Moscow (CNN) – You can’t visit Moscow without visiting Gorky Park. It’s one of Europe’s biggest public spaces, and through the Martin Cruz Smith novel and 1983 film, became an international symbol of the paranoia and intrigue of the Soviet Union.
It was built in 1928 as an embodiment of the Soviet ideals of public health and public space, but gradually that ideology was forgotten, and the park fell into disrepair. Now though, that’s all changing.
Brussels (CNN) – Here in Brussels Europe's heads of government talked their way through lunches, dinners and various press conferences at the weekend as they moved closer to finalizing a 'grand plan' to end the eurozone's sovereign debt crisis.
