It's one of those buildings that will stand out in your eye line photos of Moscow. It was destroyed by the Soviets then completely restored. Incredible!

When I was in Moscow, this was one of the great attractions along with St Basal Cathedral; Red Square, the University on Lennon Heights and the Kremlin that has the largest bell in the world and the largest cannon in the world. What an experience
