Childrens’ Puzzle Compiled by Ross Hunter

In Training

Like all great cities, Moscow grew with the railway. The fi rst line, to the then capital, St Petersburg, arrived in 1851, and the main termini form a circle roughly around the Garden Ring and the Brown Metro. Six of the nine main ‘Voksal’ are pictured here. Can you match them to their names? Can you name the other three?

Yaroslav Kievskaya Leningradsky Kazan Kurskaya Belorussky

Great Rivers

Most of the world’s great rivers flow through several countries. Which is the MAIN place to find each of these dozen? As usual, I have muddied the waters by shuffling them.

Countries: Australia Brazil China Venezuela France India Pakistan Germany England Russia Egypt Mozambique

Rivers: Nile Amazon Thames Yenisei Huang Ho Murray-Darling Orinoco Limpopo Rhone Rhine Indus Ganges

The wild side of Moscow

Last month, zebra were seen on Moscow’s streets, as part of a road safety event. There are lots of exotic creatures free range in Moscow. Can you spot their camouflage? I have mixed them up. Be more careful, some are dangerous!
