Moscow Things to Do: 1,682 reviews and 3,014 photos

  Infinite variety

Even the most ardent fan of ecclesiastical architecture can end up thinking "Not another church" in Moscow. They are everywhere you look - tiny chapels, imposing edifices, some battered and worn, others gleaming with new paint and gilding. Surrounded by peaceful gardens in a monastery or totally swamped by some ugly building slap-bang next door. And just when you think you never want to see another church again, you come across a delightful fantasy of a dome spangled with golden stars, a pink and white tiered birthday cake, a door through scaffolding and plastic sheeting that leads into a little jewel, and in you go - just this last one.
