Several months back we took a look at Russia’s other Kremlin, the Kremlin at Kazan, but thus far we haven’t spent any time admiring Russia’s most majestic Kremlin, the one found in Moscow. Our previous post about Moscow took a look at the city from a bird’s eye view, but let us now admire Moscow’s Jewel, the Kremlin. History of Kremlin The Kremlin’s history is a long and arduous one. The region has been populated from the second century BC. The point at which the Neglinnaya River flowed into the Moskva River was ideal for farming and pasture, and so settlers are said to have begun expansion from there....

A Photo Journey Through Georgia’s Beautiful ...

When most Americans think of Georgia, they tend to think of the state of Georgia and not the country of Georgia. More interesting, Georgian’s don’t think of their country as Georgia either, the country’s real name is Sakartvelo. There is much debate as to how the name Georgia came to be when referencing Sakartvelo, but the fact remains that to the rest of the world the region is known as Georgia. Lets take a quick look at how Georgia got its western name. One popular theory suggests that due to their high reverence of Saint George in the early medieval days, Europeans came to consider them Georgians. Another theory is the...

Scuba Diving in the White Sea

Several months back, we did a post about White Sea, specifically about the Beluga Whales of the White Sea. While the Beluga Whale can be considered one of the White Sea’s most interesting species, it is far from the only interesting one. The White Sea is filled to the rim with a wide variety of sea life, somewhat comparable to what one might find at the Great Barrier Reef. While there are a number of small town around the White Sea, there are only two major points of interest to tourists, both of which are visible on the map to the right. Belomorsk is the smaller of the two, with a population of roughly 12,000. It can be considered a...
