“Heaven in Red Square”
Reviewed 30 November 2013

Can't stress how beautiful this place is, both inside & out, but looking up at all the beautiful walls, ceilings, chandeliers, iconistases etc really gives you a bad back. To appreciate it, you need to allow plenty of time, don't think you can get round in half an hour, you could spend hours in all the different chapels, cathedrals, corridors etc. And if you're lucky enough to hear the 4 gentlemen singing - well it's absolutely heavenly!!!

“Moscow at its best”
Reviewed 28 November 2013

Wow.

Simply breathtaking. No pictures/photographs do this justice.

Highly recommend visiting from outside but inside too. Beautiful choir singing at time of visit. Unfortunately can't take pictures

“gorgeous”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

If you know anything about Russia you have to of heard about St Basils very iconic very beautiful. It is situated right next to the Kremlin and at the end of red square so its very easy to find. The outside is colourful and the architecture beautiful. Well worth a look

“Must see”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Just like the Red Square, St. Basil's is another must see. And since its located on the Red square, you'll kill two birds with one stone.
