Travelling is one of the ways of discovering new countries. What attracts tourists to Russia? What would you show your foreign friends in your home town?
1. Millions of people all over the world are fond of travelling. 2. It's always interesting to discover new things, different ways of life, to meet different people. 3. While travelling we can see and learn a lot of things that we can never see and learn staying at home and watching TV or reading books. 4. People say: It's better to see once, than to hear 100 times. 5. The best way to understand people is to meet them in their own homes, the best way to learn different countries is to travel. 6. Russia has always attracted foreign touristrs because it has a very interesting culture and history, and there are very many places of interest. 7. There is a lot to see in a Russia, but first of all foreign tourists want to visit the capital of our country. 8. If my foreign friends came to Moscow, first of all I would show them the main historical place - Red Square. 9. It is the heart of Moscow. 10. All important ceremonies and parades are held there. 11. On Red Square there are many interesting buildings, but the most beautiful is St. Basil's Cathedral, built in the 16-th century. 12. I think it will be interesting for my friends to visit Lenin Mausoleum or GUM - the largest department store in Russia and certainly, they should see our Kremlin. 13. The Kremlin with its beautiful cathedrals attaches to Red Square. 14. The word "Kremlin" means "a fortress". The Kremlin with its towers was built in the 15-th century. 15. The most famous tower of the Kremlin is the Spasskaya tower with the Kremlin clock(chimes). It is a symbol of Russia 16. On the territory of the Kremlin my friends can see the Tsar- Cannon and Tsar- Bell- the biggest canon and bell in the world. 17. If my foreign friends are fond of art, I will recommend them to visit the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts and The Tretiakov Gallery, which are famous all over the world. 18. If the weather is fine we 'll go to the All-Russia Exhibition Center or to the parks of Sokolniki, Izmailovo or Kolomenskoe . 19. In the evening the best way to spend time is to visit the Bolshoi Theater, which is well-known all over the world, or the circus . 20. Of course, there are a lot of cities and towns in Russia which are all worth visiting, for example, St. Petersburg, Volgograd, Novgorod, Suzdal. 21. But I think, Moscow is the most beautiful city and everybody will be happy to visit it and to enjoy it's wonderful sights.
