Russia is pretty much inaccessible for everyone, not in a geographical sense of course. Apparently everyone needs to apply for visa in order to be granted entry. The police also has the right to demand your passport for random checks. That being said, it did not stop the flocks of tourists I saw around Saint Basil’s Cathedral when I was there.
The Saint Basil’s Cathedral (Собор Василия Блаженного) is the most iconic landmark in Moscow (and possibly the rest of Russia too). It’s shaped like the flames of a rising bonfire and what distinguishes it from the rest of the buildings in Russia is that no other building that was built during the same era looks anything like it.
It was much smaller than I had expected it to be, if there had to be a relative size comparison, I’d say it looks like the size of a Disney castle. 😀 I’m really glad I was able to visit.
It was a relatively cold day for summer! Wish I had checked the weather before I went out.
