From Russia with Love
Between 9 and 23th of March I was in Moscow for the second time.This time I stayed in President Otel which has built during the Soviet Era for meetings and accomodation of Communist Party members. The hotel was huge but old fashioned. The location is near Polyanka metro station and is close to city center.
Before arrival I was concerned about bad weather conditions, but it was not as bas as I guessed. It did not snow so heavily during my visit. And when it snowed the roads are cleaned immediately , the problem is with the sidewalks where snow turned into a stone-like structure and very slippy.
