Where to stay in Moscow

  • «Nansens and why Amundsens?» (quote from Soviet humor). And it is said that He was well known, unlike today, when this character thoroughly forgotten. With this new found fun nerjadovoj monument, dedicated to Polar Explorer, scientist and public figure. At the same time to refresh your memory, read about it and learned the seriousness of Nansen's contribution saved from starvation of Soviet people after the civil war (Volga region). Nansen is depicted in full growth, near-children's figure with a loaf of bread. For the landmark monument is located immediately after the Embassy of Mexico. So are brought to starvation, and others who, it would seem, and no cases were forced to save, there is something to think about with the height of the current days.

  • In a small park in the large Levshinskom lane at the mansion, where there was a Soviet Red Cross Fridtjof Nansen is a monument to Vladimir Cigalja. Nansen is known not only as a pioneer Arctic scientist (one of the founders of Oceanology), but also a public figure. After World War I, Nansen was the League of Nations High Commissioner for refugees and its invaluable contribution to the survival of the Russians after the civil war. Millions of people have lived with passports of displaced persons (Nansenovskimi), he organized a fundraiser for the hungry people of the Volga region. The formal pretext was unveiling the centenary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Russia and Norway, and this has a direct bearing tzhe Nansen was an active participant in the movement for independence of Norway.
