Go twice if you can, once in the daytime and once at night. Red Square is lit up so photos are possible.

so awesome to see, go at night as well breath taking. The cathedral costs money to get in, and they only take rubles so have it with you. Also, their is audio in any language which was awesome, again take rubles to pay for it.

St. Basil's is one of those places you must see if you go to Moscow. Make sure you take photos as the Cathedral really is spectacular in any weather, day or night. Arriving in the morning we were able to take pictures up close with no one in the way, later it was much busier.
