An icon on the Moscow eyeline

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
