St Basils Cathedral - Review

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.

St Basils Cathedral, Moscow Reviews

  • St. Basil's Cathedral is must see highlight of any trip to Moscow. Make sure you take the time to explore and enjoy all it has to offer. I am pleased I had purchased Skip the Line Tickets to avoid the lengthy queues. I visited twice during my 5 days in Moscow firstly on my own and then with our tour guide who was very knowledgable and gave a different insight into the history of the incredibly beautiful piece of architecture.

  • This was quite a unique cathedral. Not similar to any other place in the world ( although Church of the Savior on Blood in St Petersburg could be an exception). No photo or video can show the beauty of it. You must go ant visit. However, the interior is not as gorgeous as exterior of the building.

  • Stunning Church..! Incredible angles and colors..! Was wonderful be there . I recommended travel to Moscow. Beautiful City with friendly people..!

  • Cathedral - Historically Interesting and Architecturally Beautiful. It contains multiple churches inside (within each tower), and the building is designed in the shape of an 8 point cross as a symbol of Orthodox Christianity. This is definitely the most recommended place for a photo that symbolizes a trip to Russia.

  • One of the most famous cathedrals in the world and really beautiful together with the red square it makes a perfect place for a walk. Definitely a must go in your travel bucket list.
