Such is Moscow today. But take a look at the street signs: Arbat, Varvarka, Ordynka, Pliushikha, Neglinnaya... The scent of the past comes through these every day names. Jagged Kremlin walls, boyars' chambers of white stone, czars' country estates, colorful Dutch tiles, traditional old churches this is also Moscow. Even though the oldest Russian city is whimsically inconsistent there are places that enshrine the memories of history, people and events in spite of any changes around and these are the museums.

We try to illustrate not only the world...
