Russia’s Festive Trees Through Instagram

It’s Christmas time! Before you headed home for the festive season we asked you to send us some of your favorite Christmas trees, or New Year's trees, in Russia. Here are some of your best shots.

Next week, show us your favorite photo of the year. We’re looking for a photo which makes you feel proud, nostalgic, excited or amazed!

Submit your picture on Instagram by tagging us @themoscowtimes or using #themoscowtimes hashtag.

Or check out our favorite views of Moscow from last week here.

Independent journalism isn’t dead. You can help keep it alive.

As the only remaining independent, English-language news source reporting from Russia, The Moscow Times plays a critical role in connecting Russia to the world.

Editorial decisions are made entirely by journalists in our newsroom, who adhere to the highest ethical standards. We fearlessly cover issues that are often considered off-limits or taboo in Russia, from domestic violence and LGBT issues to the climate crisis and a secretive nuclear blast that exposed unknowing doctors to radiation.

As we approach the holiday season, please consider making a one-time donation — or better still a recurring donation — to The Moscow Times to help us continue producing vital, high-quality journalism about the world’s largest country.
