You see this iconic cathedral in almost every post card from Moscow, but to see it in person, just takes your breath away!

There’s nothing quite like this….with its domed turrets and bright colours, the exterior is spellbinding making it the most visible of Moscow's monuments. Take a tour inside too. Up the spiral staircases, through narrow winding passageways, its beautiful murals ,and if you’re patient enough you might get the chance to hear cappella singing by an all male choir that is quite remarkable.

expensive entry fee and extra for taking photos it is unlike any cathedral you have ever been in but inside it is very beautiful and impressive. put your normal expecatations of cathderals aside it is more like a museum than a cathedral

The exterior of the Cathedral is truly amazing with all it's colorful onion domes but if you go inside you get a whole different perspective of Red Square and if you're really lucky you will hear a quartet of acapella singers. They use the amazing acoustics within the tower of the cathedral to a wonderful advantage.

The history and paintings in this Amazing building. It is a place of peace and quiet. The unfortunate part is that is not a place for anyone handicapped.
