Finally it happened! Spring arrived in Moscow and as always it more or less came over a night! But I am not complaining.
The winter in Moscow has been almost unbearable. So dark, so cold and so long! The feeling when you put your winter boots in the wardrobe and take out your rosé gold sneakers… pure happiness!
All of a sudden you want to leave the nest, the cozy apartment, and go out to explore the new vibrant life that is waiting outside. Moscow transformed from a grey and beige city into a colorful and warm one in a couple of hours and all of a sudden you could see some smile on the usually so burly faces.
Moscow Dressed in Spring
We found cute photo spots everywhere a long the streets we have walked so many times before. The effect of the sun and 15 degrees is just amazing!
The Sunny “Ponds”
The streests of Patriarshi pond – our favorite area in Moscow – quickly got filled with people enjoying the sun. The pond is slowly but surely melting and the restaurants quickly got filled with sun dwellers like us.
Days like this you do not want to get in, slowly but surely filling up the D vitamin gap that the dark winter has created.
What can be a better way to end a sunny day than with a lovely dinner at Twins, one of my favorite restaurants in Patriarshi, with our dear friends Olga & Fred.
When Red Square Turns into Insta Heaven
In Moscow everything is possible and decoration in all styles is one of the things that Moscow knows how to do .
In the East the cherry tree blossoms in full and if you do not have real ones, why not create some of your own? Still I must say, I loved these fake pink blossoms. Red square and its surroundings have never been so instagramable before!
With spring comes a new mood, new expectations and best of all, in two weeks it is time for vacation and some traveling again! Hope spring has arrived also to you! Lots of love from Moscow!
