Provincial Russian girl visits Moscow for the 1st time and decides go to America


Hello everybody! Recently I visited
Moscow for the first time. Barni!!! The capital is the face of the country but to learn more about this country you have to learn about life outside of the capital. My name is Natasha and I’m from Russian Far East from the city of
Khabarovsk. It’s a city likely at eight.. My dog also wants to participate
in this video. Khabarovsk is a city located 8,000 kilometers
far from Moscow Barni So Moscow has always been something
unachievable to me. In this video I will tell you a little about my journey and about how Moscow differs
from other Russian cities. And don’t be surprised
that I’m making this video sitting among potatoes in my ogorod just I didn’t find any other good place for making video. I went to Moscow because I needed to pass
an American visa interview And now it’s time for a really big news that I am going to the United States for one year. I became a finalist of a YEAR program, I will go to Minnesota, Twin Cities and my major is Chinese but also I will
study some other subjects, and I’m really happy about that because going to America has always been my dream.. So I want to announce that from now on
I will be making videos about my life and studying
in the United States, So stay tuned and also I have
a channel in Russian. And let’s go back to Moscow. Since the Year program is completely free, they paid for my round-trip tickets
from Khabarovsk to Moscow, It cost about $350 which is quite expensive
according to Russian measures, and it’s one of the reasons why Russian people
don’t find it affordable to travel through Russia. Flight to Moscow took me about
eight hours. It was my first flight and
I was really excited about that. I saw the location of the plane
and once again I made sure that Russia is really large. It was so epic. Hello guys now I’m in Moscow and today you and me have a beautiful opportunity
to see this beautiful city. I will spend here about three days, if you are interested in the city
and in my what Continue watching this video. And let’s go! The thing I like about the YEAR program
is that it gives me the opportunity to learn not only about the United States
but about Russia. One more example of it is that there in Moscow
I met other guys who will also go to the United States
due to this program. After our visas being approved we went
to the Red Square to make a surprise video
for the program coordinators. It was really funny and I really liked
communication with these guys. They all came from different parts of Russia and it’s so interesting to learn
something about their cities. And now I will tell you about things that I saw in Moscow and what surprised me in this city. I was really surprised to find out that Red
Square is smaller than I imagined. It turned out to be not square in shape but
long and narrow. As I saw it only on TV it always seemed to be
the center of the world, but after I visited it,
I realized that it’s a real place. The Red Square is not so fearful anymore, It’s true, safe and cozy,
because I’ve been there. Also I went to
Moscow International Business Center. It’s a complex of skyscrapers, and you know,
for Russia it’s a very unusual place That’s why many Russians who visit Moscow
usually take pictures with them. I also wanted to take a picture but not a usual one:
I made a photo with instant noodles. The noodles, mostly called ‘doshik’
because of a company ‘Doshirak’ is a famous
Russian ‘dish’. It’s become a meme,
a symbol of pure life, you know. And myself, eating doshik on the background
of luxury life is like an illustration of the
contrast that exists in Russia. The gap between the poor and the rich, between provinces and Moscow. I also visited Art Play. This is a whole quarter with interesting cafes and beautiful places for photo shootings. Especially I like this building and this graffiti in such an unusual place. Also I really liked Moscow underground,
or ‘metro’, as it’s called in Russian. It’s really comfortable and I enjoyed riding
the subway from one station to another. Then I went for a walk in the center of Moscow
and I really liked how the streets look. So guys now it’s the first time when
I’m travelling in Moscow by my own. What I want to note is that the construction of the roads and the construction of the street is completely different from the Far East.. I was surprised by the beautiful buildings
and such good roads. Now I’m sitting somewhere in the
district of Kitay-gorod. This district has a very unusual name because ‘Kitay’ is ‘China’ in Russian and ‘gorod’ is ‘town’. So we can say that Kitay-gorod
is Chinatown, and actually I was thinking that it’s called
like Chinatown in New York, but actually a word ‘kita’ –
it’s something from old Russian and it meant a bunch of woods, something like that. Right now I am standing near a
cafe that is called Chinatown, so they made this wordplay with
Kitay-gorod and Chinatown. The next day I visited Red Square again and there was a holiday – Day of Slavic Writing. There was a choir and I want to draw your attention to
this picture: The picture of the police guarding the religion
shows today’s Russia really well. So my last day in Moscow was over,
I went to the airport and set off to Khabarovsk. To conclude I want to say that I really
liked Moscow. I liked the underground, the politeness of people, and what is more, I saw that the urban environment
in Moscow is different. When you walk among such
beautiful buildings, along such comfortable streets, you feel that your life becomes easier, because you don’t think how to jump over this puddle. You don’t think how to survive but how to live. Unfortunately you will not see such
a picture in other Russian cities. The reason is that in Russia there is
a big centralization, so all money goes to Moscow and all laws
come from Moscow. And Russian regions depend on capital really much, that’s why we have such a sacred
attitude to Moscow. However I can’t completely agree with the
statement that ‘Moscow is not Russia’, because anyway it’s 11% of Russian population. Moscow is also Russia but just one of its types. *speaking doggy * And only now I understood why foreigners
who visit Moscow can like Russia so much. So, I hope this video was
interesting to you. Write in comments, have you ever been to Moscow
or to other Russian regions, And what do you think about such a big gap between the capital and the rest of the country? Thanks for watching, subscribe for more videos about
Russia and the United States, like, tap the bell, And have a nice day. Goodbye! Barni, say something to my subscribers. *he not protec and not attac he’s thinkin*
