Moscow, the Space Race, Lenin’s Dwelling and more. (Grigoriy in Russia)

We arrived to Moscow by train which took about 7 hours but we slept in comfortable cabins so the time went by really quickly. Upon our arrival we started our bus tour immediately.  Here are some of my favorite moments.

One of Russia’s biggest achievements was in the Space race, when the first hunan being was succesfully sent into outer space and back.  That was a man named Yuriy Gagarin; a true Russian hero.  Here are some cool pictures of the Space museum.

If you want to experience the business world in Russia, even if you’re not trying to find a job, but just to practice your business Russian skills, make sure to take some time out of your busy schedule and check this out.  The career forum for young adults is geared towards college students to find internships, and includes some of the biggest Russian companies, banks, and the likes.  Here are a few pictures to show you the global scale of American companies like Coca-Cola, and the prominence of equally well known companies in Russia.

Lenin’s Place of Dwelling

This building is under very high security; we actually needed to bring our passports before going in.  It’s where Lenins apartment was, take a look as I walk you through the pictures .
