In, Mockba for a few weeks. Any suggestions for what to see. Went to Great Patriotic war museum yesterday. Amazing place. Not too busy for Monday. We will be unbusy next few days so time to investigate interesting locations. 

If few weeks hope to visit Aurora and Kutuzov. Hope to go to Gadzhiyevo, Not know if military let us there. though.

@Maggie_Saito

How about these?

https://russiathenandnow.wordpress.com/2015/12/15/impressions-of-russia-mockba/

The Red Square

Of course, we had to visit the Red Square! It´s the main city square of Moscow and surrounded by several extremely important buildings:

the Kremlin: where the government resides – in the Kremlin, there are nice gardens and many other catherdrals as well as other official buildings of course. At the Kremlin wall, there´s also the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier that is dedicated to all Soviet soldiers who lost their lives during World War II.

Lenin´s Mausoleum: where Vladimir Lenin´s embalmed body is showcased – I went inside and will definitely never get that picture out of my mind! Understandably, there were no photos allowed, so if you´re interested, you will have to personally pay Lenin a visit as well!

St. Basil´s Cathedral: similar style to St. Petersburg´s Church of the Saviour in Spilled Blood, although I would argue that it´s not as beautiful from the inside

Kazan´s Cathedral: the Orthodox Church was restored after Josef Stalin had ordered its destruction in 1936

State Historical Museum: contains displays of Russian history from many eras

GUM Department Store: a famous, luxurious shopping centre with amazing architecture – it used to be a state department store, but was privatised after the dissolution of the Soviet Union

The Fallen Monument Park

The park was established in 1992 and contains hundreds of sculptures – they were removed from their pedestals during the collapse of the Soviet Union and are therefore referred to as “fallen”. Later on, sculptures in remembrance of the victims of communism were added to the park´s display. Nowadays, also new, modern sculptures have been added and the park has become a great attraction!

Guided tour of the B-396 Soviet submarine for 400R (only in Russian).
There is competition for the limited number of tickets on the weekends, so make sure to get there early. On the plus side, the small tour groups and spacious interior (for a diesel submarine!) makes for a far less crowded experience than is typical on submarine tours

@Maggie_Saito Mr. Sovereign Dawg (would make you King correct?)

Sovereign does mean king. In America however, the Sovereignty belongs to the people. So in a sense we are all Kings. The People are above the Government. When the King of England signed over America he signed it to all of the people making us all Kings, with the thought that if we were all kings that there would be nothing but chaos. Our founding fathers were very intelligent men and made our Constitution which grants rights to all of us Kings and formed our Government (courts) which is not above the people but allows for the separate kings (each person) to file grievances against one another. It also formed the Legislative branch (Congress and Senate the lawmakers) and the Executive branch (The President). Again both of those are not above the People either. So In America the People are Sovereign (The top Dawgs so to speak) and are Kings even over the President and out rank him. When I say SovereignDawg that's the Sovereignty that I am talking about. There are actually two separate united States. There is the united States of America (The people and the Country) and the there is the US (which is the corporate US Government) To be Sovereign in America you have to be an American citizen and not be a US citizen. If you are a US citizen it means that you are the chattel (property) of the US corporation. It's kind of complicated but I have studied this for quite a long time. That kind of explains the "Sovereign" that I am denoting by my use of the term. If I say more this could be termed as a political post, so I will end it here and call it a history lesson. I am sure if you are interested in this subject that you can find out a lot about it from Arizona University.

I am interested very much though what is Dawg? At U of A., I have taken no civic courses. Those I took at Kyoto. My mother was half Japenese half American Jew. Not know if He was US citizen or United States of America citizen. I have no understanding of politics though in U of A no one I know cares for the President. I will go to Library of Congress this next summer. Have training in Washington DC next August.for work. Do not understand comment about Sovereign though. It seems illogical for everyone to be Sovereign (that difficult word to spell) lol. You are fine gentleman sir thank you for your time and graciousness. I learn much in these forums and you are major part of that. I know you should never critique your betters, so forgive me you are a very caring man.

Dawg is just a slang term for Dog. I use it that way because I feel that Dawg, is more like a Blue Tick Hound (A loyal fiend and a good hunter but a little lazy or laid back. Dog to me is more fierce like a German Shepard or Rottweiler (Still loyal but more aggressive and high strung or anxious) So Sovereign (King, Monarch, Alpha) and Dawg (Dog, Canine, just a more relaxed one). So SovereignDawg is kind of a reference to the Top Dog or Alpha Dog.

Understand now. Many cultures to refer to someone as Dog is not conducive to friendship. Why I asked thought maybe depression problem also. Hoped I was incorrect happy to see I was.
