St Basils Cathedral, Moscow Reviews

  • Do you wanna know a little about Russian religious and political history? This is a place to go. Not only it's marvelous to look at, but inside you will have the chance to see artifacts dating many past centuries that constitute the history of the place. It's well preserved for its age and I was treated very well by people inside. There are no guides, so just be free to walk around and read taking your time. It's hard to get lost inside, but be careful not to fall down large steps.

  • This was quite amazing place. Also personally, you should try to go inside. It costs 500 rubles but totally worth it to see inside. Finally, on the second floor, you could listen the traditional Russian song with great voice. I would definitely recommend this place to visit

  • It's the symbol of Russia, just in front of the kremlin's wall the cathedral is situated. If you are asking, the cathedral has an byzantine architectural design, that's why it has not usual cupolas. Its a 100% photogenic place, so you will have a long photo session there be ready. You, won't believe but inside is smaller than it seems. Obviously as every monument in Russia you must visit it in the first half of the day (if you want to enter), I recommend to visit twice (at night and along the day) also I recommend to visit in winter, I think, it looks better (more russian) because the snow and etc. Don't forget it is in the red square, so you should visit more things near of it.

  • World famous landmark of Russia. Cathedral is in the red square and next to the Kremlin palace. marvelous architecture inside and outside. This cathedral was built almost 500 years ago. As there was a lot of fires, it's been reconstructed several times. So you can see different periods of Russian history and architecture in one cathedral. This place is stand unique and gorgeous! Place closes at 5pm. Ticket booth closes much earlier

  • One of the most famous sites in the world. As with all sites it is smaller in real life than photos show. A wonderful and picturesque place to visit on a Winter's evening.
