Historical Monuments in Moscow
St. Basil's Cathedral
(46)
St. Basil´s Cathedral is on the southeast part of the Red Square, and stands as a symbol of the city of Moscow. The Cathedral is an orthodox temple and was constructed by Ivan the Terrible in the year 1555 to commemorate the conquest of Kazan.

Squares in Moscow
Red Square
(53)
I put my photos of the trip and my totally positive experience here. I entered this square without looking at, really. I mean, I was looking at it from the ground. Once I was in it and I was in the middle looking up I stayed there 20 mins looking at the St. Basil and the Kremlin. It was a dream come true. If you like this corner and you want to continue traveling through Mongolia, check out my other pictures! And if you have any questions, just ask. I'll gladly answer. CHEERS FROM MINUBE!
Of Cultural Interest in Moscow
Moscow Kremlin
(26)
The biggest attraction in Kazan is Kremlin, a world heritage site. With white, wooden ceilings, it´s an authentic beauty that is little known. Only some Russian tourists stroll along its streets. The blue and white mosque stands inside. This city has a great Russian-Muslim mix and this is very visible in the Kremlin. There is also an Orthodox Cathedral which was built over an old mosque to claim religious power. When the new mosque was built, it became the star of the Kremlin and Orthodox Cathedral has been left to the background. It shows the great rivalry that exists in the capital of Tatarstan between the two great religions.

GUM Red Square

Also is really expensive to buy clothes or anything here, but if you visit Moscow you have to go to the Gum, and also to go to the bathrooms, they are payed in the first floor, and free in the third one, but you have to see yourself the ones that are payed, the cost if I remember it well is of about ₽130-₽200 (I went long time ago, so I don't have this information fresh)

The Moscow Metro
(27)
Admittedly, the Moscow metro is the strangest I've ever visited. From the very beginning it's interesting, when you put a kind of coin in to go between turnstyles between the apparent coldness of the Russian passersby. Sometimes, the stations are large, cold and have endless escalators that connect with other stations, which were old bunkers during the war. Other stations that seem to be miniature museums with bronze sculptures, lamps and ceilings that look like the ones in palaces and a statue of Lenin present in most of them. I recommend anyone that who visits Moscow enjoys this great city through its public transportation system, as it becomes more of a travel experience and a quick and cheap way to move around the Russian capital.

Cathedral of Christ the Saviour
(16)
Orthodox Cathedral in Moscow, Russia. It's actually quite new, it was completely demolished by Stalin and after the fall of communism, it was rebuilt exactly as it was before thanks to private donations (it's said that many of which came from the Russian mafia). It's an impressive structure with a beautiful interior, actually you don't notice how new it is. A dress code is required for entry (no shorts or anything that shows the shoulders), and you have to show respect inside. The Russians have become quite devoted in recent years.

Markets in Moscow
Izmailovsky Market
(14)
You can arrive at this market by taking the metro to Izmailovsky Kremlin station. It is a very kitsch style market; its abandoned amusement park now reused as a flea market. Here tourists can find souvenirs at a great price and Russian citizens will buy clothes like that found in any market. Not is unmissable but it is very interesting.
Museums in Moscow
Lenin's Mausoleum
(14)
Lenin made it clear that when he died he did not want any tributes or special events held in his honor. They didn't pay him much attention. Visit his corpse is an almost surreal experience, especially for the level of ceremony that imprinted at the sight. You can only visit it about 3 hours a day, strictly forbidden to enter with bags, cameras or mobiles, and they demand absolute silence and even the guards will call you out for having your hands in your pockets. One comes out of the tomb with the impression of having seen the body of a religious figure.

Komsomolskaya Metro Station
(8)
I agree with you that this is the coolest station, at least out of the ones I saw, I was pleasantly surprised with the trip to the Yaroslav station. I've added some pictures of the things that stuck out including the lamp under the great mosaic of the red star, amazing, and nobody ever looks up hehehe. I imagine that in order to be able to recreate the stations it shouldn't be so crowded.

Museums in Moscow
State Historical Museum
(13)
Watch the prices...in Russia, prices tend to fluctuate. You can get discounts at the State Historical Museum and other museums with the ISIC student card, but they're not always generous (as was the case at St Basil's Cathedral). They've obviously made an effort with the design - each room is designed in the style of a different era - but the collections presented are quite poor. The exhibits cover the Stone Age to the present, but all the explanations are in Russian. If you have time, visit it.

Cathedrals in Moscow
Kazan Cathedral
(7)
To the left of the entrance to the Red Square through the winter gate, lies this small cathedral, which is a replica from 1992, as the original was destroyed by Stalin in 1935. Today it probably has one of the highest attendance for a Russian Orthodox mass. They have speakers to hear the mass from outside so that everyone can listen. Admission is free, but often the main room is full. The cathedral itself doesn't have anything extraordinarily interesting.

Novodevichy Convent
(9)
This is a photo taken on my last holiday - I loved the reflection of the Novodevichy Convent on the lake. The lake is said to be where Tchaikovsky was inspired to compose his famous Swan Lake, but today you can only see ducks.
Shopping Centres in Moscow
Arbat Street
(9)
This is one of the most extravagant streets of Moscow, no doubt. This street is supposed to be the modern version of the Old Arbat, a sign of communism with a human face. On one side, cars (the street must be about 60 meters wide), on the other side casinos (the effect is stunning at night, because the Russians do not skimp on the neon lights), and the cafes and restaurants. There is also one of the largest bookstores in the city (with books in foreign languages), a cinema, sometimes with films in original languages.
Markets in Moscow
Izmaylovo Kremlin
(6)
On the second day of our vacation in Moscow we decided to get gifts to the family so my wife let herself go a bit in a little souvenir shops. This market is surrounded by a kind of theme park with wooden structures which also includes a famous church. This made buying cheap matriuskas more enjoyable. Next door is a park and an interesting cathedral of the same name.

Muzeon Park of Arts
(5)
Fans of the Soviet regime and its huge symbols, should go to this park in the heart of Moscow. The fall of the Empire took place here in the year 1991, the statues have been stored here: Lenin, Djerzinski, Gorki . For just 50 rubles you can wander through this tiny park along the new Tretyakov Gallery, on the river.
Historical Monuments in Moscow
Monument to the Conquerors of Space
(12)
Built in 1964, this is a great example of a Soviet monument. Gigantic, spectacular and with just a touch of kitsch. In the surrounding park you can see other sculptures of famous astronauts, engineers of major space programs and, of course, Lenin leading the people towards progress. Inside the Monument to Space Conquerors is a museum on the achievements during the time that Russia was the USSR, that I didn't get to, but I'm told it's interesting.

Kremlin Walls
(4)
The Moscow Kremlin is the most famous building in the city, and I'd go as far as to say one of the most important in the world. It was an ancient fortress built by the river that was enlarged over time until it is what you see today. It has towers, five golden domes and, most recently, a giant Communist era conference center built in a modern block style. It is not a private area, and can be visited.
