Everyone associates both Moscow and Russia with this cathedral. It looks great day or night from every angle. The interior is very interesting, but crowded, so it is pointless to try to take photos.

Historical place right in the edge of Red Square. Amazing art work and architecture. We didn’t go inside, just decided to walk around and make some pics. From that place you can easily find Zariadie park. Also beautiful place to see

My foreign colleagues have been to Moscow many times, but never in Moscow underground. We had only one hour and made a short tour: Novoslobodskaya, Ploshad Revoluzii, Mayakovskaya, Belorussian. My colleagues were amazed. Moscow underground is the most beautiful and definitely worth of visiting at...More
