About the Book
A place of innumerable, unforgettable sights. A bewildering hybrid of new opportunities and old ideas. A labyrinth of streets, squares and spires that offers beguiling hints of a past both Imperial and oppressive, glimpsed through the furious energy of a city in a constant state of reinvention. Moscow is all these and yet so much more.
Nige Burton is a freelance writer, novelist and travel journalist. His work has been featured in numerous national and local publications. A passionate photographer, he has travelled widely throughout the UK, Europe and Asia capturing locales as diverse as the windswept St Kilda archipelago, Chernobyl, Transylvania’s verdant woodlands, the vast plains of Siberia, and the thriving cityscapes of Budapest, Zurich, Prague, Cracow, Copenhagen, St Petersburg, Moscow, Ekaterinburg and Beijing to name but a few. He lives in the sleepy seaside town of his birth on England’s north west coast.
