Mogilev, Belarus - 25th February 2010

By: Elen

I near to a monument to soldiers-internationalists. It is constructed in honour to all Belorussians who were die in wars outside of the native land, since ancient times and up to now. For example, the Belarus division has been first thrown to Afghanistan. Thousand Belarus guys were lost, because of the Soviet heads.

I on river Dnepr quay. This main river of a city. Earlier it was navigable. But the climate has changed, and the river has shoaled.

Anchor on quay of Dnepr – the only symbol today, that it was navigable.

Building of the main bank in Mogilev before October revolution. Today here a museum named by Maslennikov (painter).

I near to the astrologer. The monument to the astrologer stands in city centre. It is surrounded with 12 chairs symbolising 12 astrological signs. At night from a telescope the powerful beam shining.

I near to a monument of Lenin. It is before a building of Regional executive committee, a principal organ of our area (the American equivalent of area - state). In 30th years when the western Belarus was under the Polish occupation, it has been decided to transfer the Belarus capital from Minsk to Mogilev, this building was constructed. But after an attack of Germany to Poland in 1939, the Soviet armies have attached the western Belarus back, and carrying over of capital has not been carried out.

Luberci, Russia - 16th May 2010

By: TaisAfinskaia

Hello mummy!
I`m in Russia!
Maria picked up me from the post and not only me! Dusel has arrived with me.
It is my first day in Russia, but I have already seen the most important place for me here: the main post-office in Moscow. It is big that`s why the post-boxes are huge as well.

And on my way home I decided to make a picture with interesting building:

Quote:
The Lubyanka is the popular name for the headquarters of the KGB and affiliated prison on Lubyanka Square in Moscow. It is a large building with a facade of yellow brick, designed by Alexander V. Ivanov in 1897 and augmented by Aleksey Shchusev in 1940-1947.

The Lubyanka was originally built in 1898 as the Neo-Baroque headquarters of the All-Russia Insurance Company, noted for its beautiful parquet floors and pale green walls. Belying its massiveness, the edifice avoids an impression of heroic scale: isolated Palladian and Baroque details, such as the minute pediments over the corner bays and the central loggia, are lost in an endlessly-repeating classicizing palace facade, where three bands of cornices emphasize the horizontal lines. A clock is centered in the uppermost band of the facade.

Following the Bolshevik Revolution, the structure was seized by the government for the headquarters of the secret police, then called the Cheka. In Soviet Russian jokes it was referred to as the tallest building in Moscow, since Siberia could be seen from its basement. Another joke referred to the building as "Adult's World" as compared to "Children's World," the name of the popular toy store across the street.


Hope soon you`ll see many new photos with me :)

Yours,
fai

Tsaritsino, Moscow, Russia - 23rd May 2010

By: TaisAfinskaia

Privet mommy!
How did you spend your great week-end? I had a pleasant walk in very large and luxurious park Tsaritsino ("Tsar" and "Tsaritsa" are "King" and "Queen" in Russian). This park is so beautiful that Catherina II bought it for 25 000 rubles in spite of the fact its owner asked only 20 000.
Here is a piece of history 

Quote:
Tsaritsino museum and reserve in Moscow was founded in 1984 in the park of the same name. The estate is known from the late 16th century, when it belonged to Tsarica Irina, sister of Tsar Boris Godunov. At that time it was called Bogorodskoye. In the 17th century it belonged to the Streshnevs and then to the Galitzines. In 1775, when the estate was bought by empress Catherine the Great, it received its present name, which means “Tsarina’s”. In 1776-85 architect Vasili Bazhenov built a new palace for the Empress here, but in 1786 Catherine ordered it to be partly pulled down. Until 1797 architect Matvey Kazakov was working on the construction, but the palace remained unfinished. Currently, in Tsaritsino there are a history and architecture museum, a landscape park with an adjacent forest, an art museum, the Biryulyovo dendropark, and a cascade of the Tsaritsino ponds.

Bazhenov's "Opera House", 1776-1778.The 18th-century architecture ensemble was built (though not finished) following the order of Catherine II in pseudo-Gothic style, after projects of the Bazhenov and Kazakov, and it is the only 18th-century architectural ensemble of such dimensions in Russia. Around the palace, in the park there are a number of pavilions, pergolas, arbours, artificial grottos, decorative bridges (early 19th century, architect I. Yegotov), and a Russian Orthodox temple “Source of Life”, as well as a modern recreation center with an upscale restaurant. For a long time most buildings were ruined (and alpinists used them for training). Recently most buildings have been "completed": rooftops, interiors and decorations have been added and their historical appearance has been altered. A number of buildings house the Russian museum of folk and applied art. The atrium of the “Bread House” is used for concerts of Moscow musicians. 


As you can see I have new friend Chengzi, he is the same size as myself so we can have fun together without fright to crush each other (all other TVs are very small)  :stare:
I climbed the castle wall, watched the area and when got tired I sat on the gras and smelled the flowers. Such a pleasure!

Yours,
fai.

Moscow, Russia - 30th May 2010

By: TaisAfinskaia

Hello mummy!
On Sunday I had a bicycle trip through Moscow - just to move faster.
First we saw the exhibition of Russian architect Zurab Tsereteli:

Quote:
Zurab Konstantines dze Tsereteli (born January 4, 1934 in Tbilisi) is a controversial Georgian-Russian painter, sculptor and architect who holds the office of President of the Russian Academy of Arts. 


He has museum of his arts, but we were only in the yard where there are enough sculptures. Some of them are really funny. 

Then we went to Red Square, but I made picture only near it with the monument to Georgy Zhukov:
Quote:
Marshal of the Soviet Union Georgy Konstantinovich Zhukov (December 1 [O.S. November 19] 1896 – June 18, 1974) was a Russian career officer in the Red Army who, in the course of World War II, played a pivotal role in leading the Red Army through much of Eastern Europe to liberate the Soviet Union and other nations from the Axis Powers' occupation and conquer Germany's capital, Berlin. He is the most decorated general in the history of both Russia and the Soviet Union.


After all these trips and photos we decided just relax and have a dinner in Vietnamese restaurant  :p

Bye for now,
fai

Kiev, Ukraine - 13th June 2010

By: TaisAfinskaia

Hello dear mummy!
I visited one more country of ex-Soviet Union! I was in Belarus, in Russia and now I`m in Ukraine!

Quote:
Kiev or Kyiv is the capital and the largest city of Ukraine, located in the north central part of the country on the Dnieper River. The population as of the 2001 census was 2,611,300. However, higher numbers have been cited in the press.

Kiev is an important industrial, scientific, educational and cultural centre of Eastern Europe. It is home to many high-tech industries, higher education institutions and world-famous historical landmarks. The city has an extensive infrastructure and highly developed system of public transport, including the Kiev Metro. Kiev was classified as a Beta world city- as of 2004.

We took the train and in 13 hours were in Kiev.
My day began with great breakfast - fruit tea, porridge and sandwiches!
Then we took some pictures with interesting places. It was very hot in Kiev (+35!) and I enjoyed my staying in the special ground-fountain in the centre of the city.
People in Ukraine are football fans (as in the whole world :) ) and I took a chance to make photo with football players poster at the bus stop.
As you can see mummy I spent great week-end!

Hugs,
fai.

Moscow, Russia - 9th July 2010

By: TaisAfinskaia

Hello mummy! Today I was in the heart of Russia - Red Square!

Quote:
Red Square is a city square in Moscow. The square separates the Kremlin, the former royal citadel and currently the official residence of the President of Russia, from a historic merchant quarter known as Kitai-gorod. As major streets of Moscow radiate from here in all directions, being promoted to major highways outside the city, Red Square is often considered the central square of Moscow and all of Russia.


I saw GUM department store, Kremlin Towers and St.Basil`s Cathedral which I liked the most!
