St. Basil’s Cathedral and Red Square Tour

Red Square St.Basil Cathedral
Destination — Moscow
3 hours tour

Description

This tour will open your eyes to many interesting facts, but one stands out among the rest—did you know that the official name of St. Basil’s Cathedral is actually the Cathedral of the Intercession of the Virgin by the Moat? They say that the famous Muscovite miracle worker collected money for the construction of the cathedral; the madman Basil walked the streets of Moscow barefoot and nearly naked for more than a year, preaching kindness to those around him. Legend has it that he was also a prophet; allegedly, Basil foresaw the Moscow fire of 1547.

On this tour, you will learn more about why St. Basil’s is considered both a cathedral and a monument, and why Ivan the Terrible decreed that the architect who built this grand structure be stricken blind after its completion.
