Photographer's Note

Embassy of Croatia is located at Korobeynikov* side-street, 16, Moscow. Two minutes' walk to the Moscow river, about 7 minutes' walk to the temple of Christ the Saviour, i.e. at the heart of Moscow. Quite near there's Cote d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast) embassy which I took for Irish embassy first)

I want to take another shot of this view but when it snows heavily. I'm working quite near here, just a few meters down the street.

* Коробейник [ko-ro-BEY-nik] means “ambulant merchant”. The side street was named after the landlords (some Korobeynikovs’ family) who owned the houses in the neighbourhood centuries ago. At the end of the 18th century the side-street was given the name of Ushakov (no, not the famous Russian admiral but a military, too) who took over the ownership. So there appeared the 1st Ushakov Side-Street, the 2nd Ushakov Side-Street and the 3rd Ushakov Side-Street. In 1922 the Soviet govt gave the side-street back its old name to eliminated street-names with numbers. Still, there are quite a lot of streets in Moscow with such names.
