THIS PLACE HAS AMAZED ME ABOUT THE MANY LUXURIOUS INFLUENCES OF THE NUVEAU RICHE. THE CITY INSPIRED ME ENORMOUSLY WITH ITS TWO-SIDEDNESS. ON THE ONE HAND THE LUXURY BRANDS AND SHOPS, THE BIZARRE LUXURY RESTAURANTS WHERE YOU GET A CHAIR FOR YOUR HANDBAG AND ON THE OTHER HAND THE RUSSIA THAT WE KNOW FROM BEFORE THE TIME OF THE SOVIET UNION. THE KREMLIN AND THE RED SQUARE WERE LIKE BEING IN A FAIRYTALE, UNREASONABLY BEAUTIFUL. AND THE SURPRISING THING ABOUT THIS TRIP WAS THAT I FELT VERY MUCH AT HOME BECAUSE OF MY SLAVIC ROOTS, WHICH HAD MANY SIMILARITIES WITH RUSSIANS BECAUSE OF THE CROATIAN LANGUAGE AND THE CULTURE.
