  • Among extinct volcanoes in Safaga. A dream holiday on the beach of the Red Sea occurred when a plane set height of 10 km. Below the thick clouds, in Salon "meditative calm. Some neighbors-doze, read, walk, looking at seated nearby, watching the window, etc. I look into the window. Commander Announces: altitude 10 km outside temperature minus 60 degrees Celsius. It becomes clear why cloud cover at the bottom, looks at the top as a dense snow. Flew to Rostov, Sochi, and clearance among the clouds has appeared only in the area of South-Eastern Turkey. But already over Syria aircraft again flew over the ruffled thunderstorm clouds, "mushrooms" which exceed 10 km. Among the troubled storm fronts flew 1.5 hours. Then, at the bottom between scrappy clouds, emerged the outlines of the Suez Canal. Thunderhead stayed over the northern part of the Sinai Peninsula. Next blue sky to Hurghada airport. From an altitude of 10 km, through the window, we saw on the large territory (like a map) results of ambitious geological processes occurring in the last 75 million. years.

  • When you get to the Tretjakovej Gallery in Moscow you will find that you have no regret. It is eremitáž in the smaller sizes. In contrast to the Russian Museum, where there are only domestic artists although outstanding so there is a whole art represented. Here you can take pictures without Flash. For older people are in larger venues and options for seating. Ideal for visits in bad weather, for example.

  • An incredible experience to know a large part of Russian art. Between Impressionism and Classicism, through periodic exhibitions of modern art. Very pleasant to spend an entire day among the many rooms of the museum. Nice and accessible to all.
  • Be sure to buy a ticket to the museum and see the gallery. Here you can spend the whole day. It is one and the most popular museums in Moscow
  • You could spend all day here. Good museum at a decent price. If you happen to know someone Russian, get them to by tickets as they are cheaper.
  • Amazing paintings and sculptures! It's huge and a visit can last 2 hours or more to watch them all.
  • Охватить весь Лаврушинский в один присест - нереально, поэтому вместо детального изучения обширной экспозиции можно просто неспешно бродить и зала в зал, выхватывая взглядом знакомые с детства картины. В галерее можно фотографировать без вспышки - мелочь, а приятно.
