    I like monument. It has a complicated history: originally erected in 1893 on the slope of the Hill, facing the Kremlin to Moscow river. His project has caused much criticism: "Mad Builder talentless selected plan — Tsar-liberator put in a bowling alley. the year 1918 was destroyed. In our time the location of the 6-meter statue was placed on the territory of the Kremlin claims to cultural a UNESCO World Heritage site and the SSF. I like to look at the monument "from the back": feeling like a King-liberator knelt in front of the Temple of the Savior. King-Prometheus brought fire reforms, was forced to mouth before the ancient foundations.

    Delightful Monument near the Temple of Christ the Savior. The finished and polished the sculpture to the Tsar Liberator. Unambiguous success sculptor Rukavishnikov. Sorry little traveled and little information about the monument. Even for me it was unknown. The more pleasing aesthetic. Particularly interesting looks in profile, from the exit of the Metro station "prospect Mira".

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.
