A visit to see this famous Catedral was a priority while I'm here it would have to be the ultimate symbol of Russia and I decided to visit it straight away. St.Basils Cathedral would have to be the most photographed building in Moscow...and it easy to see why with its unique style and lovely intricate and colourful "onion" styled domes.
Located at the far end of Red Square and looking like the scene off a chocolate box , St Basils takes up a very prominent position within the Square. The interior is well worth the visit to look at the medieaval paintings on the walls.This is an immensely popular place for visitors and I thought that the crowds would be overwhelming , but the huge area of Red Square sees the crowds diminish in its huge area..This is also a very popular place for tourists and visiting Russians alike..I was very fortunate as it was such a beautiful Moscow summers day when I visited but I imagined it would take on a postcard appearance when it was covered with snow also..
