Reviewed 23 February 2012

You have to pay to get inside but it really worth! There are a lot of small churchs inside tne cathedral, and they are very interesting to see. You can not go to Moscow and skip this place

“ancient inside”
Reviewed 19 February 2012

It looks newish from the outside, but inside your really feel the age of this church (not really a cathedral). It can be very cold in the upper regions in winter...

The outside is spectacular - especially lit up at night. The church itself is closed as coupel of days per week.

“Picture perfect”
Reviewed 12 February 2012

The St Basil's Cathedral is one of the most well-known Cathedrals in Moscow. Try to read about the history of the Cathedral before your visit as it will just enrich the experience.
