Birthday of Stalin & Snowfalls

Birthday of Stalin & Snowfalls

The 21st of December is the birthday of Stalin, who was the leader of USSR in the middle of 20th century and died at 1953. On this date at 2005 I was walking with my clients nearby the Red Square, which was closed by this occasion, but fortunately I had a chance to make several photos of the people (mostly old generation) who came here to put flowers to the tomb of Stalin near Kremlin wall and Lenin's Mausoleum (tomb). From the distance it seemed like that the communists were trying to take Kremlin back to Soviet times :-). The people hold the red banners with symbols of USSR and portraits of Stalin.

During last winter were a lot of snowfalls in Moscow and even extremely cold temperatures at the end of January (-30...-35 C). On this picture you can see the Red Square during the real Russian winter and snowfall, which lasted several days.

PS: How it looks different if to compare with current winter of 2006-2007 - still no snow in Moscow in middle of January! Just incredible and unusual!

WOW...if you are looking for the BEST tour guide...Arthur is your man!!!! We had a wonderful time touring Moscow with Arthur and he is so knowledgeable about Moscow and his country in general. He set up private tours for us, everything was amazing!One of our favorites was Christ the Savior Cathedral where Arthur had set up a private tour of the bell towers. It was right before services so they were hand ringing the huge bells...it was beautiful! I could go on and on but there is not near enough room in the little box to tell you what a fabulous job Arthur did and how he made our stay in Moscow the best it could have been...memories for a lifetime! There is NO need to look any further for a tour guide, book with Arthur, he is the BEST!
