So, let us begin. The Third traffic ring. Dorogomilovsky highway bridge is spanned over the Moscow river. Initially it used to be Smolensky railway bridge used to span two stations – Kutuzovo and Testovskaya on the smaller ring of the Moscow railway in Byelorussian direction. Then in 1998 with the beginning of the international centre “Moscow-City” construction the railway platform of the bridge was dismantled, its bearings were modernized and a new double-deck platform was set up: on top are the lines for cars and lower are the lines for high-speed trains from Sheremetyevo in the centre and for pedestrians on the periphery. The urban beauty as it is.

The view of “Moscow-City” itself. On up front is the complex “Embankment tower”, it used to be the highest, now the leadership belongs to a multifunctional complex “Capital City”. As the overpass is narrowing, there is a terrible jamming in the “Moscow-City” area. And now the overpass is actively being widened.

And here is the “Northern Tower”, one of the ugliest buildings in the Moscow International Business Centre. It is constructed in the manner of “a yacht” and it looks especially awful when multi-colored lighting is on. It seems that the terrible giant starts smiling with its toothless wonder smile. Cute colorful lights, cheap composite panels, merry blue glass, what else for the modern Moscow architecture? Only such a tutti-frutti picture.

The traffic interchange of Kutuzovsky Avenue with the Third traffic ring. That is a unique for Moscow five-level system providing traffic of cross transportation flow. The Moscow wonder has been built for 23 months.

Many design conceptions are rather enigmatic. Thus it is not clear what for these nice sheds have been made. And what is the purpose of these flowerbeds, benches and alleys on the junctions? It is really hard to imagine people who would like to take a walk here.

    A telescope or binoculars, a bottle of vodka, a six-paper joint and about six hours to kill would make that a great place to hang out.

    Oh yeah, you would need some cool ambient tunes as well. Better bring the iPod.

    Been there month ago. Moscow looks like Mogadishu. Even Mumbai is much more nice.

    Don’t listen to EstonianRussian. I was in Moscow a few months ago. It does not look so bad. Some areas are nicer than others. This neighborhood looked nice, as it is near Victory Park. The area around Sheremetyevo airport looks like it is stuck in the 1970’s, though. Nicer than some American cities I have been to, like St. Louis. Now that city, especially East St. Louis, looks like Mogadishu. Look it up.

    Big cities aint my cup of tea but this certainly looks metropolitan and busy. Interesting shot of the photographer holding the tripod against the ceiling?
