Red Tulips in Victory Park

Red Tulips in Victory Park

According to tradition, every year at the end of April flowerbeds in the public parks and squares of Moscow are planted with thousands and thousands of flowers to greet the spring holidays at the beginning of May. In spite of the long winter season and the cold weather in Moscow in April of this year, gardeners were able to cultivate more than 1.5 million tulips and daffodils of different colors and types.

Tulips are very beautiful flowers that embody for us all the glory of the spring season. We can't even imagine celebrations of Victory Day (May 9th) or May Day (May 1st) without the colorful tulips on the main squares, streets and parks of our cities. These flowers became the traditional harbinger of the spring holidays.

There are many types of tulips with a myriad of colors blooming all around the city which can be a beautiful sight during our celebration of the holidays in May. It is not difficult to guess that the most popular "on demand" color for this holiday is the red tulip. You might be interested to know that several years ago horticulturalists from Holland (the motherland of the most popular flowers in Russia :-) bred for us a special type of a tulip with a very big bud and dazzlingly bright color that was called "the Victory."

The Moscow weather was just perfect on May 9th, 2009, during the celebration of the 64th anniversary from the day of the Great Victory. On this special commemorative day, the warm sun and puffy clouds in the blue sky along with the millions of flowers all around Moscow gave us a special holiday atmosphere and cheerful mood.

With BEST Regards,

Arthur did a fantastic job for us. We had 12 hours in Moscow, six of which were committed to seeing our son's concert...so Arthur had less than six hours to show us Moscow. And he did a fine job of it. We had some wild drivers in Russia. Arthur was not one of them. He was safe and sane on the road. Arthur went the extra mile at each opportunity, from picking us up on the platform when we arrived at the train station, to escorting us to our cabin and making sure the steward had our dinner order on our departing train. Great service, good humor, a torrent of facts and figures about everything we saw, there is no way we could have gotten more out of our time in Moscow. Highly recommended!
