Kristina Makeeva, a photographer from Moscow has portrayed this in a collection of photographs and the result? Absolutely breathtaking scenes from fairyland.
"I would like to show you how beautiful our city is before the New Year. When people ask me what is the best time for a visit to Moscow, I always say that it's winter. In Moscow winters are cold, of course, but this time of the year is the most beautiful, in my opinion," says Kristina, to the website 'Bored Panda'.
"In our city there are a lot of lights that are often lit up all night, so those nights in Moscow, when it is snowing, the atmosphere is getting on really fabulous," she adds.
