St. Basil's Cathedral

Built by Ivan the Terrible in the 1550s, this intriguing Cathedral bordering Red Square consists of nine separate chapels, each capped with its own individually shaped and colored dome.

Reviewed By Lynn B - Gatineau, Canada

Moscow's iconic St Basil's Cathedral on Red Square is absolutely extraordinary! It is possibly the most unique looking attraction I've ever seen! I loved it!
St Basil's colorful and ornate exterior, with its remarkable onion domes, makes it a recognizable symbol of Moscow around the world. I found the interior also quite unique. It is made up of nine chapels. A maze of galleries takes you from chapel to chapel.The walls are painted in floral and geometric patterns. I recommend going inside!
St Basil's was built by Ivan the Terrible in the 16th century to commemorate a military victory. It became a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1990.
Visiting St-Basil's had been on my bucket list for a long time. It was totally worth it!

Church of The Holy Virgin

Reviewed By Dim150 - Moscow Oblast, Russia

This visit will be very interesting if you understand russian ortodox architecture . There is not church in Russia like this. The church unusual inside and outside. There is nice park around of church, you can walk, see a river's slow waters and enjoy the sunny glare of the crown at the top of the church.

Vadim Zadorozhny's Museum of Equipment

Reviewed By Andrew K - London

This is a great museum to see if you're a car, aviation or military vehicle enthusiast.
The planes, tanks and other military hardware is all Soviet / Russian, while there are two sections of cars, one dedicated to classic Western cars, and another to Soviet vehicles.
In addition, there is a nice cafeteria where one can enjoy simple but tasty Russian food.

Red Square (Krasnaya ploshchad)

Red Square, once the site of executions and military parades, sits smack in the middle of Moscow, bounded on one side by the Kremlin walls and Lenin's tomb and on the other by GUM, the country's largest department store.

Reviewed By Lynn B - Gatineau, Canada

Red Square in Moscow is an absolute must! It is a place of historical significance and unites many iconic sites including St Basil's Cathedral, the Kremlin, Lenin's Mausoleum, the GUM department store, the State History Museum and more! Red Square is grand, impressive and unlike anything else! Another check on the bucket list!

Moscow Metro

Riding the city's underground subway system is a sightseeing tour in itself with huge, vaulted, marble-columned stations - some with ornate mosaics and splendid stained glass - designed and decorated by famous Russian architects and sculptors.

Reviewed By Lynn B - Gatineau, Canada

Who knew the underground could be so beautiful? Moscow’s metro stations are ornately decorated and full of unique art and design. Much of it captures historical events. Some metro stations are quite luxurious with splendid halls and chandeliers. The metro stations are treasures in of themselves. The only unfortunate thing is we happened to visit during the rush hour and it got very busy and crowded. On the other hand, it gave us a more authentic experience.

The State Tretyakov Gallery

The State Tretyakov Gallery is the national treasury of Russian fine art and contains more than 180,000 works of painting, sculpture and graphics created by generations of Russian artists.

Reviewed By Madan Gopal M - Bengaluru, India

We visited this Museum by alighting at Tretyakovskaya metro station on orange line after changing at Novokuznetskaya station on green line. This is outstanding museum housing world's best collection of Russian icons and pre-revolutionary art. There are many sections in different floors and thanks to audio guide I could prioritize the best displayed pieces to see. One needs at least four hours to explore the beautiful collection in the museum. A must for the travellers interested in art, paintings and historical past of Russia.Photography without using flash is allowed and there is admission ticket plus additional charges for audio guide.

Tsarytsino Open-Air History and Architectural Museum

Reviewed By Robbie D - Inverness, Scotland, United Kingdom

This is a feeble attempt to compete with St Petersburg attractions. It is not a restoration but the development of an old building shell. The bulk of the contents are modern reproductions and most paintings we saw were actually dated 2006/2007 and pretty poor.
For us it was a complete waste of 3 hours.
Worse still was that the bulk of the main building was closed to the public at the time as it had been hired out!!!
The park area was good but not a lot else can be said.
Avoid!!!
