I love Moscow – its history, parks, long embankments, and cozy streets in the center of town with their cafes hidden underneath the trees. But most of all, I love the people who live in this city. My friends are changing Moscow with their presence. They have feelings; they have the opportunity to study, to see, to do something, and to change the city. Each and every one of them does small things to change the world around them and to make people happier.

Most people will tell you that Moscow is all about crazy speed, never-sleeping streets, and money. If that’s what you are after, sure – you will find it. But please come here and meet the people, talk to them, and make friends. You will discover your own Moscow and spot your own stars on the Kremlin.
