Oh, how beautiful Salisbury Cathedral at this time of the year! Isn’t it worth that to fly to Salisbury all the way from Moscow? Rather buy tickets to London and from there only half an hour by train: https://t.co/2kwrc3cfFE pic.twitter.com/vY8HT49xJW

We planned to visit only Salisbury one day, but on 3 March there was all this snow. We got soaked and came back. But on March 4 in London “melted away” and we couldn’t imagine how to change Salisbury during the work of Sergei Sobyanin, it is now a comfortable European city.
