I awoke to my last day in Moscow and in Russia. Although the train wasn't leaving until the evening I was still able to use my room until then so after breakfast and a quick and rough packing the day began.

Back to the corner of Old Arbat, I slipped back down into the metro to make for Tverskaya Street and home of Moscow's 1st McDonalds and supposedly the world's busiest.

We arrived about 11am and walked in groups to the front entrance. This impressive gate is called Beautiful Tower and is richly decorated with frescoes of St Sergius.
