I saw it today in the newspaper under international column, MOSCOW-world’s most horrible city for tourists.its a survey which was conducted by the Trip Advisor website.i am not surprised but i do not want to blame anyone for this.
But blame who ? the city itself or its people or its geographical location.
City is not city without its people who live there. people form the culture , society , opinion , judgment and everything about the city.i knew it already as i have visited Moscow airport myself twice and the kind of reception i got at the airport was not rewarding.but its sad to see a city with more than 800 years of history been tagged as the worst city for tourists. i would like to visit Moscow one day and want to see it for myself though i know that i will form an opinion about the city with the kind of experience i will get from there.
I have read and seen enough about Moscow in the blogs , journals , internet and movies. which is good enough to form an opinion but i still stay with personal experience. lets hope things will change for Moscow but if the city really has to change and to become the world’s most friendly city it has to begin now and buildings,structures won’t do it ,its the people who can bring this change.
