Imagine the center of Moscow, just a few steps away from the Kremlin, Red Square and the Bolshoi Theater. You're going down to Ploschad Revolyutsii, a masterpiece of Stalinist architecture featuring striking arched ceilings and 76 bronze sculptures of soldiers, farmers, athletes, writers, aviators, industrial workers, and schoolchildren.

The most popular is a frontier guard with a dog. There is a belief among Moscow students that if you rub the dog’s nose you will pass your exams. And if you touch the gun of the “revolutionary sailor” sculpture, the day will go well.

Let the journey begin. Enjoy!
