Moscow is huge.  Half of it is the exotic, elaborate yet primitive look of Russian orthodoxy, while the other half has the Communist imprint on it of functionalism and minimalism.   Both elements seem to be continually at war with each other in the city's architecture, as indeed perhaps in the Russian soul, as well. 

Who could forget the Kremlin, Red Square, St. Basil's  Cathedral, the Armory, the Pushkin Museum?  As well as the souvenir salespeople with their lacquer goods, patroushka dolls, and Russian hats?  And what of the Bolshoi and the Russian Circus?
