"We have five weeks to explore Moscow - Gorky park, all the sights. Then other host cities - Sochi, Kazan, and if I have some time left, I would visit Vladivostok, see Baikal, Ekaterinburg," Marc said revealing his plans.Perhaps most surprisingly of all, there’s a Mrs. Reinmann!“My wife knew about my passion from the day one. We had to dismantle half of this collection in my old apartment and install it here, which took us four weeks of work. My children like it,” Marc said.
