Moscow Lights Up for the Holidays

The Christmas season has finally come to Moscow!

While the city has yet to see a thick blanket of snow, Muscovites can still enjoy the many vibrant decorations adorning the city.

Kilometers of garlands will line the streets and the entire city center will be lit up, including Red Square's famous ice skating rink.

Moscow’s famous TSUM department store has also been decorated in the Christmas spirit with traditionally dressed shop-girls selling gifts for loved ones.

We wish you a happy holiday from the The Moscow Times!
