No matter during daytime or in the evening, Enthusiast makes a great, laid-back spot for drinks and light bites. Known as a “Moto Café,” the hidden bar is a place made not just for Vespa lovers, but also anyone who has an appreciation for craft beer, art and cinema. If you’re lucky, you may even stumble upon one of its garage sales and parties during your visit.
"GUM is not just a store where you can buy almost everything. It is a shopping block where there is a pharmacy, bank branch, and flower shop ... It is a monument of architecture. It is a comfortable lounge area with restaurants and cafes. It is an art gallery and venue for cultural events. It is an integral part of Russian history. It is a symbol of Moscow and it is the closest place to the Kremlin, where you can feel yourself in Europe."

Strogino is a remote residential neibourhood on the northwest end of Moscow, famous for its greenery, water space and barbecue. My good friends, photographers Anastasia Tsayder and Petr Antonov live here. The picture was taken from their balcony. Their place is known as 'photohostel' as many visiting photographers stay with them when they stop over in Moscow.

Red October is a former industrial area in central Moscow that's included a chocolate factory Red October, hence the name. Today it's one of the most flamboyant altough inconveniently located cultural quarters, full of art galleries, bars, fashion stores, a design school, night clubs and edtiorial offices of magazines. The photo (depicting a rather typical business redevelopment on the other shore of the Moskva River) was taken from a terrace that's part of the editorial office of Bolshoi Gorod magazine for which I have the privilege to photograph from time to time.
