Mikhail Shemyakin, Russian pubs & cow on the Old Arbat street
Monday: Despite the fact that Paris is often called the “City of Lights”, all you have to do is walk around night-time Moscow to see that the French capital has serious competition. And if you visit its local English pubs, you’ll also think that there’s something to compete with.
Tuesday: Moscow’s boulevards, lit by a soft light, illuminate Muscovites’ walks. Tverskoy, Gogolevsky, and Chistoprudny Boulevards have long been a traditional place for street photo exhibitions from all corners of the world. Those who fear the October breeze can view Natalia Goncharova’s exhibition at the Tretyakov Gallery.
Wednesday: All those who decide to see Old Arbat, one of Moscow’s oldest streets, will encounter this dazed cow’s glance. The street celebrated its anniversary this year.
Friday: RBTH’s employees don’t mind shining in the spotlight to shed light on the Russian film industry’s current events.
Saturday: It’s possible to give genuine, warm feelings even to graceful and tender forms made of cold metal. The expert in doing so is the sculptor Mikhail Shemyakin, who received American citizenship this week.
Sunday: But an old Soviet car, hidden in the courtyards of the provincial town of Kubinka, Russia, reminds local residents of the Soviet auto industry’s one-time prominence.
