This is a breathtaking trip over Moscow that show’s the city’s incredible beauty and rich heritage.

It is winter in Russia, a very cold day in Moscow especially at sunset. Even with this, the bird’s view of Moscow captured by a high flying drone is utterly impressive. From Kremlin, St. Basil’s Cathedral to the Red Square and other well-known landmarks in Moscow, every corner of the city is astonishingly cowered in snow and ice. The beautiful city is illuminated by the evening light, but the blanket snow covers it effectively making it even more beautiful.

These awe-inspiring aerial photographs were captured by the talented aerial photographer and exceptional drone operator, A_L_E_X in a short clip named; “Beautiful Moscow in Winter.” The way the photographer commissions the drone to capture the aerial view of Moscow goes a long way to show that winters in Russia are the stuff of legend.
