

posted by jwise on 11 January 2011 at 09:34

This is a realy striking monument to the dead of the Pleven battle in which 40000 Romanian and Russian forces were killed. It stands as a symbol of renewed friendship between Russia and Bulgaria which was liberated as a result of this massive 19th century battle.

Lubyanka

posted by wthorley on 11 January 2011 at 09:30

This is considered a must see for visitors to Moscow as it is the former headquarters of the NKVD and KGB and therefore a place of some significance - not least because hundreds of people were tortured here during the soviet reign. Frustratingly, non Russians are not allowed around the museum except in a guided tour and to be honest, we found it quite dull and macarbre. There is some beautiful architecture but that's hardly what you're here to see.
