There are many buildings in Moscow that retain their old-fashioned look. Among them, the high-class grocery store called "Elyseeevsky", which has a history of 120 years, is probably famous.
"Elisséeffsky" is said to be the most beautiful grocery store in the world and is always listed in Russian guidebooks. The interior of the store has a neo-Baroque style and retains the history and atmosphere of the early 20th century.
Although it is a traditional store, it has evolved as a modern supermarket. It has been run by a supermarket company that runs "Rue Pulsar" since 2005, but very disappointing news was announced earlier this month. "Elisséeffsky" will close on April 11th this year because the ownership dispute with the city of Moscow cannot be resolved.
The Moscow government is trying to preserve it as a cultural property, but for now the future of the store is unknown.

Regarding circus admission.

For smooth admission, it is recommended that you arrive at least 30 minutes before the start of the performance.
At the entrance, measure the temperature (37.2 degrees or less is a guide), wear a mask and gloves.
It is required to maintain a social distance, such as not removing the mask during the performance tour and not moving the seat without permission.

Currently, elementary, junior high and high schools have entered the spring break period.
There were days when the temperature exceeded -20 degrees even in March this year,
At this point, the positive temperature finally continued, and I began to feel the sunny spring sunshine.

However, for parents, it would be great to have as many places as possible for their children to enjoy.

Some people take antibody tests not only for PCR tests but also for vaccination guidelines.

Normally, you apply in advance from the government app, but you can also apply from the vaccine center located in the fashion building in the center of the city.
