"I've taken more pics today"(с) me
On May 1st, On Labour and Spring Day, official Russian Holiday(I personally called it Lazy-Ass and Spring Madness Day due to real russian situation)
It's day when many political parties(but only United Russia decided to dominate in Kremlin before Apocalypse) and Labour Communities arrange their meetings and parades...
Ok, Movin On
Traditional Flags of Moscow and Russia(Always hang on official holidays)
OMG, people can't even hang it well, though it's one of most luxurious districts in Moscow:


Oh, new imitation of the Flag of the Victory of the USSR in WWII

And then I decided to go to the recently reopened famous Stalinist Skyscraper-Hotel- "Ukraine" (now it's "Radisson Royal Hotel "Ukraine"), but at first I went to the backyard of one of the greatest skyscrapers in Moscow:
Decorative Arch:

I told ya, it's great skyscraper:

From "Stupidity" series(May 1st sign and Dinosaur)

Door to nowhere

Taras Shevchenko Momument and Gazprom^


So, I've been at hall of this wonderful hotel,
Most of visitors were only foreigners
and there was beautiful Model of the Kremlin and centre of Moscow in 70s(was developed in 70s)
(Here I learned that First man in Moon(guess who) wanted to buy this model, but soviet said the "Moscow is not for sale")
Unfortunately, securities didn't allowed me to take a pics of this unique model
Fortunately, speedy elevator took me into 29th floor, to restaurant with beautiful views of Moscow:
Kutuzov Ave:

Typical Moscow's skyline:

Centre of Moscow, Ministry of the Foreign Affairs:

The Russian Government(The White House):

2 old people stood still there for really long time:

Sign and can you tell me one weird reason to hang this flag there:

Just beautiful stairs....I can't comment it:

I've decided that tomorrow I'll take pics of the Boulevard Wing.(one of most famous wings of Moscow) I really like this place because of its contrast: Green Tidy Boulevard and Narrow streets between boulevard.

Here's little update for you.
I've been on Garden Ring, near USA Embassy(oh!! taking of pics are forbidden), New Arbat Ave, and Manezh Sq.(near Kremlin)
I've taken pics of different people(proof that now Moscow is the one of World Capitals)
and Red Flags and Hammers and sickles(proof that Russia becoming more Soviet, now gov trying to restore symbols of Soviet Times)

But let's start from contrast
Nordstar Tower and other building(Begovaya District):

Weird road and pavement(typical russian reality):

Garden-Kudrin Street(called like this because of Garden Ring, in which that Street is situated):

Entrance to underground transition, and typical Russian Contrast(homeless even in centre of Moscow?!?!)

New Arbat St., and new banner that imitate Flag of the Victory (because of this 65th Anniversary of the victory of the USSR in WWII)

Sure, it reminds you of European Cities or probably St.Petersburg, but it's Moscow!:

That moment is like from soviet photos(I mean when people reading newspaper on the desk)
But difference is that people watching New Travel tours(where to travel in summer, for example):

Boulevard Ring(it reminds me of St.Petersburg):

Tidy Moscow People:

Old in new(just renovated old building):

Russian Girls(why I decided to take pics of people, especially them, i don't know):

Hammers and sickles are coming back!!!!:

Main Entrance to the Kremlin(Kutafia Tower and Troitskaya Tower):


St.George Ribbons(New Putin-Time Symbol of the victory in WWII) and people praise them:

Kremlin:

Policeman(Uniform really looks like Soviet uniform):

Fountains(by Tsereteli) and crowds of people who can't go to closed for tourists(only today, when I wrote that post) Red Square, and kids and adults really love that fountain:


Chineze guy went right to the fountain, why, just for fun, he wanna break the rules?

Weird pose, couple looks so weird:

Closed for tourists, too empty Red Sq. Red Square has been closed for tourists(due to Rehearsal of Military Parade due to upcoming 65th anniversary of the victory of the USSR in WWII)

Szukov Momument, the main Marshal of the WWII in the USSR:


Frustrated tourists, closed entrance:
