Travel-diary: Red Square, Moscow

Hello from Moscow!

It’s been raining a lot when we arrived, unfortunately we chose a damp, drizzly and cold summer day to go to Red Square at the heart of the city.

BUT it was pretty much worth it.

80% of the architecture here have that Turkish/Middle Eastern influence, or perhaps it is the other way round.

"Do you see the story? Do you see anything?... It seems to me I am trying to tell you a dream - making a vain attempt, because no relation of a dream can convey the dream sensation... No, it is impossible; it is impossible to convey the life-sensation of any given epoch of one's existence - that which makes its truth, its meaning - its subtle and penetrating essence. It is impossible. We live, as we dream - alone." Marlow in Heart of Darkness, Joseph Conrad.

One thought on “Travel-diary: Red Square, Moscow

  1. I’m sorry, but there’s no turkish or middle eastern influences on the architecture. It’s true russian architecture with a little influence of byzantine architecture.
