Moscow, Russia|| Travel Diaries 1#

Hello everybody!

Last summer I went with my family to Russia for a dance recital. It was honestly an immensely EXCITING period that I shall cherish forever.

I loveeedd it๐Ÿฅณ

The whole city was absolutely pleasant and I’m positive the Russians are some of the friendliest people on earth.โค๐Ÿฅฐ

(Did I tell you that I’ve made Russian friends now๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿ˜Ž *feels very proud*)

I really didn’t expect the whole city to be SO breathtakingly gorgeous. It truly took me by surprise, and I’m super lucky to have it as one of THE. BEST ever trips that I’ve been on. ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿฅณ

One of Stalin’s Seven Sisters


The historic Red Square

I wasn’t blogging at that point at that point and neither did I mean to post any of the pictures. So all of them were just done on my phone which isn’t an iPhone X . Which is why the above one is a liitttlee tilted๐Ÿ˜‚. But the beauty hasn’t come down at all so that’s a great thing!!๐Ÿค—๐Ÿฅฐ

The iconic St. Basil’s Cathedral

This is probably Moscow’s most famous buildings it’s signature, if I must say. Though I’ve seen it in picture many times I couldn’t help gaping at this magnificent thing, whilst standing in front of it.

It was one of the Old 7 Wonders of the World, which I suppose, speaks for the rest!


Moscow, being the administrative capital of Russia (THE largest country in the world) has a humongous number of embassies and admin buildings. It was impressive to look at them all, because apart from the architecture being remarkable itself, everything was. so. BIG๐Ÿ˜‚ I mean, excuse me, I could hardly fit any of them into my phone screen๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™„ SO. HUGE

That’s Kazakhstan’s. Who knew it’d be SO pretty๐Ÿ’•

Roadside Cafes

This was my FAVOURITE spot/ picture among ALL others. I couldn’t honestly move my eyes at allโค๐Ÿ˜Kremlin Mall

Are luxury-malls even supposed to be boutique style pretty? ๐Ÿ˜ฒ I’ve only seen them look glossy with super high ceilings, digital screens, billboards etc. See those arches on the right? Those are the stores. I wish I could spend my dying day here.
๐Ÿ˜ฎ

So that’s it everybody! Hope you had a lovely time!!

I definitely did! It was SO fun for me to revisit everything and let my mind wander, especially since all it’s been seeing recently are the four walls of my bedroom. How fun.

Guess what? There’s more to come! *does jazz hands*

Did you like the pictures? Which one did you like best?!

Have you ever been to Russia? Let me know what you think in the comments!

  2. Nope… never been to Russia. I’ve never been beyond the US and two quick trips to different parts of Canada, although I’ve seen a lot more of the US than most people who live here.

    (If I’m writing this in character from 1995, then I’ve pretty much only seen parts of the western US and Vancouver. Most of my traveling happened in my 20s. I first traveled east of the Rocky Mountains in late 1996; I’ll write about that eventually.)

  5. Iโ€™ve wanted to visit Russia for YEARS! A friend and I were meant to visit last November but decided against going as the visa process was quite lengthy for how short a time weโ€™d have gone for. Glad you had a brilliant time, looking forward to more posts on your trip soon!

      Yess! I’m surprised to see most people agreeing on this because most films feature them on the darker side. Ugh. It’s a shame.

      1. Yeah, She knew a good level of English so that there was no problem in communication. By the end, she had learnt a little bit of Hindi also, lol. They are portrayed on the darker side maybe because of the way their country works and the leadership.

    1. Gosh you’ve been to St. Petersberg yayy!! It was honestly SO beautiful, wasn’t it?! Although I guess it resembled a typical European city, whereas the buildings in Moscow were different to look at. All the same, I loved them both! Ahh you should definitely visit Moscow, maybe when all of this is over. X
