Almost all people are living constantly in such habitations outside of touristic zones in Moscow. So, if you will be here then you will like almost all in the capital of Russia.
Please, read the full text to my accommodation and look to all photos.
If you do not come to an area like here then it is similar to that you do not visit in Moscow.
If you need a visa for entering Russia then I can send an invitation for you can get the visa easier.
I can do the address registration for you also.
People called it often as a 'flat' or an 'apartment' in Russia. But they are wrong. Actually, it is like a small studio in the West but with many unwanted inside shame walls and interfering doors, which divide already the small studio to yet more tiny spaces: a living room, a kithen, a hall, a narrow pass-way and a bath with a shower, a toilet and a laundry together. The tightness impacts to a mentality of inhabitants. And it is more like a monk cell. By the way, such monkish cells are most often constant habitations for almost all people in Moscow and probably in whole Russia.
My monk cell haves windows and a balcony on a sunny south side and in a direction of the Moscow River, which is in about only 300 meters away as was measured by a direct line on a map. But the river is not visible from here due to the high river bank with a tree park.
My monk cell is simple furnished include a wide sofa for 1-2 people and yet a bed for 1 person inside.
I recommend to live in my monkish cell by group of few people for several days only because you will suffer here like almost all people in Moscow and via such short practice you will get more correct impression about Moscow with a less number of false promises and illusions. It will be like "sobering-up" for you, little stressful and you will have a strong wishing to escape from here so far.
Altrough, most people are in such conditions almost all their lifes in Moscow.
I suggest this habitation mostly for a temporary educational practice only but not for a relaxation nor for constant living.
I do not recommend really to be here for a long period of time because...
1) Everyday troubles here with a fuss will truncate and refuse your access to essential human necessities significantly.
You will not have a time and proper conditions even for think normally here and your common sence will become weaken and weaken.
2) The long time absence of access to a good life here accompanied with your weaken logic can really trigger the wishing in your soul to get a life satisfaction by the way remained available: by bad.
Additionally, many special things will increase such wishing purposely in Moscow.
3) Time will pass, your common sence will become corrupt and then it will be more understandable for your weaken mind to follow various bad ideas, which will be plenty given to you in Moscow, rather than independently thinking about a survival from here to a normal full fledge human life. In another words, you will lose human abilities partly and istead a survival from here you will hold here like an android following a bad program. You will fall in a temptation but you will unable to understand it. You will think wrongly that you are living here for your-self. But actually you will be here not for your-self but for those roguish persons who supplied people with masked bad ideas.
I will give you some common examples:
a) Instead pragmatic and sufficient style of life, instead thinking about a survival from here to a normal human life you will start to satisfy your-self by supporting various given ambitious, radical and even abstractive ideas following it by such actions. It will be like a revenge in your truncated mind for inability to access to a normal human life. For instance, you will satisfy your-self by such thing like repeat remembering about that many other people are in the same building like you in Moscow; about that Russia is a biggest country in the World and many such similarities.
You will try really to avoid thinking about that very many people, include you, are suffering here actually.
b) You will not dream about a comfortable private house in a good place with pleasant people around simple enjoing a good life as it is easy in love.
Instead you will get here a masked bad framework as it is given to almost all people in Moscow and this given bad framework will recognised wrongly by your weaken mind as normal, as good. This masked bad framework will NOT announce that you just need to be a human and live as a human but instead this masked bad framework will announce only that here is allegedly a feasible, high promising place and you need to proof that you are a normal human by taking an effort and even struggle here for archieve a set of allegedly normal human signs: an income, a car, an ambitiously designed monkish cell disquised as an apartment, an ambitious matrimonial ceremony, making children and etc. You will think wrongly that you are duty to fulfill the given framework as much as more. And as more you will attempt to follow here such given wrong ideas then more trouble will to leave it for you and you will be sticky here with a bad life like going down in a bog.
So, the next few examples are about how you becoming an android in Moscow will proof that you are a human within the given bad framework.
c) You will lose feelings. You will not understand what is bad and what is good. Your weaken mind will understand mostly what is representable by numbers. You will become addicted to numbers, you will brag of numbers and you will get satisfaction by counting. For instance, you will count your partners and children. You will not care about that you have sex only with androids here or about that your children will suffer and also become slavers like you.
d) You will target an income here but you will not understand that your life become badly and badly in real. Within the framework you will follow the given bad idea, which is wrong actually but can seems strait for the first time and deceive some people easy. This bad idea is that anyone need to get an income for continue his life and that any your income is good for your benefit. Thus, you will be unable to understand that your income (and even a profit) here contradicts often with your life benefit actually. You will care really about an income and about a career as a way to preserve and increase your income. Everything you will do for it now. And due your addiction to numbers you will understand your income and profit via money mostly because they are easy countable.
e) You will deeply forget about a love, you will hate people and you will hunt really for career and for profit by people only. Your hunt for a profit will be as a normal way to survive here in your twisted mind. You will not want to live with a good person in a love in a good place but all your relations with people will be only on the matter of profit and career. You will be ready to lie, to murder, to fake love easy or to conceive a child as the obligation for a target person for your CAREER. You will not understand that such way is actually contradicts with your life benefit very often.
Instead real people you will become addicted to artificial pictures, TV, animals...
f) Instead a benefit for your life you will care really about your impressive appearance for it be efficient for your income and career: a hairstyle, garments, a car, anything just only for conceal your real pervert poverty here and put a false impression of your allegedly normality, hapiness, dignity...
g) Instead of building your private house in a good place and care about it you will design ambitiously your tiny monkish cell in the hell for give a false impression of your worthy to others and even to you by your-self. And you yet will call your tight habitation falsely as a 'flat' or an 'apartment' disguising a monk cell.
Also instead a private house you will try to get a car as much as bigger BY ANY WAY. A big offroad shiny car 4×4 on an asphalt between ugly plain multi-monkish cell houses in Moscow will become your ultimate goal.
h) Instead a normal human food everyday and an usual human activity you will care about erzats ways: cosmetics, diets, excercises, tobacco, alcohol, games with counting or numbers...
i) Various bad ideas will be implemented in your mind here. And 2 of they are an envy and a life satisfaction by a sadism - for you do not dream about a good life for your-self and for others but for you get an ersatz hapiness by making a pain to people like you and triggering same feelings among they misleading their lifes too. For instance, almost all various mass-medias regularly propagate such wrong ideas here villaintly showing a people's life much better than it is in real and yet as a success and a correct way to a happiness by allegedly a clever right revenge. And many more...
And you will follow it due to wishing to fulfill the absence of normal human life here by anything else, due to an absence of real love in Moscow, due to your weaken mind, due to you will become nervous here, due to your addiction to TV, to an artificial life and etc.
In result you will do many things not in a love but in hating: you will even make children not in love here but in sadism attempts. And you will wish other people be like you or even horriblest and instead of warning about the impending danger from here you will lure more people to this hell.
And yet please pay attention to one significant change on your way: if before you start your life here being lured by such misleading promises as allegedly beautiful lovely girls, as an ambition and an easy countable material profit (money, cars and etc) then now long faced with the reality of the absence of good life here you will try to satisfy your-self by a sadism only really avoiding to think about the absence of real love here, even about small salaries, about that you are living in poverty by a short and pervert life here. You will become not able to think about it. You will agree with it.
Thus, slowely but surely you will become a monk psycho like very many in Moscow.
You can use my monk cell entirely. I will give you the cell's keys. I can teach you how to use all accessories. I will be glad to show you the area around.
Guests allowed. You can invite guests here and I will not protest. The price will not depends on it.
I just need to notice only, it is not the best place for entertaintments.
I'm available by phone 24/7. I can help you to get a russian cellphone.
I speak Russian as a native language and I speak English but not so well. I can answer to many your questions at a face to face meeting or by a video chat. But if you will ring me then please speak English slowly using simple words as possible. An English text or SMS by phone will be better.
I can bring you to my monkish cell helping you with a luggage.
Please, pay in attention, I'm not like a white haired careerist girl from Belarus in a touristic zone in Moscow. I will not provide entertainments, I will not feign normality, friendness, holy hospitality and etc, etc...
But I will try to do for you the best what I can. I will be very glad to answer to all your questions and I will be happy to provide free excursions for you in Moscow - however, I'm not a professional guide.
Moscow is a giant city. The accommodation is not in the city center, nor at the city edge but somewhere in the middle between the center and the city end. Altrough, it is far enough from so called 'touristic zones' and many things here are very different or even contradict with 'touristic zones'. It is only about 9 km from the historical city center (the Kremlin with the Red Square) but here was not significant changees for last 30 years. Mind you. Literally, here is like a jungle. So, you should not have false expectations.
1) The accommodation is not in a western style nor a traditional russian habitation. It is a typical Soviet habitation - a private own monk cell in a condominium remained owned by the state formally. It is much bigger and better than a room in an average hostel outside of a touristic zone in Moscow but it can seems tight, poor and even worse for a visitor from the West. Here are not a comfortable saloon and a bedroom, here are just a small living room with a balcony, a tiny kitchen, a tiny hall, a narrow pass-way and yet a bath with a shower, a water sink and a toilet together. All spaces are tight. The accommodation is like a monk cell actually. Moreover, it was and still is a most often kind of constant habitation in Moscow for the last century. If you will come here then you can see many similar old and new multi-monkish cell houses around with a group of people crammed per each monk cell.
2) I let my monk cell as it is. Here is not completely clean, it is little dirty somewhere. But do not worry, it is not stinky and here are not insects, even mosquitos are relatively rare here at a Summer due to it situated on the high river's bank.
Everything are simple and poor in my monkish cell. A shortage is often.
The furniture are poor. Some old furnitures are with scratches.
The poor cookware and glassware.
Linens are clean but some are old and with small holes or patches rarely.
3) My monk cell does not have a TV set, does not have a landline phone and even radio signals of cellular phone networks are weak here: if you will want to talk by a mobile phone in the monk cell then may you will need to go to the balcony for get more stable signal. Remember, it is Moscow, the capital of Russia, but it is just far outside of touristic zones and here was not significant changees for last 30 years - most people are still here like in the USSR.
4) Be prepared to a poor food assortment in a supermarket near. Probably you will suffer in a hunger little. You can buy a pure water, some food and other essentials in the supermarket but there is impossible to buy a fresh hot piece of bread even or somewhere near around! You can come here and check it by your-self.
5) Be prepared to unexpected adventures.
No, I do not have specially prepared entertainments but adventures can start with you as it usually happens with all other people here around. I will give you few examples:
a) Some things can become broken when you will use they and I can be not able to provide a replacement or to repair it fast. For instance, electricity failures and water failures are common place here. Sometimes drops of rusty water are coming from the ceiling due to an emergency condition of old trunk tubes remain owned by the state. It is little possible you will need to take urgent actions or to repair something by your-self for do not become a victim of emergency due to a state emergency service will come too late.
Generally speaking, many things inside and outside need to be not only renovated but must be fully changed.
In 1990ties there was a lot of serious reports in mass-medias in Russia about unhuman conditions in such multi-monkish cell houses, about even an emergency situation with they and the authorities loudly promises many times to remove all such multi-monk cells houses in the capital of Russia giving a new better habitation to people. But it is never happen. Now the criticism disappear in mass-medias and new similar multi-monkish cell houses was builded in big numbers outside of touristic zones in Moscow.
b) I'm an ordinary local cultural person, I was never convinced in a crime but the armed state police unit can come here without my call eventually at any time with a pretext of checking a passport and a notorious address permission (yet persists duty for locals and called 'propiska' in Russian from USSR time, it is a formal permission from the state police to live in the habitation which I already own for many years, it also allow me to be in this area around in a night time and ask service [without warranty to get it] in state fasilities in this district like a state library branch, an out-patients clinic and etc; but it was significantly lightened by the authorities for all new visitors only and replaced for they by a simple noticeable registration in few days since arrival).
c) But if imported criminals harass to someone (it sometimes happens here outdoor) then the police does nothing, people around do not help immidiately too but act following a quick examination of the situation on a matter of personal profit - for instance, if you will in a trouble and they decide you are a foreigner, who can be useful for their future career then they will try to acquainte with you providing some help.
Please, do not be too much afraid. Probably, you will be not even wounded. Just you should be cautious like most other people do it here. Believe me: it is even more safe area than the city center because criminal is more open here.
I think you have a reason to be in my monkish cell in 2 cases only:
a) if you want to be outside of touristic zones in Moscow then you will get it here a lot;
b) if you need an emergency accommodation then you will get a hot water here, you can wash yourself here, you can sleep here and you can little eat here.
And I can give you a special offer: if you will bring towels and clean linens with you for use they in the habitation then I can let you the entire accommodation for only 15€ per night. If you agree then ask me about the special offer via AirBnB interface.
The size of my pillows is 70x70sm.
Please, be cultural and clean after yourself as you can.
