Dear guests of the site I invite you to my husband’s Facebook and Instagram pages: Gregory Boyko and @wooden_utensils . Here we upload photos of wooden utensils crafted by Gregory (with the obligatory indication of wood species). Each item is one of a kind work. They are made for domestic use and as art objects. We will be very pleased to get your likes and comments. You are welcome. Enjoy and share with your friends. I appreciate your support!
Highly recommend to visit an excellent exhibition “Moscow Metro. Subterranean Monument” at Schusev museum of architecture (Moscow, Vozdvizhenka str., 5/25, 17 March – 17 July 2016). It represents the Moscow metro as a unique achievement of architecture and art in the variety of projects embodied and unrealized.

Ursula: My walking capability is approx. one mile. Would that be enough to walk inside of the Kremlin? Thank you
Ursula, the main Kremlin itinerary I suppose is not less than 1 mile (approx. 1 mile). Moreover there will be a possibility to take a sit in the Assumption cathedral. What seems to me even more important it is the organization of the entrance and purchasing the tickets before the tour, that require time and effort. So, somebody should assist you. All the tourists enter the Kremlin by a staircase. On special occasions it is possible to escape it, if to contact the stuff. In this case you will enter from above.
Question from Michelle:
Olga, if you would be kind to answer my question, I will be arriving via Domedovo (Moscow ) airport heading towards Kremlin and Im planning to take the aeroroport express train. Please guide me how.
1. Take the aeroexpress from Domodedovo airport to Paveletsky railway terminal.
2. When you arrive to Moscow almost all the people from aeroexpress will go in the same direction – to the metro, just follow them. The entrance to the metro station Paveletskaya (radial, green line) is located in the train terminal.

question of the day:
Hello, Olga! We have lived in Moscow now for 1 1/2 year. We have seen Gorky Park, VDNKh park, Kolomenskoe park etc. But this weekend we would like to explore other green areas of Moscow. Do you have a recommandation for us? We like long walks, along the river or through forest (like Kolomenskoe Park).
My list of parks and green areas, that immediately come to mind:
Tsaritsyno, Novodevichy convent, Moscow university area (Sparrow hills), Boulvard ring, park Museon, country estate Arkhangelskoe (not far from Moscow, easy to get), 3 botanical gardens – of MSU on Sparrow hills (only with excursions), of Russian Academy of Sciences, and Aptekarsky ogorod.
John: I need to get to Northern River Boat Station Leningradsky Prospekt, Khimki . What is the travel time difference if I come into Domodedovo International Airport or into Sheremetyevo International Airport ?
Sheremetyevo is preferable. By taxi it will take not more than 30-40 min. There are dispatchers at the airport. Negotiate a fixed fare before you board the taxi. Besides, you can take a bus #851 (or minibus #949) to the Metro station Rechnoy vokzal. How to get from the metro to Boat Station is described here:
