St. Basil’s Cathedral
Probably the most iconic building in Russia, St. Basil’s Cathedral dates back to 1561, when it was built for Ivan the Terrible. It’s now a museum and apparently has the official name of ‘The Cathedral of the Intercession of the Most Holy Theotokos on the Moat.’ No prizes for guessing why people still call it St. Basil’s.
Bolshoi Theatre Website and Ticket info: https://www.bolshoi.ru/en/ The Bolshoi Theatre is a renowned symbol of Russia and one of the world’s premier ballet and opera theatres.
Lenin’s Mausoleum Lenin’s Mausoleum is free to enter, and while queues are shorter than they used to be, it’s still worth planning plenty of time if you want to go inside. Lenin’s body is still on public display, so this trip comes with a slight advisory warning first in case you’re squeamish. Show on Map
