  • An interesting monument, which is located next to the station. Upon arrival in Moscow about it necessarily all photographed. Very good idea to have next to stations not only monuments but locomotives and the creators of the railways.

  • The monument is located in front of the Kazan station, not from the area of three stations. Interesting and informative to know who stood at the origins of the railway business in Russia. Desired monument and the right place!

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.
