Moscow on the threshold of oncoming changes, a city so big and friendly, with a very comfortable atmosphere to live in. Moscow of the XXth century, still vivid in memory but so far from the current reality, with a children’s sand playground opposite the Bolshoi Theatre; at the Red Square there are firemen of futuristic look, parading, housewives laundering men’s shirts in the Moscow river, elks reveling by Moscow University’s main building, and the top-class kindergarten in the neighbourhood of Textilschiki.
