Task 2

Your class is going to visit Moscow and stay there for a day. You and your friend are discussing what both of you would like to see in the capital. There are several options but you may choose only one of them: • the Kremlin • the Tretyakov Gallery • the Bolshoy Theatre • the All-Russia Exhibition Centre

’We are going to Moscow for a day and our teacher asks us to decide what we want to see in the capital. Any ideas?’

’Well, a day is not much for this wonderful city so it’s very difficult to choose something. And what would you like to see there?’

’First of all, I suppose we should visit the Kremlin, which is very impressive. Here you can admire ancient cathedrals and churches, the Bell Tower of Ivan the Great, the Faceted and the Armoury Palaces. You can also see the Tsar Bell and the Tsar Cannon, which are good examples of the early masters’ work. Besides, we can also visit Red Square and take pictures of St. Bazil’s Cathedral. With its nine beautifully painted cupolas, it is a real masterpiece of ancient Russian architecture. And if we are hungry, there are lots of cafes nearby.’

’Your idea is great! But unfortunately it won’t find any support in our class because many students have already been to the Kremlin. As for me, I’ve already been there three times and I have lots of beautiful photos. Besides, I’m sure that it’s difficult to get tickets to the Armoury Palace. Moreover, the Faceted Palace can only be entered on special tours. I’d rather visit some museum, for example, the Tretyakov Gallery. It contains the priceless collection of Russian Art. A friend of mine was there last month and he was delighted. I think everybody will like this idea, won’t they?’

T can’t agree with you. Not everyone in our class is fond of arts and they may find boring to go from one picture to another.’

’But we may arrange a guided tour of the gallery! It will be very interesting! Don’t you want to learn something new about Russian painting?’

’No, I don’t. I’m not keen on painting. Besides, the guides usually go into details, so our excursion may be long and tiring. Why don’t we go to the theatre? The performance usually lasts for about 2 or 3 hours so we’ll have enough time for it. I have always wanted to visit the Bolshoy Theatre, which is world-famous for its operas and ballets. If we are lucky, we’ll be able to see The Swan Lake, which has fantastic music and wonderful scenery. And the theatre itself is really beautiful.’

’You are kidding! The tickets to the Bolshoy Theatre are extremely expensive. I don’t think that our parents will be able to afford them. And to tell the truth, I don’t understand ballets and operas. Anyway, all performances are usually in the evening and we’ll have to leave Moscow before that time.’

’What do you suggest then?’

’What about visiting the All-Russia Exhibition Centre? It is situated in a beautiful park and has a lot of gorgeous fountains. The gilded Friendship of the Nations and the mosaic-encrusted Stone Flower fountains are most beautiful so you’ll be able to take lots of beautiful pictures there. Besides, the Exhibition Centre is a large cultural and commercial complex where different international exhibitions and fairs are held so we’ll be able to learn something new.’

’I know that the All-Russia Exhibition Centre is very large, so it will be very difficult for us to see everything. And I think we may be tired.’

’You are right. Its territory is really rather large but there is no need to walk much, since the area is served by mini «trains». Besides, if we are tired we can have a rest in the funfair and enjoy different roller coasters or get a fantastic view of the city from a 75-metre-high ferric wheel, which is the largest in Europe.’

’Great idea! I agree that the All-Russia Exhibition Centre is a wonderful place to spend free time and to have fun. I’m sure everyone will enjoy this plan. Do you agree with me?’

’Yes, this is the best solution for us.’
