New York, NY, USA
Just a block and a half from Loews Regency sits New York's landscaped wonder and one of the greatest urban parks in the world, Central Park. Stretching between 59th and 110th Streets and Fifth and Eighth Avenues, the park covers a total of 843...

New York, NY 10004, USA
One of New York's most iconic landmarks is also one of America's: the Statue of Liberty, standing in the middle of New York's harbor as it has since 1886. The statue was famously a gift from France, built to a design by sculptor...

FDR Drive, New York, NY 10009, USA
Work days in the 'concrete jungle' are hectic. Long hours are spent indoors, sitting at desks. It's easy to forget that we live on an island. The East River Walk, beginning at 34th street and the FDR, is where I go to get away from the hustle and...

Chornobyl, Kyivs'ka oblast, Ukraine
Last summer I took a trip to Kiev, Ukraine. We went to help run summer camps for children just outside of Chernobyl that have nothing. They live in villages that are declared safe to live in yet the government doesn't allow them to sell any of the...

If you went into the Odessa Catacombs Museum in 1989 and today, you would see and hear the same thing. Nothing is factually wrong, but this museum-within-a-museum only covers the handful of years in which this intricate tunnel network was used by...

Volodymyrska St, 24, Kyiv, Ukraine, 01001
At the Bell Tower of St Sophia's Cathedral, I could see St Michael's Golden-Domed Monastery on the other side. With glittering golden domes as far as the eyes can see, both the cathedral and monastery dominated the view in this Podil neighborhood...

Odesa, Odessa Oblast, Ukraine, 65000
Designed by Swiss-Italian architect Francesco Boffo as a grand entryway to the city, this legendary staircase once led directly to the sea. The stairs were the site of a 1905 battle between mutinous sailors and forces loyal to Czar Nicholas II;...

Uspenskaya 24, Odesa, Odessa Oblast, Ukraine, 65000
Built in 1895, this elaborate synagogue was seized by the Communists in 1930 and severely damaged during World War II. In 1991 it was returned to the local Jewish community. Members of the Chabad-Lubavitch movement renovated the structure in 1996,...

Triokhsviatytelska St, 8, Kyiv, Ukraine, 02000
I spent some time in Kyiv (Kiev), the lovely capital of Ukraine. This is the St. Michael's Monastery, named for and dedicated to the Archangel Michael. It was built between 1108 and 1113. Around 1934, Soviet authorities declared the monastery as...

Gubinskiy Rayon, Yakutsk, Sakha Republic, Russia
Are We There Yet? During a recent flight from Chicago to Hong Kong we passed directly over the North Pole. I woke up to find this beautiful view of the sunrise on the snow-covered mountains somewhere in Siberia.

A beautiful reflection of the church!

Griboyedov channel embankment, 2Б, Sankt-Peterburg, Russia, 191186
Late summer is the time to explore the 42 islands that make up St. Petersburg. Daylight stretches past 11 p.m., and a burgeoning arts and nightlife scene keeps locals on their toes well into the bright nights. On July 31, the party hits the port...

Red Square, Moskva, Russia, 109012
When visiting Moscow, one has to go to Red Square and the place that most stands out from a distance is St. Basil's Cathedral.

Palace Square, 2, Sankt-Peterburg, Russia, 190000
We visited the Hermitage Museum on Monday (the day it's closed to the public) and were able to witness art students painting some of the museum's most famous works. If you go, definitely try to arrange a private tour. On a typical day, 10,000...

Theatre Square, 1, Moskva, Russia, 125009
An unforgetable evening at one of the premier ballet houses in the world. If you are into ballet and art in general this is a must while in Moscow.

Siberian Federal District, Russia
Traveling across Russia solo in 2009 I took the Trans-Siberian railway--riding the same rails taken by exiled Russians for years--from Vladivostok to Lake Baikal. I hadn't spoken English for weeks, and it was blisteringly hot in the 3rd class...

Moscow, Russia, 103073
The Kremlin, an old Moscow standby, is an old, old fortress. Within it's walls, I was surprised to find among its communist, star-studded, structures, the old monastery and churches where the Orthodoxy and tsars walked. Sunlight lit up these...

Lake Baikal, Russia
Lake Baikal, the deepest freshwater lake in the world, is one of the most beautiful places I've been and my perspective changed as I stood alone on its shore--a self-sustaining and unique ecosystem that has its own type of seal and even shrimp. It...

Red Square, Moskva, Russia, 109012
On Red Square, you can see the black pyramid with the word: ЛЕНИН . This is Lenin’s mausoleum, and simply for the experience, you can go check out his preserved body in a glass case inside the pyramid. Per legend, Lenin’s body didn’t begin to...

ул. Образцова, 11, стр.1, лит. А, Moskva, Russia, 127055
This is one of the most-recommended museums in Moscow. It opened in 2012 and is the most technologically advanced and modern museum I have ever been to. There is a 4D movie about the creation story and every exhibition feels somewhat like a theme...

Palace Embankment, 32, Sankt-Peterburg, Russia, 190000
Built in the mid-18th century by Peter the Great's daughter Empress Elizabeth, the Winter Palace was the principal residence of Russia's czars. It has also been the home of the Hermitage collection since 1764. From an initial purchase by Catherine...
