Architecture of capital
Sightseeing in Moscow (check here) is very pleasant, mostly because of beautiful architecture, which we can see in there. The most popular building in there is Saint Basil Cathedral, with amazing, colorful gazebos. You can visit this church also inside, but only when there is no mass going on. Entire Red Place, on which cathedral is situated, is filled with great architecture. Another piece is Lobnoye Mesto, ruins of old building, where all the tsar’s laws were declared. Close to the Red Place we can notice Creml, the head quarter of Russian leaders, constructed in classical style. A lot less conventional, but also interesting in Mausoleum of Lenin. Inside of it you can actually see remains of Vladimir Lenin, which were embalmed after his dead.

Great exhibitions we can find in Pushkin Museum, we can admire in there great example of European Paintings, like works of Gaugin, Matisse, Picasso or Modigliani.
