Fall is coming to Russia: rain, traffic jams and MAKS-2013
Monday. "Monday’s a rough day," millions of working Muscovites drag themselves to work. But in Moscow, there are also those who have paid their debts to their country and their family and now enjoy some much-deserved relaxation. Almost every day in Catherine Park, retirees gather to dance together. See how else senior citizens in Russia entertain themselves in our gallery.
Tuesday. The main event of the last days of August was the International Aviation and Space Salon in Zhukovsky. A pair of fascinating SU-27s danced a fatally dangerous waltz to the thunderous accompaniment of their own jet engines. Find out everything about MAKS-2013 here.
Wednesday. Russia has many faces. A typical Moscow apartment block on Ulitsa Izumrudnaya in the Babushkinsky District. Russian street art on RBTH’s pages.
Thursday. It seems like the tops of Moscow City’s skyscrapers were chomped on by a huge set of teeth or that they were painted with a white brush in Photoshop. Fall is coming to the city. But Fall is the best time for reading. Read as the Russians do with RBTH’s special project, “Read Russia”.
Friday. After the work week is over, you want to break free! Light a fire, set up a tent, put your kayak together after the fifth try and float down the river in the company of good friends. The most interesting tourist routes in our Travel section.
Saturday. Fishing is any guy’s excuse and a matter of principle for a real man. Read where and how to fish in Russia here.
Sunday. The last Sunday of summer is one of the scariest days for Moscow’s drivers. Everyone’s back from vacation and everyone has to go somewhere… Sitting in the city’s frightening traffic jams, people entertain themselves any way they can. Read about the war on traffic jams in Moscow here.
