The Izmailovo Museum-ReserveIzmailovo – the country Tsar's residence – is a majestic estate with beautiful architectural monuments. The Monarchic court is located on the man-made island and the stone bridge connected it with the unique Bridge Tower decorated with multicolored tiles. Architectural structures of the island, icon paintings, arts and crafts at the Bridge Tower show the image of «Garden of Eden» in Izmailovo. Here in 1688 young Peter the Great found a small old english boat and since that moment he ordered to call Izmailovo «the Cradle of Russian fleet».
The Red SquareBuilt directly east of the Kremlin, Moscow’s historic fortress and the center of the Russian government, Red Square is home to some of the country’s most distinctive and important landmarks. Its origins date to the late 15th century, when the Muscovite prince Ivan III (Ivan the Great) expanded the Kremlin to reflect Moscow’s growing power and influence. An important public marketplace and meeting place for centuries, Red Square houses the ornate 16th-century St. Basil’s Cathedral, the State Historical Museum and the enormous GUM Department Store, as well as a modernist mausoleum for the revolutionary leader Vladimir Lenin.
The Moscow KremlinThe Moscow Kremlin is one of the biggest and most beautiful architectural ensembles in the world. The first walls of the Kremlin were constructed in the middle of the 12th century. Two centuries later Moscow became the capital of a small principality and since then the Kremlin has been the residence of the Russian governors. Today part of the premises of the Kremlin is occupied by the President’s offices and this territory is closed for public admission. Main attractions: the Cathedral of the Assumption, the Archangels Cathedral, the Cathedral of the Annunciation, the Bell Tower of Ivan the Great, the Church of the Deposition of the Robe, the State Armory and the Diamond Fund.
Cathedral of Christ the SaviourOne of the most famous religious sights in Moscow is The Cathedral of Christ the Saviour. Situated on the bank of the Moskva River the Cathedral is known as the tallest Orthodox church in the world. The current church is the second to stand on this site. The original church, originally commissioned after the defeat of Napoleon, was built during the 19th century and took more than 40 years to build. It was destroyed in 1931 to make way for a colossal Palace of the Soviets to house the country's legislature, the Supreme Soviet of the USSR. Following the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the current church was rebuilt on the site during 1995–2000.
The St. Basil’s CathedralThe well-known St. Basil’s Cathedral is located on the opposite side of the Voskresensky Gate of the Red Square. It was built under the rule of Tsar Ivan IV the Terrible in 1554-1560 in honour of conquest of the Kazan Khanate. According to the legend, when the Tsar saw the finished cathedral, he ordered the architects to be blinded so that they would not build such a beautiful building anywhere else.
Despite the gruesome story behind it, the Cathedral itself is an architectural masterpiece consisting of nine altars spread out on one single foundation. St. Basil’s is a must-see for anyone visiting Moscow.
