  • It was very interesting to deal with high reliefs of the temple. Imagining the steps that appear on the walls.

  • Impressive, huge building but feels somewhat cold and unfriendly, maybe the modern style and the fence around. For some reason roads were closed here, I was not able to get close to the church, let alone visit it... maybe next time. The interior may change my rating at a later time.
  • This Cathedrale is my favorite one in Moscow. Less people and the beauty of the paintings and craftmanship inside is breath taking! You must go if you are in Moscow.
  • Beautiful and great to see. i liked the outside more thhan the inside:)
  • Just a way to steal your money, they say you can't get in with uncovered knees but even if you manage to cover them, they still want you to buy their trousers
  • A must visit when in Moscow but not inside if not wearing long trousers.

Where to stay in Moscow

The capital of Russia and a huge metropolis, Moscow offers a plethora of different types of accommodations. Many renowned hotel chains are represented in the city, and some of its hotels rank among the world's most luxurious and expensive. Those traveling on a more modest budget can choose among the boutique or Soviet-era hotels. There are also numerous hostels and short-term rental apartments throughout the city. When choosing a place to stay, especially if you're only planning for a short visit, always bear in mind the size of Moscow. Staying too far from the center might mean that the precious time you could spend on sightseeing will be wasted in traffic and transport.
