This is one of the popular and very well known tourist destinations of Moscow. Originally a Cathedral, famous for exclusive interior design and unique architecture – the museum is worthy enough to visit for the visitors. The interior is a maze of galleries winding from chapel to chapel and level to level via narrow stairways and low arches. The walls are painted in floral and geometric patterns. If you are in Moscow, considering not visiting this place would definitely a big miss! Though, if you believe in your deity and being a proud Christian, it can be a good experience for you.

Amazing place and cathedral. It’s better do tourism in June or August to catch a good weather. Otherwise, you will feel so tired to walk around the place with the sun. It’s difficult to take a photo without people around you but you can go maybe early in the morning around 9 am for photos outside and in the afternoon when you finish to do tourism around the city, try to buy tickets to see the cathedral inside (it’s so beautiful). You can rent audio guides or maybe in the information point sometimes are local volunteers who can be your guides and it’s free.
I only saw it from outside. But for me it's the most beautiful cathedral I've ever seen. Loved the colours. Most see at Moscow
Although it's known to everyone as St. Basil's, this legendary building is officially called "The Cathedral of the Intercession of the Virgin by the Moat". The popular alternative refers to Basil the Blessed, a Muscovite 'holy fool' who was buried on the site (in the Trinity Cathedral that once stood here) a few years before the present building was erected.
The architecture of this church is unique and unrepeatable. The interior is a bit dark and small. In general, this is one of the most beautiful buildings in the history of civilization. Every time I admire this building as if I saw it for the first time The Red Square is a fantastic place..
The iconic St. Baisil's adorns Red Square and stands tall in one corner gracing every tourist photo of the capital. To my surprise, it isn't a single church but multiple churches. Also, do check out the significance of each distinctive dome.
