    On a first visit to GFs home & family never sleep on site. Stay in a hotel nearby.

    You never know when you might need to be alone and think ''what the hell am I doing here''

    ....and if her dad and brothers think you're a wanker, you can get out of their way.

    Why is there a grand neo-classical facade emblazoned with Respublika Belarus in Moscow? It looks a bit grand to to be the Belarus embassy.

    Have you gone travelling round the eastern European region spunter?

    Went here with mom in 1986

    https://www.bolshoi.ru/en/

    I remember curtains were decorated with hammer and sickle.

    Mom decided to buy a Bolshoi Theatre book with a silk cover also decorated with same.

    I wonder it it's worth million bucks on eBay.

    At the time mom was doing her post graduate and they set her up in a dorm with many international students. They were people from all over the world and I remember the cafeteria was pretty epic. It was a huge commie style building and at night there was a lot of loud partying. My mom was told by some guy from Algeria that every single room was spied on with listening devices. He later showed me a "loud speaker" installed on the wall which he claimed was a recording device.

    You want a dog that has been into space and looks like an elephant?

    Think that might be a bit too 'niche'.

    Gants Hill tube station in Essex was based on the Moscow metro




    The station, like the other two new stations on the branch, was designed by architect Charles Holden in the 1930s. During the 1930s the London Passenger Transport Board had provided advice on the construction of the Moscow Metro and an internal report in 1935 by the Underground's engineers on the Russian capital's system led to the decision to construct a station in London to a similar design.

    My mate saw Depeche Mode at the Olympic stadium couple of months ago

    In the 80s them and The Cure often ventured beyond the iron curtain, not many acts did back then. As a result both have a massive following in eastern Europe.



    Recently aging boxer Roy Jones Junior was granted Russian citizenship so he could box in Moscow. There was no other way for him to get fights as he was refused a licence in most countries for health reasons. He was knocked out badly by Welshman Enzo Maccrinelli in a cruiserweight fight

    Wrong siege chitty!

    Although the WWII siege of St. Petersburg was in many ways worse than more famous one at Stalingrad since it lasted for 3 Russian winters instead of just 1.

    Holy cow. Worse than Stalingrad ??

    I'll have to read these tomorrow when I have time.

    isn't St Petersburg the old name for Stalingrad before it was renamed St Peterburg again when the USSR fell ?

    didn't you guys had WW2 history in school ?

    ^St Petersburg was formerly Leningrad.

    Stalingrad is now Volgograd.

    It is covered in quite a bit of detail in the epic 1970s British TV series The World at War, which everyone should watch once in their lives.

    ^ Not to distract from the thread, but endorse Looper's comments.

    26 of the most informative episodes you will ever encounter, with Laurence Olivier's narration guiding you through.

    First watched that sitting on my dad's knee around the late 80's on BBC2. And again in my teens, not sitting on my dad's knee. Think I downloaded it out here a few years ago. Brilliant show, British historical documentaries are damned hard to beat.


    Would be brilliant to see a modern version made, as with Cosmos.
