A big capital city

Red Square is exactly that (except that it's not square), surrounded by St Basil's cathederal, the Kremlin, Lenin's tomb, State History Museum and гум. With the excpetion of the museum, all are better inside than out.

St Basil's is postcard perfect, an inside a maze of rooms, spiral staircases and turrets to explore. гум is a lot like Eldon Sqaure, and any keen shopper would have a field day; for the rest of us, a nightmare.

The remainder of the three days in Moscow included pleanty of wandering the vast Moscow streets, avoiding the cops, admiring the underground people's palaces, deciding that the view of Moscow from a ferris wheel was not worth dieing for, looking at yet more statues of dead people, and stocking up on train supplies.
