When it comes to travelling, it’s every photographer’s dream to capture the immense beauty of the world.
From frozen lakes, beautiful crystal-clear waters of tropical islands, exotic animals in the savannah and the architectural beauty of palaces in distant lands, the world is a mysteriously enchanting place. And Russia is no stranger when it comes to heart-captivating scenery.
Known as a winter wonderland, the country has so much to offer to tourists and photographers from all over the world!
If you’re planning to travel to Russia during the winters this year to capture its beauty, here are a few ways you can make your visit memorable:
Visit the Sparrow Hills
If you want to capture the immense beauty of Moscow, Sparrow Hills is the perfect spot to achieve this. It’s a university that is known as Stalin’s ‘Seven Sisters’—one of the first Soviet skyscrapers, peaking the Moscow skyline. It also serves as a park for students and as a favorite hangout place for locals.
If you want to capture the city covered in snow, the view from the top of the building covers different distances and you will be able to capture the city’s best tourist spots without interruption.
Krasnyoktyabr translates to ‘Red October’ and used to be a chocolate factory, known for its product, “Alyonka”. It is now one of the most popular hubs of the cities, where youngsters gather to hangout.
It is also one of the warmest places in the city. The building itself is a sight to see—red, classical and magnificent.
It’s the perfect place to photograph and visit galleries, boxing clubs and meet creative souls.
Capture the Beauty of Modern-Day Russia at Gorky Park
The park was built in Soviet Russia and had several Soviet-designed architectures. It has recently been revamped and cleaned.
The Soviet attractions have been remodeled and several cafés have been opened. The locals gather to play ping-pong, chess and the park even hosts dancing lessons to dance enthusiasts. It is the perfect place to capture the beauty of modern-day Russia. It is also the place where the biggest European ice-skating rink is!
The park is quite small and cozy but it’s the place to find the best Russian food and music. It has a small play area for children, several restaurants and even hosts concerts from time to time.
The place is full of families who visit regularly. It hosts festivals as well but perhaps the beauty of the park is that no matter how small it is, it never feels crowded!
