  • Good time of day. Not finding one library district works of Agatha Christie, I decided to enroll in a library where the books have to be all-Russian State Library. Recorded very quickly issued a plastic card. The Library operates the electronic order books. I ordered the desired book me and told me that her pop from the store the next day. But I WON'T LET HER hands. I WAS JUST IN SHOCK! I'm not asking Folio from a library of Ivan the terrible. As I explained I should come and read in the reading room. This library is for whom? Students and seniors (all am respectfully). And other categories of residents to look for books on the Internet and download an electronic version? It's a shame and it is not clear why.

  • Strange place, where you can meet young students and old Soviet strangers on the same proportions. Free Wi-Fi if you register.
  • Stare into the eyes of the librarians!Good place tho.
  • The biggest library in Moscow. But who needs in books hardcopies now?
  • Good library
  • No words to describe it. Just imagine all the story ran out from those windows. It deserves a visit.

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.
