  • Wow...such a beautiful place with so much history. You can already spent quite a while just standing in front of it and looking at the architecture. Then inside you will be amazed about the art, history, wealth. However, you have to be careful with the opening times since it is closing quite early. It is an interesting place also for people that are not very religious. On the back of the cathedral you will have a nice view over Moscow. The icon of Moscow, it’s a must to do, I think it is worth paying and going inside, but without a doubt the best is on the outside.

  • Must visit place if you're ever in Moscow. Great place to hangout. I was very lucky to visit when I was there for the world cup. Long queue to get in though

  • 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...

  • I was lucky to visit years ago and it was one of the most breathtaking buildings I've ever seen. I would love to visit again. It is truly beautiful and marvelous and my favourite cathedral in the world.

  • • One of the Most top sights not just in Moscow or Russia but in the world. • A world famous landmark • It was built from 1555–61 on orders from Ivan the Terrible and commemorates a capture of Kazan and Astrakhan • The church has been part of the Moscow Kremlin and Red Square UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1990. • To enter inside costs 350 rubs Briefly, you MUST come and see it.
