So Different Moscow

Posted on August 1, 2012 by team

    And again – to the translators. There is no ‘China city’ in Moscow. ‘Kitay-gorod’ (sounds like ‘china city’) means ‘fortress’ in Old Russian.

      It’s just a “China Town”, like it is everywhere else in the world. NY has CHina Town, SF does, Seattle and so forth. Not a “City”. You are right.

        Addition: It was the actual Chana Town of Moscow long time ago, when it was named so. Talking about centuries ago. Nowadays, real China Towns are in other places of Moscow, when this place just still holds it’s historical name and has nothing to do with chinese or any other asian communities.

    I disagree with you Ivan, I thought most, I said ‘most’ of the pictures were quality. We are just going to agree to disagree each other. Thanks
