Trans-Siberian Railway Journey (2/5)


Below are some of my favourite photographs taken whilst on holiday in 1994 when I travelled from Moscow to Vladivostok on the Trans-Siberian Railway.




Opposite the Kremlin is the famous department store GUM. After the revolution this was a market with farm workers selling their produce but now it is full of famous brand name shops.








This is a view of one of the decorative fountains in GUM viewed from above.







The Moscow Metro train stations are decorated like small palaces. In particular notice the marble on the walls, the plasterwork on the ceiling and the lighting which is different in every station. It is difficult to take good photographs because there are so many people using the stations.







This was our first view of the train at Moscow - our home for the next four days.
