To get the full Moscow experience, we jumped onto the Moscow Metro and headed to the Red Square. The metro was stunning, with many stations made of marble and decorated with statues. The downside for a tourist was that all the signs were in Cyrillic!
At the Red Square, we visited St Basil’s Cathedral and the GUM department store as well as admired the outside of Lenin’s Mausoleum and the Kremlin – taking in the atmosphere and tonnes of pictures!
In the evening we met our climbing team from Adventure Peaks, which included: Dan, Dave, Tim, Neil, Wilf and MJ as well as Rob, our British expedition leader who normally works in Antarctica!
