    I am an opponent of demolition sites, any! Monuments-a piece of history, a time stamp! However, the number of Leninyh per capita in the USSR exceeded all imaginable and unimaginable limits. The monuments were made of bronze, granite, marble and even of plaster! Can you imagine what it was with poor Lenin from plaster when a monument installed somewhere in the Park the illiterate "party members"!? And I've seen such failed leaders of world proletariat! Even here, from all 7 or 8 Vladimirov Ilichej only two or three can claim the title of works of art! The rest are well paid at one time crafts! But .... Most sverzhennyh with pedestals and collected here monuments are still art! Stalin of pink granite sculptor Sergey Merkurov with broken noses, inserted in the song Eugene Chubarova "victims of totalitarian regime" does not look grim executioner (as plotted the compiler), and a winner! Dzerzhinsky work Vuchetich (in my opinion a definite masterpiece) looks here, in green, far better than the Lubyanka. And such examples are numerous! A rather posh monument Bitter! The mere enumeration of the authors of the monument sounds like a Symphony! V. i. Mukhina, n. y. Zelenskaya, z. g. Ivanova and i. d. Shadr. Preparing the review looked up info: Hooray! the monument was returned to his rightful place at the Belarusian railway station! But as a grim parody of art appear side by side built in ranks and ranks, works of so-called "contemporary art". But for them, too, were placheny money at one time, and a small fortune. The conclusion is simple: visit here necessarily!

Where to stay in Moscow

The capital of Russia and a huge metropolis, Moscow offers a plethora of different types of accommodations. Many renowned hotel chains are represented in the city, and some of its hotels rank among the world's most luxurious and expensive. Those traveling on a more modest budget can choose among the boutique or Soviet-era hotels. There are also numerous hostels and short-term rental apartments throughout the city. When choosing a place to stay, especially if you're only planning for a short visit, always bear in mind the size of Moscow. Staying too far from the center might mean that the precious time you could spend on sightseeing will be wasted in traffic and transport.
