Different Moscow: Walking around good and bad capital of Russia

Moscow, one of the most popular Russian places for tourists. This is a huge different city where you could find almost everything (like everywhere in big cities, I presume), but some certain things are tend to be only in Russia and nowhere else.

Okay, let's just take a trip around the capital and see bad and good parts of it.
