    What a pitty the chocolate factory will be closed. I will miss the smell of chocolate and the pictures of Aljonka and co.
    I also dont like the new building of the Lushkow era. They shouldnt build nothing higher then the 7 sisters, except the city. And the monument was build in the wrong city, you should mention what peter was thinking about moscow..

    I remember the bridge from another post over a year and a half ago. One of the photographers was wearing grey sports shoes. But it’s always nice to see new pictures, thanks for sharing them.

    The bridge looks like it’s overdue for some maintenance already. The catwalk is rusting badly.

    The Peter the Great Statue is damn ugly; not even St. Petersburg wanted it, or what has it to do with Moscow? What a waste of high-quality steel, bronze, copper and even gold.

    Anyone who can take photos this high up has my respect. Even though I feel fairly invincible with my camera in my hand, I would spend my time up there pooping myself and crying for my mommy!
