Moscow: Thirty Years Later

Posted on October 24, 2012 by team

Moscow is rapidly changing, new high-rise buildings are growing and some people like it, others – don’t. Here’s a selection of photos to compare Moscow of the 80s with Moscow of the present days.

Now there is a communication salon here.

One can be massaged here now in many different ways.

A pawnshop has appeared nearby.

    The today photos look uglier because they were taken in Autumn or Spring while the old photos are taken in Summer.
    Also Hotel Moskva is gone and there’s a construction site in place of it, that looks sort of ugly but is temporary
    All in all the Arbat hasn’t changed that much

    Capitalism is a billion times better than Communism death camps.

    lol @ all the eco nuts complaining about cars. If walking your ass of was so much better how come today Russians can’t buy cars fast enough?

    You haven;t got the pictures quite aligned and the time of year is not the same, but everything still looks better in the past. Less selfishness I suppose, people more willing to mingle.

    If this was Britain the most noticeable difference would be the ethnic minorities, anyone will tell you that!
