Moscow feels like a city built for giants. The scale of the place is incredible. The roads are wide. The buildings are monumental and the parks are vast. And then, there is also the great weight of history in this ancient city.
Surely there are few other places (Berlin perhaps?) where so many momentous events have taken place. You can feel it in every brick and stone, red star and golden dome.
But then this can also be a surprisingly accessible city too.
