    A breathtaking jewel

    This is a must see! Even though we were surprised by the small size of the cathedral, but it adds to its charm. The flowers painted on the wall etc. Our guide Anastasia, was as charming as the cathedral, a petite young lady with a gentle voice and good english. She was very well informed. Jer explanations were clear and answerd to every question we had with patience and a smile. Thank you very much for making out tour a memorable one.

    Very informative and intersting!

    That's the place in Moscow which I certainly recommend! Our guide Tatyana made this tour fantastic. I would never learn so much without the guide. She spoke very good English and was very interesting person too. Russian history is unique! Cathedral inside is very unusual, actually there are 10 different churches connected. We also saw some beautiful places around the Cathedrals and everything was great! Was a bit cold outside but it was definitely worth it!
