Russia Things to Do: 285 reviews and 525 photos


St.Basil's Cathedral in Moscow is a must for all visitors. The entrance fee is 100 Roubls and it is rather a museum today than an "active" church - so you will be allowed take pics inside and ladies will not necessarily have to take a head-scarf.
Inside there are many small churches - as you see already by the many towers of the church from outside - these churches are mostly very small rooms,for maybe 20 people, beautifully decorated with icons and paintings.

In many of these small rooms its very hard to take any good photos and especially in summertime this church is full of tourists and local people.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
