St. Basil's Cathedral
The first thing you'll probably notice after entering the Red Square is the beautifully colored onion domes of the Basil Cathedral, and a magical view of one of the most famous landmarks in Russia. But it's interesting to know that the bright colors were only added 200 years later to its exterior walls. Another funny note is that the former dictator Josef Stalin wasn't really happy about how the location of the church blocked the entrance to the Red Square for his mass demonstrations, so he considered demolishing the cathedral. Luckily, someone made him change his mind.
I am here to pen down my experiences about Russian capital, Moscow. Moscow, one of the most excellent and decent city in terms of its culture, architecture amd scenic beauty. The architecture its buildings dating back from 18th century is worth seeing. The monuments and places like Kremlin, Red square, St. Basil's Cathedral, Moskva River, Ostankino Tv tower are at least once a lifetime visit. Once you visited these locations you can't just fade out of that memories. The symbolic place of Kremlin and red square are so grand that I am unable to be describe it in a writeup. The city of Moscow has created memories in my life that I can't forget in a lifetime. The most scenic view in a late night cruise through moskva river. It is must watch ride in the city. I suggest to travel by raddisson cruise. Moscow has good to ultimate luxury hotels like Royal Radisson Hotel. So, living is not a big problem in moscow. But it is quite expensive city. You can shop from Malls to Street. My opinion would be that Galleria mall is a must visit. It is a 19th century mall. Even shopping in streets would be a good idea. Moscow is a city which has 4 international airports and 9 Railway terminals. It is a kind of European city which has a taste ranging from old russian culture to Ultra modern lifestyle. It is quite a silent city having good nightlife at weekends. The cathedrals of Moscow are worth seeing. I had given some special time for Metro stations. I suggest you to travel by metro. They are really excellent in architecture.Language is a barrier in Russia. You will find it somewhat difficult to interact with local people, but the most important thing I noticed is that the people in Moscow are too friendly, you ask them a thing they will help you out of any problem. For example take my case, I was unable to find a taxi for a long time, I asked a local to help me out he actually came with me to a bus stop, he showed us the routes and even came with us. The local taxi app will be very helpful.Also check : http://adiroworld.blogspot.in/2017/03/moscowgetaway.htmlh?m=1
