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,

My family and I used Artur as a guide for our five days visit to Moscow. The first thing I have to say is the fact that Artur has been extremely reliable, coming on time and organizing our trip not only what we asked him to do but adding some special area that were very worth it. We investigated several guide company and found that Artur was very reasonable pricewise and did not requested to be paid everything before the trip started. His knowledge of Moscow was very deep and he introduced us to several places and restaurants that we all enjoyed. We also appreciate his art in making photographs as he is a real expert in it and I hope he will use some of the photographs he took of our family in his photo display. If anyone would like to check anything about Artur please e-mail us and we will be ready to tell everyone how good he treated us.
