With Lenin and Nicholas II

With Lenin and Nicholas II

Nearby State Historical museum from the side of the monument to famous Marshall Zhukov (huge monument with the military man on a horse) or nearby the gates into Alexander Garden (not so far) you can meet several people look-alike Nicholas II, Lenin, Stalin or even Putin. For a hundred of rubles (about $4) you can take a picture with one of them, but as I remember Putin's double take to much (about 500 rubles) - maybe because of the popularity of our president? :-) As about Stalin - I think that those man not looks so close to the famous leader of USSR as like these two interesting men who are doubles of two enemies at the beginning of 20th century - Nicholas II (from the right) and Lenin (from the left). "Lenin" holds the first Bolshevik's newspaper "Iskra" (Spark), has the famous cap and the red ribbon, his pose and the gesture is very recognizable too. Nicholas II is dressed in the old Russian military uniform and has a lot of medals, he looks imposing and kind.

I don't know should I say here this information, but truth is very sad and not so funny - by degree of Lenin our last tsar from Romanov Dynasty and whole his family was murdered by squad of Bolshevik secret police in mid of July 1918 in the city of Ekaterinburg. A little bit later I will try to add some more interesting historical details about Lenin and Nicholas II and hope that now it will be interesting for you to learn more background about these famous people. :-)

If you are on Arthur's website reading this email, then look no further! He is all you will need for a successful trip to Moscow. Transportation, tours, adventures and dining will all be incredible.
Arthur took us to Sergiyev Posad about an hour North of Moscow for an unforgettable tour of the monastery. We guarantee you will be moved and never want to leave.
We also took both a day and night tour of this beautiful city, including the subway. Arthur has his favorite stations, trust him, each one is more beautiful than the next.
Book early, as we waited too late and were only able to spend one day with Arthur, our loss. But with his help, advice and suggestions we were able to travel around the city with ease during the remainder of our visit.
Don't take a chance with someone else and let your time in Moscow be less than perfect. Arthur will be the ideal driver, guide and even photographer.
Be prepared to learn as he is very informative. And finally, if you don't have a sense of humor, Arthur will supply one.
