Just to correct - he was killed in Tehran (Griboedov was Russian Embassador in Persia during Great Game) and was buried in Tbilisi.

From Wikipedia:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aleksandr_Griboyedov

Several months after his wedding to the 16-year-old daughter of his friend Prince Chavchavadze, Griboyedov was suddenly sent to Persia as Minister Plenipotentiary. In the aftermath of the war and humiliating Treaty of Turkmenchay, anti-Russian sentiment in Persia was rampant and, soon after Griboyedov's arrival at Tehran, a mob stormed the Russian embassy.

The incident began when an Armenian eunuch escaped from the harem of Persian shah Fath Ali Shah, and two Armenian girls escaped from that of his son-in-law. All three sought refuge at the Russian embassy. As agreed to in the Treaty of Turkmenchay, Armenians living in Persia were permitted to return to Eastern Armenia. However, the Shah demanded that Griboyedov return the three. Griboyedov refused. This caused an uproar throughout the city and several thousand Persians encircled the Russian compound demanding their release. Griboyedov and other members of his mission, seeing that things are bad, prepared for a siege and sealed all the windows and doors, armed and in full uniform, resolved to defend to the last drop of blood. The Cossack detachment assigned to protect the embassy was too small in number but held off the mob for over an hour until finally being driven back to Griboyedov's office. There, he and the rest of the Cossacks held out even further until the mob broke through and slaughtered them all. Griboyedov was among the first who were shot to death. Second secretary of the mission Adelung and, in particular, a young doctor (name unknown) fought hard, but the fight was too unequal , and soon the scene was that of butchered, decapitated corpses. The mob grabbed the corpse of Griboyedov, distinguished by his uniform, and dragged it through the streets and bazaars of the city, with cries of celebration. The eunuch was one of the first killed in the assault on the embassy; the fate of the two Armenian girls remains unknown.

His body was for three days so ill-treated by the mob that it was recognized only by an old scar on the hand, due to a wound received in a duel. His body was taken to Tiflis and buried in the monastery of Saint David (Mtatsminda Pantheon). His 16-year-old widow, Nino, on hearing of his death, gave premature birth to a child who died a few hours later. She lived another thirty years after her husband's death, rejecting all suitors and winning universal admiration for her fidelity to his memory.

In a move to placate Russia for the attack and the death of its ambassador, Persia presented the Russian Emperor with a large diamond, now known as the Shah Diamond, as a gift. The ceremony is depicted in the 2002 film "Russian Ark", by leading Russian director Alexander Sokurov, with lavish realism.

"Closer Moscow" -one year on SSC.
The first photos I made on Tverskaya St.
I came back to main street of Moscow.
One year later, with better pics.

GUM Department Store
My favourite thing here is Dome and interior itself.



DOMEE

View to empty Red Sq(I love when big squares get soo empty)
That square is blocked because of open of one icon on Nikolniskaya Tower





Weird thing. There are stairs instead of boutique itself. Why?


The centre of this Department Store

I explained you why this square is blocked above

Actually most of people were here, on Manege Square
It was rained, rained, rained here

Sign. That's a picture that you can explain somehow.
Police and ad sign
I love signs

Police,once again

Communist Marx looks at capitalist ad signs

Bolshoy(Big) Theatre

Oh, poor monument of one pioneers in typography. (I forgot his name)
Among Ferraries, and Bentlies

KGB/FSB Building. There was Dzerzhinsky Monument. Lubyanka Square



Lybyanka Street

Lenin Plate. He made one of his speeches here.

Boulevard Ring. Nobody's here.

I hope to visit Moscow in my next vacation.

Weird Church(I don;t know what's this church)

Trubnaya Square. St.George Statue. Here you can notice the contrast between new buildings and old


Trashcans in such a beautiful place

Interesting building with awesome painting

You can see the St. Basils Cathedral...Look carefully

Liberal-Democrats' Demonstration
(actually nationalists, which headed by Russian Glenn Beck- Zhirinovsky(even worse)

Tverskaya St.

Tverskaya St, as it was in 19th century


This is the very first McDonalds in the USSR. Opened in 1990.

Moscow City Hall
Headquarters of new mayor- Sobyanin


And then I went to the McDonalds Headquarters
I bought potato-fries and chocolate-flavored ice-cream
It's only thing that I love in McDonalds
Tasty ice-creams, but Burger King rules, actually
Rare sign for Moscow


Moscow Underground

Postboxes inside my house, it seems that this picture is beautiful, because of these sticking leaflets

Great pics & vids as always levaniX! But I can't say people drive safely in Moscow as I see in the video above. At least for me braking in the middle of 3-lane road isn't too safe

Levanix, I like your pictures. Your pictures are down to earth pictures.

I like your comments too, many people say picture tells you more than 1000 words, but your comments are nice and help understand better what picture show you.
