Winter Fairytale In Moscow
The winter in Moscow is like a fairy tale, and one of the most beautiful times of the year to visit. There is so much to see and do! Many famous places of interest in Moscow become magical in the winter. Red Square is one of the first places to go to. With the snow falling gently, Saint Basil's Cathedral looks like a giant wedding cake covered in icing. Another place one should certainly visit is Novodevichy Convent with its lacelike towers and golden domes. When surrounded by snow, it resembles a fairy-tale castle of a beautiful princess. There are a lot of events in Moscow that can be experienced only in winter. The Russian Winter festival features performances of traditional Russian song and dance, games, crafts and ice sculptures. If you want to experience the retro charm and nostalgia of days past, there is no better place than GUM on Red Square or Eliseevsky food store on Tverskaya. In addition, there are many cafes located throughout the city if you need a hot drink or something to eat.
