Just back from a whistle-stop trip to Moscow where I gave a talk on British Contemporary Interior Design at an interior design conference. Managed to squeeze in a very full day of sight-seeing in and around the Kremlin. It was quite something to stand in the middle of Red Square with the whimsical onion domes of St. Basil’s Cathedral in one direction and Lenin’s mausoleum in another. The late afternoon sun caught the gold leaf domes of the Kremlin’s churches and ruby glass of the Soviet stars on top of the steeples of the Kremlin’s towers and a warm spring breeze carried the scent of lilacs through the vastness of Red Square.
Moscow is quite possibly at its most beautiful in May. Have a look.
