    I have no words to describe the place.
    This museum is really a treasury, the building itself is very beautiful and magnificent.

    We used Audioguide which is available to rent at the gate but unfortunately the 2nd and 3rd floors didn't have Audio guide support.

    The staff of the museum does not know any English, I lost my way and none of them could help me,
    this was strange for a well-known museum that has visitors from all over the world.

    This beautiful church, which aesthetically reminds of St Basil, was built in order to remember the killing of Tsar Alexander II; its name comes from this. Nowadays it’s the most iconic and touristic church in Saint Petersburg, as you can assume from the many souvenir stalls outside of it.

    I loved this place, it was beautiful, magnificent, and a must-see!
    I am so happy that I visited this place and had the experience.

    I wish I had a guide to explain me more about each building but just seeing the place was also great.
    Will totally come back to Moscow and red square!

    Probably it’s the most iconic landmark in Moscow and in whole Russia. It’s easily recognizable thanks to its brilliant colours as well as the iconic onion-shaped domes.

    Nicknamed “the Russian Versailles”, the main peculiarity of this magnificent royal palace (a summer residence) are the beautiful fountains, which are open from Spring up to the first half of October. You can even rent an electric car to tour the gardens; be careful to the guys dressed up as noblemen, they ask you for a photo in order to get money.

    Good service - bought tickets, tours start regularly inside for free. You can listen to the guide, or you can explore on your own.

    The entrance to Kremlin park is exotic. You can enter the park after passing through a three-step Heart lane. Here you can get a beautiful photo of the Kul Sharif Mosque from a unique angle. Here a large row of steps leads me to the Gigantic wall of the Kazan Kremlin. Now Starting from Preobrazhenskaya Tower, I passed to another unnamed tower and finally reached Taynitskaya tower. Not to mention there were a couple of Viewing platforms to watch the left side Panorama views of the city

    If you’ve been in Japan - you had issue, that for different rails you need different tickets. Here the system is united. You can get around the whole Moscow. Time is precise. IOS App is great.

    If you are an art lover, this gallery is simply amazing. I had my first visit yesterday, and will be going back. Probably multiple times. There is so much to see. Make sure to get the audio guide. It is well worth it, and provides great background.

    I rented a car to go there from Kaliningrad. It was February (not the best season to explore the Split, I'd say). The day was damn blowy and gusty winds at the beach literally got inside me notwithstanding my anorak. The sea was covered with hypnotizing rip curls and formidable waves were hitting the shore and even crushing some trekking paths (I saw quite a few in shambles).
    Still, I spent a gorgeous day there. Breathtaking panoramas, pristine nature, no tourists and some cozy places to hide from inclement weather.
    I had lunch at the excellent Rybniy Dvor/Fischhoff restaurant in Rybachiy (see my separate review), did some shopping at an amber shop near it, crisscrossed the Split as much as I could and finally, in complete darkness, stumbled upon a fox (not sure which of us got frightened more).
    Entrance fee is ridiculously low (less than USD 6 including a car) but you must bear in mind that it's a natural park with pretty strict rules - parking only in allocated places, no camping, no deviation from marked paths, etc. And the authorities mean it: fines are significant.
    A must see! Try to choose better weather though but avoid the high season - too crowdy.

    I travelled Moscow on a New year eve. So at that time, there was freezing cold and also lot of crowd but even after so much of difficulties, the experience was surreal to be honest. That place has a special vibe to that and it reflects the history in itself.

    The park is huge and has several buildings that can be visited. I recommend the Great Castle because it can see the architecture and life of Russia during Catherine the Second. The other two castles are ok, if you are interested in art be sure to visit them. There is a breathtaking golden hall in the Great Castle. Certainly the whole park is beautiful, in one part there is a lake around which one can remember and rest. There is a miniature museum in one section, but we have not visited it.

    Yes! In December 1967 local communist authorities asked Moscow for a permission to destroy what was left of the cathedral after 1944 British carpet bombings and build a park and a WWII memorial on that place. Thanks God, they did not get what they wanted - mostly because Kant's tomb was there.
    I saw that magnificent construction in May, when trees were in blossom. It stood in all its splendor crowning Kneiphof Isle or Kant Island, as Russians prefer to call it today. Definitely, the cathedral looks much better at a distance since its reconstruction is far from over. The closer one approaches it the better this becomes obvious - windows covered with wooden (plywood?) panels, stained glass missing, walls to still be further renovated, etc. Anyhow, if one compares it with what one could see, say, twenty years ago, the job done looks like a miracle.
    There's a concert hall inside with great acoustics and a wonderful organ which professional player performs Show Must Go On from time to time - to die for! (The cathedral is not a place of worship but a cultural and musical center.)
    Not to be missed!

    Probably the most famous and easily recognisable building in Kazan. This Mosque is beautiful both inside and out. Entry is free, it’s well worth climbing the stairs to the two balconies as these offer great views of the mosque. There is also a small museum in the basement.
