St Basils Cathedral, Moscow

Inspiration for the design of St Bail’s came from the flame of a rising bonfire.
I think some aspects of St. Basil’s look more like an exotic palace than a cathedral.
I love the spirals on the cathedral that look like brightly coloured lolly pop heads.
St Basil’s looked equally amazing while it was covered in snow with the white sky as a backdrop. It was like this for the majority of our stay which made picture taking pretty difficult when the temperatures were -6C!

    Oh, oh I can’t wait to finally visit Moscow! The architecture is so colorful and unique, I love it. I know I will stare at it for hours and snap thousands of photos when I finally make it there. Great shots, btw!
