The city is...breathtaking...fast...majestic...and not just big but gigantic!!!
After 9 years Russian at school, then 11 years break (of speaking or reading the language), I was glad to have finally made it...to Russia:-)
Be ready to fall in love with its architecture, hold yourself in the metro (its speedy) and enjoy this amazing mix of historical and cultural beauty in the middle of a ...crowd: its a 12-million-world metropole, busy, beautiful and buzzing(up to humming)!
The monument of Dostoevski in front of the National bibliothek.
In front of the famous St Basilius cathedral on Red Square...which looks indeed as made out of sugar!
