Puzzles Compiled by Ross Hunter
  1. Tourists’ Moscow

August is quieter in the city. So why not be a tourist, and catch up on all the famous sights? All these famous sites are within a camera lens of Red Square. Can you match the places to the odd angled photos? Have you seen them all yourself?

The Hotel Metropol
The Kazan Cathedral
The State Historical Museum
The Kremlin
Bolshoi Theatre

  1. All roads lead to ....

Each of these eight main streets radiates away from the Kremlin. But in which direction? Can you put them in order, and add their direction?

Tverskaya goes NW   Myasnitskaya
Ostozhenka   Pokrovka
Prospect Mira   Novy Arbat
Yakimanka   Solyanka/Marxistskaya

  1. Round and round in circles

These are Moscow’s ring roads. Put them in order, nearest the centre first:

  • 3rd Transportation Ring
  • MKAD
  • Boulevard Ring
  • Kremlin Ring
  • Garden Ring
  1. Mini Sudoku

Moscow foot-bridges
Top row: Frunzenskaya – Bolotnaya (over the canal) – Kievskaya
Bottom: Prechistenskaya (over the river, next to Christ the Saviour) - Luzhkov (the wedding bridge) – Tessinssky (on the Yauza)

Bridge walks
Neither Konigsberg nor Moscow can be walked in a single tour, as in each case there are more than two places with 1, 3 or 5 routes. With an odd number of routes, you must start or finish there, so there can be no more than two places like this. In both cities, building or removing any bridge, anywhere allows the walk to be done. Try it!

Age puzzles
The students are 16: 23x2 this year, 3x5 last year. I could be 40 (23x5 now, after 3x13); 56 (23x7, 5x11) or 88 (23x11, 3x29); but also 23 (now 13x23, earlier 2x11), 47 (13x47; 2x23), 59 (13x59, 2x29) or 83 (13x83, 2x41).
