One of the key landmarks - a must on your visit to Moscow. Glorious artwork and once again I found the entry prices very affordable. Would recommend this.

This is the best one after St Basels, it is inside kremlin walls so to have a look at this you will have to purchase a ticket of 500 RUB which grants you entry to inside of kremlin walls and it is totally worth it as there are lot of churches and you get to know a lot about the... More

Quite an impressive cathedral. Can easily include this site when visiting the Pushkin Museum as they're so close. Not to be missed. Interiors are stunning. Sadly no photos allowed.

Christ The Savior is a huge cathedral on the river. It is very impressive with its gold dome and white walls. There are some very interesting bronze statues on each corner of the building. This is an active church so no shorts etc. There was a service when we went inside. I like the pyramid structure that protected the inner... More

Considered as the tallest orthodox Christian church in the world, it gives the look of a Sikh gurudwara ( Sikh temples in India). It is beautifully constructed and has a gilded tomb.

Destroy by Stalin and after rebuilt, this massive Cathedral its a landmark for the Orthodox Church. Its so big, that you can easily spot it hundreds of meters away, specially if you are arriving from the river. There is a very convenient metro station (Kropotkinskaya Station) with an access just beneath, but if you want, you can easily walk from... More

Symbol of modern Russian orthodox church: trading, carwash, fast-food, no spirit. Worth visiting for those who wonder where Pussy Riot performed their punk prayer.

At the end, It was great visit because the history of it and the structure in and out. It was worth the visit also... More

The Cathedral has a great atmosphere there and beautiful wall drawings of old times. It is a great example of a Russian Orthodox cathedrals event though the place is not as religious due to the large amount of tourists but it is still a great place to visit and experience those feelings of the old times. Strongly recommend to those... More

This is a glorious landmark of Moscow. The cathedral looks really amazing with its Russian art adorned all over. From the top, I can see magnificent view over Moscow city and the stunning Moscow river as well.
