I was the first American to tour Vladimir Central Prison - located in The Golden Ring town by that name about 60 miles outside Moscow. It was fascinating to see paintings created by the prisoners lining the hallways and in the museum I saw many books on exhibit that were written by authors once imprisoned here. Vladimir Central is still a working prison.

Had an official city tour of the city which covered all the famous landmarks and had a few pitstops for pictures. Got a first glimpse of the famous Red Square. After the tour got down at GUM - the biggest shopping mall of Russia. Went into the St. Basil's Cathedral to get an insight into the history of the beautiful landmark. Visited the Vodka Musuem which has exclusive architecture and a delightful flea market alongside.
