Trip Moments

Blue Tulip   
When I entered it was not necessary to buy an admission ticket. The entrance to Novodevichy Cemetery was quite unremarkable, the quiet outdoor space featuring springtime was in full bloom. The quietude and the smell of flowers was quite a surprise. It was like opening up a Russian history book, since this palace of art contains 26,000 significant individuals from all levels who contributed deeply to the historical development of Russia, who now lie in eternal rest. They are the pride of Russia, and include politicians, authors, artists, scientists, famous physicians, merchants, and heroic sons and daughters. Each person, whether great or small, each has a statue that wordlessly explains their work and contributions, describing the most beautiful aspects of their lives to visitors. Even though I don’t read Russian, through this unique form of funerary art, I was able to broadly guess at the faded war glories of Tsarist Russia along with many bygone events of great oppression. The beauty, sadness, and quiet of the cemetery made me understand the phrase “Death is just as sacred as life,” since this place is not a symbol of the end of life but rather is spiritual home where the soul is purified, and a total transformation occurs. In using their art to morn an individual, the artists have marvelously added to life; you will praise tongue in cheek the Russian statue designers, who used artistic techniques according to the intentions of the deceased and combined that person’s identity, personality, and monument to make an original and ingenuous fusion. It can absolutely be said that this is one of the great 3 famous European cemeteries, along with the Central Cemetery of Vienna (Wiener Zentralfriedhof) and the Père Lachaise Cemetery of Paris.

Red Square is located in the center of Moscow, which is the capital of Russia. On the banks of the Moscow River, it is the oldest square in the city, and is a witness to many important historical events. During important Russian holidays it is a place for mass gatherings, large celebrations, and military parades. It is an famous tourist place of interest as well. Nothing can surpass Red Square as the most famous square in Moscow. Due to the fact that the main roads of Moscow all begin at Red Square and extend to all parts, Red Square is seen as the central plaza of Moscow. The original name of Red Square was “krasnyi” which means “market.” The predecessor of this was the late 15th Century area for “Commerce and Industry Area Outside the City” created by Ivan III. In 1517 there was a large fire in the square, and thereafter for a period of time it was called the “Fire Square.” In 1662 the name was changed to “Red Square” meaning “the Beautiful Square.” The surface area of Red Square is 91,000 sq. m., in the shape of a rectangle oriented north to south, with the eastern and western sides being narrower, with an approximate length of 695 meters and width of 130 meters. After the 17th century, this square became the business center of Moscow, and an important site where the Tsar’s important governmental edicts were publicly read and where returning victorious troops were inspected. After the victory of the October revolution in 1917, Moscow became the capital of Russia, and Red Square became the site where national large-scale ceremonies, assemblies, and military parades were held.
