St. Basel’s cathedral

St Basels cathedral 2006Visiting Saint Basel’s cathedral (0,5 – 1,5 hour) in Red Square could be a part of  your City Tour or an independent item for your leisure time in Moscow.

This unique masterpiece of the 16th century (1555 – 1561) Russian church architecture has never been destroyed or blown up. “Learning” its history composes in- and out-door observation parts.

Since 1922 the church has been used as a museum. Short but high stepped staircase leading up to the second floor  will thrill you and let experience some “climbing” in the downtown of Moscow.
