a little deeper away from the typical tourist spots and you'll be amazed at the stories that each building an area of the city has. the. first of the bolshoi it must go on its keep bridge is a concrete bridge that spans the most caribbean and can expose shadow i think a street with red square immediately east of the kremlin built in one hundred thirty seven the bridge has a total width of forty meters eights colleen's and its total length with approach ramps is five hundred and fifty four meters. is pretty extreme or quite on the left of the some of the best views in russia and its be points are used by all russian and international television channels. and we now past the department store goom the building built between eighteen nineteen eighty and ninety three features an interesting combination of elements of russian medieval architecture and a steel framework and glass roof
8:33 am
a similar style to the great nineteenth century train stations of london. today this. hundred forty two metre long building boasts a luxurious shopping arcade although it's not cheap so maybe it's best to stick to cultural excursions instead. passing the reconstructed orthodox cathedral of our lady of khazan at the bottom of red square we pass through the resurrection gates is here next to the tacky tourist stalls and just in front of the iberian chapel but you can find a bronze plaque on the cobbled floor that gets lots of attention from locals and tourists one thing here is a small coin. ok and here we have it the famous spot so close my eyes make us afraid the korean. ferry or i hope it comes true as the spot from where all distances from moscow are measured apparently it's good luck to throw
8:34 am
a coin over your shoulder. so far everything is beautiful. i'm still trying to figure out exactly where things are and where i have to see people have been friendly it doesn't seem to have a really small center like a really big area would be a big crowds. and by beautiful the buildings are amazing is my first day in the city and i already love it moscow is beautiful splendid in grand. proving all angus need lord translates as guest house is a large buildings to couple of minutes walk from the kremlin from the fourteenth century the area was the epicenter of trade in moscow with merchants around the world arriving to the spot the building we see now is a result of a major research ration that took place in the one nine hundred ninety s. making it a large business trade and cultural center to host numerous offense each month. mixed up with a brief what's the top left hand side of the kremlin for many years the splendid
8:35 am
palace of white stone the stands on the back of ski hill has a maze people and is. considered to be one of the most peaceful buildings in the russian capital the situation of the building is rather unorthodox two says the main entrance is from a side street and not from the facade which you can see here move ring around the corner take a look at this pretty courtyard this building was erected between seventy eighty four and seven hundred eighty six by the russian nobleman short rapacious often interesting enough it was also used as a meeting place for various charities of course famous novel and margarita very striking building and much reality it was once moscow's first public library in the nineteenth century and today the palaces current owner is the russian state library i wonder looks like inside let's find out. moving inside it's almost like going back in time because here is all bright historic and
8:36 am
grand. just shook at this room wow you can imagine the space being used for large parties instead it was used for bookworms although it looks like a boring the space was actually used as a library for most of its time. and looking through the window in the second floor here i think this room might have one of the best views in russia. the building is believed to have been designed by famous washed architect of a silly version of no documented evidence of his involvement with the house exists however as the records of question of projects were lost in a fire at the moscow town planning archives. two books now and let's take a look at one of the libraries here today the right wing of the pack of house houses the my scripts department while it's left wing houses the music department and the maps apartments of the russian state library. it's rather strange to hold
8:37 am
a book which is hundreds of years old this is called scripts he is in great condition i wonder why people held it before me. even more interesting is that the depths of the area underneath the passage of house is said to be one of the several possible locations of the legendary library of ivan the terrible now that is something i would like to see. moving on and the new. as it's known in russian is a contemporary central exhibition hall the venue houses dozens of various displays annually that interests me enough the building was not meant as a cultural venue in the first place in eight hundred eighty eight the structure was erected as the first power plant in the center of moscow but it was abandoned shortly to become. vast modern gallery a century later. to our next location
8:38 am
now and not all the museums around in the kremlin are dedicated to history and art those who are interested in nature don't need to travel further from the city center as well as moscow's oldest and not just some logical museum is located just a short walk from red square this museum of the moscow state university was founded in seventy nine he won and since then gather funds that make it in the first ten of such collections in the world she teaches display represents all kinds of animals like truly inhabit our planet it's easy and comprehensive to walk around the museum as the displays organized in a systematic order so that visitors can explore various species from single celled organisms to began a mess like the one behind my back. don't be surprised if you see many students while walking around the kremlin as the building across the street from the midwest square is home to the faculty of journalism of the moscow state university. the university bears the name of the
8:39 am
outstanding scientists of the eighteenth century the north off. known as the old university building the main complex was moved to the spring hills area in the middle of the twentieth century and now it's the future journalists who are lucky to study right in the heart of moscow. our final location on the edge square is the moscow logical museum. the physical changes between mediƦval moscow to the modern day capital are quite significant in the various models situated in the museum you can see buildings and street plans for the various stages in history all of the main differences is the existence of a river which once used to lie along. top side of the kremlin where moscow was rebuilt after the fire of eighteen twelve the glyn i recall was confined to an
8:40 am
underground tunnel several years later and the bridge was buried interesting stuff like a visual history book at the museum here you can see if yourselves how the city's changing cityscape came into effect the museum opened in one hundred ninety seven i was located seven meters underground on the exact spot where a large archeological dig took place during the mid ninety's ninety's the main space is sensitive around this part reconstruction of the old seventeenth century bridge which you can see here and during the excavations a whole range of other items such as metal coins and household objects were also found many of which you can also see on display here inside the museum. the team involved in the project militia late foundations of stone buildings from the eighteenth much centuries they also discovered kabul and wooden streets as well as chambers and other structures. allowed to discover traces of the handicraft

industry and to reconstruct the life of people who inhabited this district centuries ago none of these small touring mannish square not many people realise that they are walking on top of the museum but nevertheless on venue is popular and there are even more visitors during weekends when we are experienced interactive educational events. whether it is through its beauty or grotesqueness may be up for debate but what can be denied is that moscow inspires and has done for hundreds of years as a city almost eight hundred seventy years old moscow has many reminders of extra massive past and for visitors and even locals it's quite often the small and intricate sights and locations that make up the cultural thread work of the city. yes the kremlin might be the powerhouse and provide the fabulous photo opportunities but it's. the areas around command mogs which also hold by two stories to the makeup of the city. well you'll sadly be impressed with the
