It is a nice place, however not particularly special. If you get extra time, which is hard in a city as Moscow, then go to see its interior architecture.

Charming little meringue-like cathedral on the corner of the Red Square. Be aware that it's an active church and be resectfull. The interior might be even more beautifull than St. Basil's!

But as the stones of a building count the more, the more some meaning affords to them, we walk even into this church and we are interested in it; because the stones are no longer the original ones, but...

Lovely little church next to GUM department store, shame not allowed to take photos. The interior richly decorated, shame they do not have postcards as a souvenir

You will most likely see this church if you are on Red Square. We did not enter the building as there was a mass going on when we wanted to go in, but it is beautiful on the outside.

Staying in Red Square & Kitay-gorod

Neighborhood Profile
Red Square & Kitay-gorod
This small yet important neighbourhood is full of state institutions and offices. To understand where modern Russia began, go to the Kremlin and State Historical Museum on Red Square. After satisfying your historical curiosities, indulge in modern pleasures at GUM Department Store - not just for the sake of shopping but for the sake of architectural pleasure as well.
