Moscow, Russia

007008

Здравствуйте, друзья!

I received this card from Alla via postcardhub! Thanks a lot Alla, what a beautiful card! I am actually reading a book at the moment that takes place in Moskov. It is called Metro 2033, a Sci-Fi-Book and it just starts to get interesting 😀

Moscow is the capital and the largest city of Russia with 12.2 million residents within the city limits and 16.8 million within the urban area. Moscow is one of three federal cities in Russia (the others are Saint Petersburg and Sevastopol, although the status of the latter is disputed due to the annexation of Crimea by Russia).

Did you know?

The Kremlin, as we know it, was built by the Italians. When in the XV century its walls and temples got seriously dilapidated and needed repair, the Russian architects were unable to cope with this problem. So the Grand Duke Ivan III invited foreign experts to Moscow, under the leadership of which were built new temples and walls.
