  • At a particular point that lies at the confluence of the Moskva and Yauza, on the hill that practically separates the two rivers, lies this splendid example of religious buildings in Muscovite Baroque, built in about 1700 and altered several times, until 1882. The three-tiered Bell Tower is of 1771 and is definitely more classic. As often happened in this case is built on the ruins of an earlier stone church already documented in 1631. One of the few churches that fortunately was not closed in the Soviet period and for this reason has some valuable icons from other temples destroyed. A short, steep staircase, totally inconspicuous side between the houses and gives access to the Church, which dominates the small landscaped garden with its typical bright red. The Interior is valuable, mystical, with multiple icons and sacred images that lead to the iconostasis, which is a triumph of inlaid and gilded stucco. Really valuable in the collection, well worth a visit.

  • STS. Peter and Paul near Yauza gate was built in the early 18th century. It should not be confused with the Cathedral the Cathedral of SS. Peter and Paul, nearby and a Lutheran. It is evident that the Church was recently renovated, so pleasing to the eye. Is the enclosed area. Recommend, though I can say that numerous churches, visited in one day, although each interesting in their own way, but ultimately merged in memory into a single whole.

  • Wonderful Temple tucked away in a quiet side street in China town area. Temple qualitatively renovated and tidy-you can see that the community tries to contain it in perfect condition, as well as a small surrounding area. Very recommend to include it in your program walks through China town.

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.
