I visited Moscow for the first time last month and the coldest months in Moscow are January and February. Winters can be extremely harsh in Russia and the temperate averages about -10ºC when I was there.

The 7 of us braved the insanely cold weather to see Red Square and Saint Basil’s Cathedral.

Matryoshka Doll

One of the famous souvenirs to buy is the Matryoshka doll (Russian nested doll). There is a doll inside a doll inside another doll and so on.

With the abundance of snow available, I built this big snowman outside the hotel with some help. It was tiring to roll the snow to build the snowman and right after we built it, we realized that snowman should have three portions and not two. Oops!

I was too greedy to make such a big snowman that I had backache the next day. But… the fun and joy of building snowman made it all worthwhile. 🙂
