Casta Diva - A Resturant for Special Days

Moscow is very rich in restaurants of differrent kitchens and cultures. You can find a large varity from cheap ordinary fast foods to very luxury, good serviced restaurants. Also on the web you can find sites giving ratings, telling about the restaurants. But any way its always better to try a place which your friends or someone you know have tried and offered you. So now I would offer such good and nice restaurant in Moscow : Casta Diva.

In some special days, like birthday, day of Valentine etc. we search for a special restaurant. I would offer you the resturant Casta Diva, which is located in the center, close to Tverskaya street near Puskin statue. It is an Italian resurant mainly but also has some other kinds of food as wll. It is a few houses away from the famous Pushkin Kafe. It has a very special interial design, like a tsars palace, all walls and ceiling with special paintings, tables and chairs with special design. Waiters and waitresses wear special old times dresses and serves very gently. Prices compared to same level resturants very reasonable and not expensive. For two person drinking a glass of wine, nice foods you can have a bill like 4000-5000 RUB (of course not choosing the most expensive food). Even having less it woull be 2000-3000 RUB.

In some days of the week, live classical music is played with a group of 4-5 people. That makes the resturant also very special. I liked this resturant and felt myself in a special place. So I would offer you to try this restaurant in your special day.

Kuskovo Park

One of the nice parks located at south-east of Moscow, not very far from the center is Kuskova Park. This place was one of the resting palaces of the Ekatarina the Great(II. Ekatarina). Having buildings, exhibition rooms, lake and green areas and walk ways a nice park to see. It is also one of the favorite places of people getting married to take photgraphs, to make a small walk and celebration. On weekends, specially on nice weathers you can see many limuzines near the enterance of the park.

In the rating of Moscow Parks, I think it is a little over the average. It is nice to see one time, but not much activities or interesting places to see, no sitting places in the park. Walking roads are a little bit dusty as well.
