... built in 1924 - I think, if I understood the tourist info correctly, it was rebuilt in the '70s. The 16th century St.Basil's Cathedral aka Cathedral of the Intercession of the Virgin by the Moat was quite fascinating with its maze of rooms, narrow, and very steep stairways, tiny chapels - one, with the most amazing acoustics, had an acapella group producing angelic music.

You fix in your brain the names of the interchanges as well. However, the number of stops is crucial because you don't freakin' know how to pronounce the names of the stops. You do gradually learn to recognize the names of stops you most often use when they are ...

All the station stops were written on maps and in stations in Cyrillic which gave most of the stations long names and included symbols that weren’t recognisable to someone like me, and I would believe, most westerners.
