hello and welcome to the south as we say goodbye to twenty millions of people here in moscow and indeed around the world the celebrating in style it's the largest events of the year in russia so join me and take a look at the history and the past let's face it it's a party and celebrate new year's eve in the russian capital. is. situated in the center of moscow. with a difference. to get the baby to. celebrate. literally stuck on december the that's. the end of the. ridiculous costumes the president's speech. made clear they hope to get in russia on the most peaceful in history to six hundred issues using the sims the fireworks the pond is
a moment to never forget. history and entertainment news with a grand historical occasion is second to none it's out of place just when you think on the plane what's wrong with this time oh city still right saving money bombing. our time. in the seventy's to come and go to read. pushing half. the party seems to be going up. people. but. even.
stills of people. and finally. to see such strict cities around the capital is yet to slog pursue my dreams of this point you can watch the gold ring series online if you don't come to get inspired to visit such beautiful britain towns filled with golden dreams and picturesque sights. that leads us to this week's it's. nice to meet you so tell me new year's eve in russia it's the main. yes it's a favorite holiday for the most depressions it's reminding them of their childhood
and. possibility to make up which will come true in the us how do you typically celebrate its new year's eve here in moscow. many families and many friends have different traditions and for my needs a family holiday when all the family gathers together singing songs watch t.v. all the same old t.v. shows that they watch over and over again and some people have seen these movies more than ten times and some people really get together i'll be big friends companies sometimes to me that it's a bit of an unexpected moment because sometimes it can be people who don't know that you want it to the house and they just how fun if it's somewhere outside they can go sledding down the hills and normally they would seem quite old kid they would drink lots of champagne they would have the traditional food such as the new year or tangerine or sprout so they hate all the quote and so but
also one tradition i don't think you up before the new year's eve you have to write don't you and burn it and put the ashes into the glass of champagne to hear it and once the cool chime you need reading and most of the russians believe the culture of it could be anywhere it could be very. interesting you know that's true but it's very important also if you go because russians believe that however you're spending new year's eve that's how you. and all the next year was the recently and happy new year thank you very much happy new year. moving to an exclusive venue this one depicts new russia through and through. there are hundreds of places in moscow where you can celebrate and see if this next venue is not just and your members but it's also the first place in the whole of russia that's nonsmoking so you can see in the new year without smelling cigarette smoke the sound effect today
name to remember the soviet space dog the name also translates to square in english i suppose that's why there are free notes. located on the trendy. complex it's the place to be seen and it's said to some of the best drinks. are we making tonight there is a wide range of hot drinks we have in belk as menu i were one of the most delightful and the most appropriate i would say drink for this festive period. but to draw ok and the ingredients is going to quiet a very interesting flavor but is. a rum we need about twenty grams of. unsalted butter. a bit of fly. be careful with the lime if you do it through my skin and will lose the flavor of
the butter that's why we're using the console to cook some vanilla syrup homemade. which you make kids with just the sugar. is the best choice for some juice. i want those workers off the bat to finish it off we just need to couple of japanese box cinnamon sticks put it in and hit it up . the aroma is very states. so put it right in this was. the cinnamon sticks inside just so the flavor remains and obviously god and they go but the drum thank you very much back and happy new year it's no more of them have been yeah. wow
