I visited Russia between August 21 and 29, 2003. In Moscow I stayed for a few days during which I experienced Moscow party time, met several acquaintances of my friend Alex, and saw several historical places and museums. Then I went to visit Protvino, which is a small town about 70 miles south of Moscow where Alex comes from. In the end of my stay I returned back to Moscow to visit the Kremlin and the mausoleum. During my short trip I didn't get chance to visit more places in Russia, although I would like to. Despite, I enjoyed what I've seen. Moscow is a great European metropolis. I loved Moscow subway system, where each station has its unique decoration and architecture. I loved Moscow museums and historical sites. I loved Russian cuisine; it's really delicious. And I enjoyed meeting local people - Russians are really friendly. If you haven't been to Russia, it should be one of your next destinations.
