It so happened that in the same house on Bolshaya Sadovaya street are just TWO «Bulgakov’s House» – one cultural center and the other – «The bad apartment» described in the «Master and Margarita». Now «50» is the state Museum of M.A. Bulgakov», and close to the first floor of the cultural center Museum of Bulgakov’s house. He’s  working  late.

See for yourself who lies under the feet of the «Bulgakov’s house».  I’m not just once or twice a year – from the moment when, as in 2005, she moved to Moscow. This was one of my first Moscow walks. Surprisingly, but every time I come back here for new and new occasions. Now, here is a small exhibition and a cafe, where is very convenient to meet. Not so long time ago, and theatre. I like to see from a dilapidated apartment eventually grew a real cultural centre.

Perhaps the dramatic gap between creator and creation because Vladimir looks toward the center of Moscow , the Kremlin.

This year, Triumph Square became almost completely pedestrian . In the vicinity Mayakovka best time for walking in the winter – this evening when all the lights are lit , and the public rushes into theaters . Summer time of day does not really matter.

Same with the monument height of the Christmas tree. Vladimir Mayakovsky is known more as a poet, but , in fact , he was also a playwright and director. On the right hand of the monument is the Concert Hall named after PI Tchaikovsky behind him – Satire Theatre , Theatre Mossovet .

Mayakovskaya is one of the most beautiful stations of the Moscow metro. There is a myth that there are fragments of its design “airship Tsiolkovsky.” It is not so, although the legend was born from a real period in the history of the station.

It turns out that in the first project of Mayakovskaya station has not been properly taken into account subsidence. Therefore, the ceiling cracks began to appear. To save the situation, the architect Alexey Dushkin suggested using metal structures and invite collaborators station famous aircraft  Alexander Putilin. And he decided that they can make experts in the building airships. So the «Tsiolkovsky’s Dirigible» at the station no, but the metal constructions are made on the same hardware – like Atlanta columns support the ceiling. The station was opened for passengers of 11 September 1938, and was recently reconstructed. Experts assure that everything is okay, Mayakovskaya not accumulated and not flowing!

10 best hostels in Europe

03.10.2013

The word «hostel» can be translated literally into English as «hostel European». «European»-in this case, is considered a kind of standard arrangement of the hostel. This is first of all a good design of the room, quality furniture, high quality service, affordable rates and comfortable accommodation in one space up to 10-15 guests. A so-called «co-working» is a single space for work and communication on interests of different groups of people.

For example, in Germany, according to the edition «The Guardian» the most quality and affordable considered in this season hostel Berlin «Berlin Plus».

By Moscow standards, frankly, they usually look like a decent modern large apartment for instance in Sokolniki, with IKEA furniture and bright colour filling interior items.

The main item on the version of the same edition of this season came hostel Ostello Bello», Milan, Italy. The guests Ostello Bello meets a free drink. A delicious Breakfast (you can ask the chef to cook at any time of the day) is already included in the price. Your Luggage can be placed in a special box under the bed. After long walks guests are offered a terrace to relax on a hammock. Pricing policy from 28 Euro per night (approximately 1200руб).

But it seems to me that for a bed in a dormitory, even in 4-bed room and a delicious Breakfast is expensive. In Moscow, for example, the most expensive price for a good bed in a hostel with a design renovation will have to pay a maximum of 1000 rubles.

Anyway, European rating shows that tourists are happy throughout Europe around the clock. Even in the small European village, you can always find a decent sleeper in the friendly guest house. We, in Russia, in addition to the two capitals, Moscow and St. Petersburg this kind of hotel services are underdeveloped. Tourists are offered expensive for the regions of the hotel, designed mainly for transit tourists, have relatively few options.
