Places I loved in Moscow

1) the Kremlin, the actual seat of power and residence of the president.Formerly the citadel of Czars, originnally built in wood in 1156.

Don’ t miss the square with marvellous cathedrals, like the Assumption (picture) and the Annunciation. Impressive icones adorning the walls, some made by famous painter Andrei Rublev.I loved  the floor made of   jasper and agate (very rare) in the one of the  Annunciation.

there is a also a very pleasant garden inside the Kremlin, that looks like a city into a city.

to see absolutly : the diamod fund in the Kremlin museum !! I’ve never seen so much big gold nuggets ! and so many diamonds, like the mythical one the Orlov adorning Catherine sceptre.

The Kremlin museum is really worth visiting it :  the treasures offered by foreign courts to Russia , the dresses of the Great Catherine for coronation, the biggest collections of oldest coaches, splendid Fabergé works…many amazing testimonies of the wealth of Russian court.

2) The red square :

For me ,  I totally identify Moscow to that fabulous cathedral : Saint Bazil closing Red Square perspective. I feel like beeig in a Kandinsky painting, like a day dream. Oh my god, the sens of colours and decors, the proliferation of motifs, everything turns clear  ! you can even understand Malevith suprematism when you look at the clothes of saints painted on icons, adorned with black crosses and circles…
