One can instantly notice moderate traffic and lack of adds which
is a big plus point if you compare it to today's Moscow.
Interesting posting of this gorgeous supercity.

Very interesting pics. This is what communist-party members where looking at in western Europe in the 60's. Not realising that it was propaganda.

Those pictures are amazing, Moscow is a city that intrigues me but i still need to visit. Does much of Moscow still look like that i.e are many of the older buildings still there? Did they survive the wrath of the 60's and 70's? It would be nice to see some of those places now as a contrast.

The streets are really quiet with pedestians mainly. For a city the size of Moscow there aren't many people around.
The city squares look really impressive. Nice pictures.

Ah...good old 60s . Moscow looks awesome on the pictures , except for the "khrushovkas" on some photos ( low-cost apartment buldings introduced during Khrushchev) , good thing they keep tearing them down .
