Also got taken on my first summer boat trip - absolutely loved the winter icebreaker boat version - which must be one of the best ways to see any city. There are various cruises, but we went on the shuttle boat (with several stops) from Novospasskiy bridge to Kievskiy Vokzal (Kievskaya station).
I am an accidental Muscovite, swopping a lifetime in London for Russia. Join me in the confusions, pleasures and - hopefully - moments of insight that going somewhere else can provoke.

If you have enjoyed this blog, then come and visit me elsewhere - now I have found myself accidentally in Sydney, Australia. This is a city that seems very straightforward on the surface - so I hope to look behind appearances.
