10 Magnificent Things to Do in Moscow


10. St. Basil’s Cathedral

The Cathedral of the Protection of Most Holy Theotokos on the Moat, St. Basil’s Cathedral for short, is the huge, colorful, onion-domed structure that you see on the news when shown a shot of the Kremlin. Many people mistakenly assume that this structure is the Kremlin that the news talks about. The Kremlin, though, is really the little structure behind it. A visit to this iconic cathedral can be the highlight of your visit.

Moscow may not get mentioned in the same breath with New York or London as a tourist destination. The city has so much to offer, though, that it deserves to be way up there, at the top of any tourist’s list of places to visit. Have you ever been to Moscow?
