From time to time, we have seen Moscow as well as other cities from above. However, the city changes and people come up with new ways of getting photos, so let’s see a very fresh set of photos of Moscow from above taken recently in 2014. Very nice and colorful in the moment when the day changes to night so illumination is already on on many buildings but you can still get a glimpse of the fading day.  BUT THIS POST IS NOT YOUR REGULAR POST. It really is a MUST SEE! There is a lot of new stuff to learn about Moscow and these beautiful, beautiful photos! Come on, see it inside! And remember photos are clickable and can be viewed at a much larger size and scrolled from one to another with arrow keys!

Moscow is the the biggest city in Russia – officially home to 12 million people (unofficially – you go figure out). Because of this, it is in the top ten largest cities of the world. This is a Moscow kremlin, the oldest part of the city. Right in the center of it. Moscow, if you see it on the map, is made in a radial way spawning away from the center in the circles of the Moscow Circle roads and the Kremlin is in the middle. So to get to the downtown and to the Kremlin you need to pass through all of Moscow.

This is a Kremlin embankment of the Moscow river.

Kremlin panorama. It was built around the year 1485 and the length of its walls exceeds two kilometers – 2235 meters.

There are 19 towers on the walls of the Kremlin and one tower inside the walled complex. Three towers are round, while the others are square in shape.

This is the Troitsk Tower of the Kremlin. It is the tallest tower there and stands 80 meters tall.

This building is called the “Big Kremlin Palace” or Big Palace of the Kremlin, and was built in 1838-1849 by the order of Tsar Nicholas I. These days it is the main residence of the president.

The St. Basil’s Cathedral, one of the best known things in Russia.

Was built in 1555-61 to commemorate the conquering of Kazan.

    Moscow is an incredibly beautiful and well preserved city. I am very impressed by these stunning images. It’s a shame, though, the planners didn’t prevent the high-rise corporate trash architecture that’s now towering over the gems from better times …
