Moscow 10
Explore Moscow and get photographed by a professional photographer. Moscow is full of unique photographic spots. And one the pleasures of traveling is to convert memories into pictures. Beautiful, crisp images enable us to live through the most adventurous moments of a journey again and again. Pictures speak better than words when we share impressions with friends and family. But it's hard to get a picture of yourself when you travel solo. Even for 2-3 people taking photos can be difficult - one person hides behind the camera and the group is never together.

Moscow 7
Use the subway, as well as being beautiful from the aesthetic point of view, it's very practical. The only downside is that is that it's only in Cyrillic script, but you just have to get organised and then it's easy to get around. As well as this, Moscow is very good value when you consider the standard of living, and there is wifi (great for use with tablets and smartphones maps).
