Moscow is not the most popular destination for the Christmas and New Year holidays for foreigners. However, during this time you can see a different Moscow; everything is illuminated and Christmas trees are in every corner of the city. Red Square is a place of celebration where you can find a traditional ice skating rink and fireworks. Moscow is not the coldest place in Russia, nevertheless sometimes it is necessary to find a nice cafe and drink hot mulled wine which the best way to get warm. I was lucky to spend several days in Moscow with my friends, walking around and enjoying the festive mood in the heart of Russia that is throbbing fast and shining bright.
