Victory day is coming to Moscow!

Dear friends! Let me congratulate you with warm days coming back to Moscow and remind you of the upcoming Victory Day celebration which takes place on the 9th of May. On this day, Muscovites congratulate the veterans of the Second World War (also known in Russia as the Great Patriotic War) with their victory over Nazis in May 1945. People go out onto the streets and give flowers to the veterans who look their best in their military uniforms and shining medals on. I offer you to take part in our celebration and get bright and beautiful photos of yourself at this traditional event. The weather on this day is always sunny!

Under a plane wing

When you look at the planes from the ground, they are just like small birds floating across the sky. But when you take a closer look, you will feel that they are gigantic and strong animals. You can feel the power of these iron birds if you get to Sheremetyevo Airport and park under the line of landing!

The sculptural group "Make Way for Ducklings"

The sculptural group "Make Way for Ducklings" in Moscow is a duplicate of the sculpture, which is located in Boston, USA. In 1991, Barbara Bush gave this sculpture to Raisa Gorbacheva and the work is still displayed in the park not far from the Novodevichy Convent.

This sculpture is a gift to the children of the Soviet Union from the children of the United States in the spirit of love and friendship. The idea was taken after the famous American fairy tale "Make Way for Ducklings" written by Robert McCloskey.
