Moscow, Cafe Pushkin

Cafe Pushkin is from one of those places, which makes you feel like having traveled through time the moment you walk in. The atmosphere is so impressive that it makes you forget – at least for a little while – the main purpose of your visit, which is to feed yourself. It takes me about 20-30 minutes to take my first look at the menu. I somehow feel a little shamed for my over-excited look. This place makes you feel like in the novels of Dostoyevsky not only with its decor but also with the...

Moscow, Gum Shopping Mall
Gum

Do you feel disappointed that I am writing about a shopping mall? Do not be too quick to judge. What if I tell you that this shopping mall was opened in 1893 and has an amazingly beautiful architecture? If it is not enough to overcome your disappointment, I will then tell you that this shopping mall is located right in the middle of one of the most famous squares in the World – the Red Square.

Moskova, Suyun Üstü ve Yerin Altı

Nehir turu fikrine önce burun kıvırıyorum. Zaten bir sonraki durak Beyaz Gecelerde St. Petersburg. Rusya`nın Venedik`i olarak adlandırılan bu şehirde hiç kararmayan gecelerde yeterince nehir turu yapacağım. Sonrasında ise bir şekilde kendimi ikna edip, Yedi Kız Kardeşler arasında olan Ukraina Oteli olarak hizmet veren binanın hemen önünden kalkan teknelere atlıyorum. İyi ki de ikna olmuşum. Tekne çok geniş ve çok rahat. Elime şarabimi alıp herkese fazlasıyla yer olan güvertede konuşlanıyorum....

Moscow, Above the Water & Under the Ground

I am at first not too interested in the idea of a river boat tour. My next stop is St. Petersburg during the White Nights. The city referred to as Venice of Russia will sure offer me plenty of opportunities for a river tour. I somehow manage to convince myself and get on one of the boats lined up in front of Hotel Ukraina – which is among one of the famous Seven Sisters of Moscow. I immediately get the sense that it was actually a good idea. The boat is quite big and has sufficient room for...

Moskova – Yedi Kız Kardeşler

Sizce yedi kız kardeşler ne olabilir? Rus çarlık ailesinin fertleri mi? Moskova`nın o ünlü geniş caddelerinden yedisi mi? Yedi kız kardeşler bugün halen Rus halkının da neden o şekilde adlandırıldığını bilmediği şekilde, Moskova`da yedi adet gökdelenin adı. Gökdelen dediysem Dubai veya Singapur`daki benzerlerini düşünmeyin. Yedi kız kardeş müthiş zarif bir mimariye sahip ve odönem için yüksek sayılan ve genelde alçak binalara sahip Moskova`da da olduklarından da daha yüksek oldukları hissi...

Moscow – Seven Sisters

Can you take a guess what “Seven Sisters” is? Members of the Russian imperial family? One of the famous wide avenues of Moscow? Seven Sisters are in fact the name given to the seven skyscrapers dominating the Moscow skyline. Even the locals don’t know the story behind the name. When I say skyscrapers - do not confuse the Seven Sisters with classical skyscrapers that you can see in Dubai or Singapore. Seven Sisters reflect a much gentler architectural style and appear to be taller than they...
