    Lost Library in the Kremlin?

    I would not be surprised. After Ivan the Terrible, Russia was divided and chaos broke. Later the Soviets probably tried to hide it. With Russia more free, I expect the Russians may want do more work on it. 'key' to Tsar's secret library' Oh, well. It cannot be truth The true story sounds so: His library was in the Kremlin until distemper in 17 AD. Then all books were looted and a part of them is completely missing but some of them were collected in the State Historical Museum in Moscow and i saw a few books from this library. The real library had about 800 books. They were brought from Byzantine by Sophia Paleolog (wife of Ivan III and grandmother of Ivan the Terrible). It was collection of old ancient (Greek, Roman and Byzantine) authors. I pereodically read "Ivan The Terrible's library was found" or "we know where is this library" but all talks about it are groundless only.

    Oslo, Norway

    I was in Oslo during some days lately. I was glad because it was not a business trip and I had a lot of time to see museums and the city and simply work around the centre of Oslo. The weather was not good though and all pictures look misty. I was wondered that Oslo is the city of sculptures, I like this genre of art and they took my attention as always, lol. I forgot about fiords and nature for that moment and spent my time on Oslo streets and in the park of sculptures by Gustav Vigeland. I saw a lot of funny sculptures everywhere though. Oh, ok, I simply was impressed by them. I saw famous Akershus Castle from window of my hotel

    Yes, I think it's so and i was really wondered to read other theory about Colchis location. I found the mouth of Rioni with coastline in Google Earth. It looks like navigable waterway and it could be so a few thousands years ago too.

    Your Favourite Roman City

    I voted for Roma. I guess it was a bit chaotic but a wonderful town. Not without reason all towns were compared with Roma. I have link about Ravenna's mosaic so you can see it mosaics

    unknown church

    Yeah, you are right. It was so. I know all such churches were rebuilded in Moscow but the provinces still look so.

    The church of Christ the Saviour

    This church is new one. Old Church of Christ the Saviour was destroyed in Stalin's times and it was a swimming-pool in this place during long time. This church coincides the old church fully.

    What's The Difference?

    I would like to show the difference only between Moscow and the provinces. I guess it may be in others countries too, but I didn't notice it anywhere else. I was sad something when observed those views, when old churches are ruined with time.
