Russian parking rules, Caucasian cuisine and upcoming holidays
Monday. Homemade khinkali [Georgian dumplings]. This dish came to us from Caucasian cuisine. They differ from Russians’ beloved Siberian pelmeni by the method of consumption — usually by grasping the “tail” of the dough with the fingers.
Tuesday. Sculptures at Rimskaya Station inside the Moscow Metro. Residents of Moscow, who use the subway on a daily basis, are no longer awed by the beauty of the stations. But for tourists, the Moscow Metro is like an underground museum, which everyone wants to visit. There are even special tours for foreigners. And before you physically arrive in Russia, you can take a virtual stroll around the stations.
Wednesday. Russians, like most people in the world, cannot imagine life without the Internet and mobile gadgets, from small to large! Russian pensioners, too, want to get into the mainstream.
Friday. A cat is man's best friend. They are sympathetic listeners and good playmates. According to research, Russians have become, meaner, more insolent, more prone to conflict, and have largely lost all sense of self-control. Come evening, all that remains to do is put the nervous system in order. A cat’s purring relaxes a person, calming the human nervous system.
Saturday. A police car parked at the gates of the Moscow Kremlin. Starting this year, it is no longer free to park inside the Garden Ring. How much does it cost to leave your vehicle by the walls of the Kremlin?
Sunday. Ahead of the last working week before the long New Year break, Russians are already prepared as best as can be to celebrate. New Year bustle is all around. Learn more about the New Year holidays in Russia.
