  1. Not at all, just go there and buy your ticket like anybody else. And no need to spend money on an organized tour, public transportation is fun, convenient and cheap 🙂
  2. Again took the kids with me yesterday to visit Kubinka's Park Patriot, nicknamed "The Russian Military Disneyland" by western media.

The place is huge, I mean HUGE and we rented bicycles to move around and avoid waiting the shuttle buses every time.

  10. My 3rd visit to this beautiful place, no new exhibits but better lighting for my 24-105mm. Taken today morning, enjoy!
