Moscow: The Desperation of Winter

The title of this video, "Desperation of Moscow in Winter" is evocative of the evacuation of Napoleon's starved Grand Armee from the Russian city in the winter of 1812 and the stopping of Adolph Hitler's Wehrmacht just outside the gates of the city in the famously cold winter of 1941. Award winning contributor shot this amazing aerial tour of Moscow in the frigid winter of 2017-18. Shot with a DJI Inspire 2 drone carrying a Zenmuse X7 camera, it is nothing short of an aerial masterpiece.

The Moscow City


"Moscow City" is the informal name for the Moscow International Business Center, a newer commercial district of the Russian capital city known for its towering skyscrapers.  Contributor MichaelMsk77 used a DJI Mavic Pro drone to create this beautiful video of the modern district.  At about the :17 mark, you'll ride along for a climb up to the top of these behemoths.  Here are five of Europe's seven tallest buildings as of 2018, the group's tallest  being the 95 story, 374 meter (a bit over 1.2k ft.) Federation Tower.

Moscow State University from Above


University campus buildings are often beautiful but they seldom dominate the landscape with their height.  Not so the Main Building of Moscow State University, in the Russian capital city.  Its construction was directed by Joseph Stalin, who died the same year that the building was completed - 1953.  With a rooftop height of just over 180 meters (just under 600 ft.), it's the tallest educational building in the world.  Here it is via drone, compliments of contributor and drone pilot Teckatlipoka.

Ostankino TV Tower (4K 2160p)


The Ostankino TV Tower is situated a bit to the northeast of the core of Moscow, Russia's capital city.  The massive tower carries signals for virtually all of the TV and radio stations available in the Russian capital.  Standing 540 meters (just under 1.8k ft.) tall when it was completed in 1967, it was the tallest structure in the world for nearly a decade before being topped by the CN Tower in Toronto.  In this drone video by contributor Robert_Msk, you'll get a drone's eye view of this amazing structure.

Sokolniki is a northeastern district of Moscow, Russia.  The natural centerpiece of the district is Sokolniki Park, whose name (derived from "falcon") references the hunting birds which were bred here for hunting use by the Royal Family several centuries ago.  It's been designated a municipal park since the late 1800's.  In this drone video by Lego, you'll get a bird's eye view of the park as well as the surrounding district.  The video was shot in the winter months, when the great city was blanketed in snow.

Up and over the Kremlin


Moscow's Kremlin is actually a fortified city with a city.  It was the seat of Russia's Tsars until Peter the Great moved the capital to the new city of St. Petersburg on the Baltic Sea.  After the Bolshevik Revolution, the capital shifted back to Moscow, and the Kremlin reverted to its role as the home base for the country's leaders, a practice which survived the dissolution of the USSR.  Here is a short but informative drone video of the great Kremlin, compliments of contributor Eddysdrone.

Contributor Valius Video used a drone to create this bird's eye view of the New Jerusalem Monastery, which is not located anywhere near Israel.  Rather, it is in metropolitan Moscow, the great Russian capital city.  It was built in the 17th century on a site which was (vaguely) reminiscent of the "real" Jerusalem.  The monastery was heavily damaged by invading German troops in late 1941, marking very nearly the furthest advance made by Germany during that campaign before being driven back.

Covering around 465 hectares (1,150 acres) of forest, playgrounds, hiking and biking trails, and cross country skiing tracks, Meschersky Park in Moscow is a massive city park.  It's located southwest of the city center, just outside of the outer ring road.  In this drone video by AirVuz contributor and pilot nikybwd, you'll get some great aerial views of this vast, well-manicured green space, just as the leaves have started to change from a blanket of green to spots of yellow, brown, and orange.

Contributor and pilot Valius Video created this beautiful drone video of the largest Catholic Church in Russia.  The Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in this heavily Eastern Orthodox country was conceived and built during the last days of the Tsarist Empire.  It was closed in 1938 during the height of Stalin's persecution of all forms of organized religion, and re-opened as a church a few years after the Soviet Union dissolved in 1991.  It's one of three Roman Catholic churches in the Moscow area.

Ruins of "Grebnevo" manor


Prior to the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917, the city of Moscow was the home of many of Russia's greatest noble families.   Three of the best known families, the Galitzine, Trubetskoy, and Bibikov clans, also had country homes in the area of Grebnovo, within the Shchyolkovsky District just to the northwest of central Moscow.  In this drone video from Vizaero, you'll get a bird's eye view of one of these great manors, which was the site of several fires in recent decades and is currently in a ruined state.

Over the last 25 years, no European city has changed as much as Moscow.  Despite the dislocation caused by the collapse of the Soviet Union and the financial crisis which engulfed Russia in the late 1990's, the capital city has grown enormously and emerged as a leading international business center.  While much attention has been focused on the skyscrapers of its Moscow City district, many of the city's districts have been nearly as transformed.  In this drone video by MoscopterR, you'll get a bird's eye view of the "New Moscow".

On the banks of the Moskva River in western Russia lies one of the world's most important cities: Moscow. The capital of Russia is known for many famous buildings, including the Kremlin, Red Square, Lenin’s Mausoleum, St. Basil’s Cathedral and so much more. The bustling city is no less beautiful in the dead of winter; in fact one could argue the white backdrop of snow makes the city all the more spectacular.

While Moscow has long been one of the world's most important cities, it's only in recent years that it's developed a world-class skyline.  The epicenter of the transformation has been the Moscow International Business Center, a district whose development was conceived in the early 1990's shortly after the end of Communist rule.  Situated just east of one of the ring roads, the district is home to six of Europ'e eight tallest buildings as of 2019.  In this drone video, you can get a bird's eye view of this remarkable project.

As Moscow has emerged as a leading international business center, it has struggled to provide adequate housing for its population.  Perenially short of housing in the Soviet years, the problem has in many respects grown worse with the advent of capitalist Russia: it's the main reason why Moscow is now one of the world's most expensive cities.  In this video by MoscopterR, you'll get a bird's eye view at a giant new housing complex called Solntsevo on the outskirts of the great city, now Europe's largest.
