When you think of Russia you conjure up St. Basil's Cathedral, an icon of Moscow. From any angle the architecture is just amazing!
It takes your breath away!

General tips:
-Super busy during FIFA so would recommend buying tickets online in advance. If you line up on the day (June 2018), average wait time in line is around 1 hour.
-Ticket price is around 1000 rubles (i thought this was quite steep to be honest). 700 rubles if you have your FIFA fan ID.

The Cathedral:
Both the outside and inside of the cathedral are equally lovely and definitely worth the visit.

This is a beautiful old cathedral and makes for a great visit. They charge a fee to enter but it is worth the price of admission. It is a must see on any visit to Moscow.

A very typical russian architectural design. Could be considered as the symbol of Moscow for many visitors.
