"St Basils Cathedral" Kremlin Tip by Mikebb
Kremlin, Moscow: 230 reviews and 425 photos
We caught glimpses from the distance as our coach found its way to the parking lot. The colour and onion domes stand out against the skyline in a blaze of colour. To my mind it is the outstanding building in the Kremlin district.
We arrived late morning with a brilliant blue sky being the ideal background for our photos. When compared with photos taken later in the day (2nd photo @1:11pm) you will see the grey sky, and this photo by comparison is disappointing.
Ivan the Terrible commissioned the Cathedral between 1555 & 1561. We did not enter the Cathedral
