Cathedral of Christ the Redeemer, Moscow: 33 reviews and 57 photos
Well, this is a 'you can't miss seeing it' more than a must see. It stands out like a homing beacon to the heavens. this massive orthodox cathedral is a near replica of a church that stood here until Stallin knocked it down s few years back. His intention was to build a large memorial to Lennin, but the plans got scrapped and a swimming pool was built instead. The mayor of Moscow had the pool filled in and the new cathedral built. The inside is rather impressive for a new church.
Directions: Metro stop Krapotkenskaya. If you can't see it when you get off themetro, you didn't get off in the right place....
