Moscow city is the capital and the largest city in Russia; not only known as the capital of the land of the birch, Moscow stands at the crossroads between the ancient the modern, between peaceful existence and the bustle of city life.

The wintertime in Moscow might be bitterly cold, but it’s also magical – especially if you see it through the eyes of professional photographer Kristina Makeeva. She was able to capture the city as if it were a winter wonderland. Her photo show locations such as the Red Square and the Kremlin, both blanketed in snow and bathed in colorful Christmas lights, with people milling about. A Christmas town straight from a fairytale!

Each winter photo captures the real Christmas spirit with bold personal style, finding a beautiful balance between the sharp lines, the constant motion of people and precipitation, and overexposed scenes. Below you will find the most beautiful images of Moscow during Christmas. Let’s enjoy and discover the magical beauty.
