Park in Moscow, where the tale lives quietly

in travel •  last month 

Once upon a time, when there were no big cities, there were impenetrable forests and swamps, the whole world was shrouded in mystery. Mermaids and strange monsters lived in the rivers, mysterious animals and goblins wandered through the forest,and Mavka and fauns danced in the fields.

But over time, people became more and more, first there were small villages, then cities more, and now around is full of huge cities, where there is no spirit of mystery. Fairy tale gradually moved away from people, because no one believes in magic and magic. However, there are places in big cities where the mystery has not disappeared, but continues to live, despite everything.

One day, walking in one of the Moscow parks with a camera, I came across an echo of the past. There are no large crowds of people, but a lot of mysterious images, frozen as if in time. And if you look closely, it may seem as if the sculptures are alive.

From afar you may feel that all the characters of fairy tales made of wood, but this impression is deceptive. If you go to any sculpture, you can see - it's a stone. Perhaps gypsum or concrete. Vivid images as if frozen in the damn monolith.

There are strange beasts and dragons. Next to the big chess field, there are enormous figures of pawns and horses. In the bushes hid the hut of the Russian fairy tale.Perhaps one day an old woman comes here on a broomstick and hides inside from prying eyes.

Perhaps when night comes, all these sculptures come to life. They talk to each other, remembering the old days, sadly complaining to each other about the people who have become around too much in the last 1000 years.

There are many such parks in Moscow. They are not like one another, but there are also different interesting frozen images. It may happen that one day, when the fairy-tale creatures will be very crowded in the city, they will decide to come together and silently leave the cities into the depths of the forest, but while they are here, we have the opportunity to rejoice, looking at them and silently beg them that they forgive us and stay with us forever.

I don't know if I cry because in my country there are never such beautiful and creative things or to be happy because I know there are such things in the world thinking

The world is constantly changing. It may happen that in your parks, too, will settle a fabulous living creatures : )

I was about to point out that I saw two posts about moscow landscapes and thought it was weird, then realized both posts are from you.

Visiting places appears to be part of you. Looks like you were once a photographer.

Anyways, I love your story line. Looks like a fairy tale.

Thank you for reading : ) Yes, besides being an artist, I have written several books and stories published on several free literary sites. And I also take photos when I take a SLR camera with me on different trips.

Wow that's great. What inspires you to write so much?

I don't know. It's an inner urge. It's as if not you, but some inner voice makes you draw or write something, and then, when everything is ready, you look at the result, scratch your head and think - "Wow, did I do it myself?" : ))

halo dear @yurche, I am sure that at night, when no one can see, all these creatures come to life while we sleep and continue their existence, as in a parallel reality! I love those big chess :-)). probably only children, with their still magical soul, can talk and play with them, as you can usually see in the parks !! still very nice this park. do you live in fly? congratulations on the beautiful photos and your story :-))

Thank you for reading )) I think there are a lot of amazing things around us, but we forgot how to stop the rotation of this world and see a fairy tale...

that's right, the social duties of adult life wipe out the naivety of the child in us. only a few people keep it alive and they are usually criticized for this !!

It's good that there are fairy tales in the world that are not forbidden to read even by adults. : )

It's interesting to know that this is in Moscow. I would have expected many more people to be there. It's great that you get to relax also in such a huge city.

The park is very nice. I like those wooden statues. It is a perfect place to go with children too. When I was in Moscow I only visited Gorky Park and I loved it. It was so pretty and also kind of quiet.

Thank you for sharing and have a great day!

Thanks for reading! Usually in Moscow crowded only on weekdays. It's surprisingly quiet this weekend.
