I have been to Moscow four times and each time is fresh. Notice the skyline when you land; it will give you the illusion that you are landing in a fairy tale. Modern Russia is a mix of history, new social challenges and breakthroughs in democratic freedom.

St. Petersburg--A Window on Europe

St. Petersburg, formerly Leningrad, was founded & constructed by Peter the Great. The city was his creation & in it he revealed himself w/ exceptional clarity as a distinctively Russian genius, capable of great vision. St. Petersburg is a result of his creativity, truly a work of art. I've included in this journal a comprehensive overview of top popular sites & little known treasures wrapped up in 17 journal entries & 22 photographs. Russia is rich w/ history. If you want to immerse yourself in Russian history, as I have, I recommend "The History of Russia" by Nicholas V. Riasanovsky. In addition, "Pushkin Threefold" by Walter Arndt has wonderfully translated works by Aleksandr S. Pushkin. Happy reading! :)

Two Weeks in Russia

In the Fall of 2000, I travelled alone to St. Petersburg and Moscow. St. Petersburg is a vibrant city of Italianate architecture; Tsar's palaces abound in the city and in the suburbs. Moscow is huge and teeming with history, containing subways with Soviet symbols and onioned domed churches. In this journal, I concentrate on budget accomodations and inexpensive food, as well as tips for buying a train ticket and viewing productions at the Bolshoi.
