I spent xmas 2015 in Moscow. Extremely random and brave. But, I came back alive so...
Russia was never a "hotspot" on my mind like that. Especially in light of the current WW3 that's brewing, racism and the weather. Bottom line is, I went and I'm back.
Regardless, it is a beautiful city but I have no business there so I doubt I'll be returning. Russia's been ticked off the list.
The Red Square is not called that because the exterior is red but because 'Red' meant 'Beautiful'. So this is the 'Beautiful Square'. I find it a bit freaky tbh. Like something out of a Disney movie.

Admission was free but we weren't allowed cameras etc. It's really beautiful inside. Every bit of the walls are covered in art or scriptures with visitors lighting their candles and bowing at the photos of their 'idols'. I didn't partake but it was nice/ interesting to watch.

Don't let the clear skies fool you. It was freezing!!!
I don't know why, but the power station in the middle of the city fascinated me.
