National Unity Day
Today is a public holiday in Russia: The National Unity Day. This is the reason why we had a 'Black Saturday' on Novermber, 1st and then 3 days of rest (Nov,2-4). Frankly saying, this holiday doesn't make any sense to me but, no doubts, I enjoy extended week-end.
The photo presents a part of souvenirs fair at Revolution Square, it's located by the metro station, on the way to Kremlin and Red Square so tourists can't avoid passing through.
On the background you can see 'Moscow' Hotel in the last stage of construction.
