No, it's not a scene from 'Don't Look Now', but a scene from every mother's nightmare -
the kid running loose in slippery conditions next to a fountain. This one's in Moscow, but I've
long forgotten whereabouts except that it was in a park somewhere fairly close to Red
Square. In everything I'd read about the Russian capital, the streets were gloomy, imposing
architecture gave it an austere, forbidding look and the people were dour, unfriendly and
stolid. That's not the Moscow that I saw, even though I mainly saw the place through a
terrible hangover. I felt an almost holiday atmosphere, there was much to admire in the
architecture (and quite a lot of it from the Art Deco era, which was a surprise) and the
streets buzzing with life. Maybe a massive clean-up campaign had brightened everything up,
but I found the Kremlin - at least the bits you can see of it from Red Sq. - and the
Lubyanka, the infamous NKVD prison, to be the most distinctive 'buildings' in a fascinating
city. I say 'buildings', but the Kremlin is a vast collection of state and religious buildings, a
state-within-a-state, that in earlier times kept the whole of Moscow safe behind those
massive walls.
