Today we made our own plans while another part of the group went to the trade day at MAKS. We decided to visit the city, off course the Kremlin and Red Square. We also walked along the Moscow river and visited Gorky Park. Along the banks of the river place Buran (OK-TVA) can be found. This vehicle was used for structural tests and was in use as a cafe in Gorky Park. Nowadays its closed and its fate is unknown.
