A must-see of Moscow is St Basil’s Cathedral. Residing inside the Red Square, both of these are UNESCO protected sites due to their rich histories and popularity. The Cathedral was built between 1555-1561 to celebrate the victory of Tsar Ivan the Terrible over Kazan Khanate. Today, it stands as a museum which offers up its story to the people of the world.
The Red Square is a bustling place that’s home to many significant buildings as well as St Basil’s; Lenin's Mausoleum, the Kremlin and the restored Kazan Cathedral can all be discovered here.
The unusual appearance of St Basil’s cathedral means there’s a lot to uncover. As Russia’s most recognisable building, this one is well worth paying to be shown around.
The inside of the cathedral surprises many. Used to grand, airy spaces of European cathedrals, visitors find St Basil’s interior a shock to the system. Full of stone tunnels, intimate chapels and busy engravings, your eyes are constantly drawn one way: upwards.
This tour has it all... Visit the Red Square, St. Basil's Cathedral and the Kremlin during a 4-hour tour. Enjoy skip-the-line access to each of the attractions. Learn about Russian history and the many dramatic political events which have happened at these sites.
The entry fee is 500 rubles (about £6) but it is free for children up to the age of 16.
The name is said to come, not from the Communist colour red or the red bricks of the square, but from the Russian term “krasnaya” which in old Russian means “pretty” – it’s the Pretty Square.
Between April and May, the weather will have gotten much warmer but the prices won’t have become expensive yet.
