Travel Blogs from Moscow
Today didn't start out too well, weather wise, but it got nicer in the afternoon. It seemed like a good reason to check out some indoor sights instead of staying outside in the dreary coldness. I started out with the Kremlin Museums. It wasn’t exactly what I expected, because it wasn’t really like any other museum I’ve ever been to. It wasn’t one big building that housed a lot of artefacts.
