Prize Quiz! Another PASSPORT innovation

This month’s picture quiz has a prize: a week’s free fun on the English International School Summer Club, in July

Part 1. Things are looking up! The days are getting longer, the sky is brighter. The sap is rising, in the spirit, if not yet the trees. Here are a collection of the tops of famous Moscow buildings, seen from the street. Can you name them?

Part 2. Can you locate, name and explain these mystery photos.

One outdoor, one indoor, one old, one new.

But they are both close to each other.

Part 3.
Tie break

What is this? How old it it?

Where can you find it?


Good luck!
