  3. Chris says:

    Isn’t there an accident on the first picture, on the right? That lorry seems to have crashed into the side barrier :D

  4. Scrat335 says:

    That palace is beautiful, I saw it for the first time a few months ago.

  5. DaimeG says:

    It’s a palace of our queen!
    Well, former queen :D cathrin II

  7. Meowist says:

    Wow more mulchly greener than I wood have expected.

  8. too muchvodka says:

    Yes, well, Moscow… it will always be an overgrown provincial town missing the grandeur of Sankt Peterburg

  9. no66y says:

    Wow, some awesome architecture.
    Looks great in places, more greenery than I would of expected.

  10. Domo says:

    Moscow looks great in summer & winter, but NOT in autumn/spring, when there’s a lot of mud! That’s our climate… ;)

  11. jakro64 says:

    Funny to see all the cute small onions. Well, not exactly London or Rome…

  12. geo says:

    None of this is the city center.

  13. AndersonBMX says:

    No bikes in russian streets?
    they are the fastest way to move around the chaotic traffic city and transport small cargo.
    here in Brazil they collaborate to a more dangerous and catastrophic transit. and also makes 30 km with one liter of gasoline.

    I know would be suicide ride an bike in the Russian winter, but common, i see no ice in these pictures…

    • Eris says:

      а) Bikes? Firstly, not in this climate; secondly, they’re too dangerous.
      b) No ice on photos because it is summer ;)

    no wonder why they have such high air-pollution..

  15. w says:

    wheres the beach?

  16. Jim says:

    I’m amazed it looks so European, don’t know why I should be but I am. All those high rise buildings are they post communism?

  17. ringm says:

    Most of the time it’s either too cold or the streets are too wet & muddy. There are no bike lanes and drivers are rather aggressive. Enthusiasts do cycle a lot, but overall it is not a popular way of transportation.

  18. Svenchik says:

    If you look closely into the window of home, you can see fine Russian porn being photographed

  19. Eris says:

    BJs, donkeys… You’re bloody perv, did ya know that? :D

  20. tom says:

    Interesting but, with all there is to photograph why the fascination with sewage treatment plants ?

  22. too muchvodka says:

    Sankt Peterburg is the exact transliteration form Russian. Saint Petersburg is some backward dump in Florida, you anglosaxon pufter.

  23. jakro64 says:

    Maybe because there are much better girls and vodka in Moscow, you want to say?

  24. Brian says:

    Nice pix but a couple of questions.

    I see lots of apartments, lots of traffic on the streets, but no parking areas around the apartments. Do you have traffic congestion or just nowhere to park?

    What’s that big white building that looks like something from Disneyland?

    What a football staduim with seating only for the home fans?

    Are there NO private homes?

  25. Peter says:

    Learn russian before you make some absurd comment.

  26. CZenda says:

    There are no parking areas around the apartment blocks because these were built in times of USSR, when a car for personal use was something from a sci-fi movie.
    Politically aware inhabitant of worker´s paradise was supposed to use public transport.
    These ugly buildings plague each and every country formerly occupied by USSR and nobody knows what to do with them. I blame Le Corbusier for coming up with this silly idea!

    • John from Kansas says:

      Yes, but Le Ccorbusier was not the only one to promote huge apartment complexes. And the eastern block was not the only place to find them.

  27. elochka says:

    The photographer’s name is Marina, not Maria.
    Also surname should probably transliterrated as Lystseva.

    And last but not least some photos are not from Moscow, but a small town nearby, Zhukovskiy.

  28. Some Guy says:

    Beautiful pictures, but this is quite a nasty pollution you got there :S

    have you never heard of nuclear plants. oops

  31. Wow, Moscow is getting bigger and bigger. Too bad it is become one of those cities that are designed for cars, not its residents.

  32. C. Carey says:

    Wow, the traffic there is almost as bad as Atlanta, but not quite. Atlanta officially has thhe worst traffic in the US, recently beating LA in terms of average commute time.

  34. Robert says:

    Hi, Americans!! Russia will associate, sooner or later, to the European Union.
    Suck it!!!
