St. Basil’s Cathedral is my favorite piece of architecture in the world. The beautiful colors and design are very unique.
I don’t believe people realize how colorful Russia really is. I remember before I left for Russia, people asked me why I wanted to go to such a cold, drab country. I hope this photo I took changes the minds of these people. Russia is a beautiful, colorful, interesting country – it is truly one-of-a-kind.
St. Basil’s is unique in and of itself. When one enters most cathedrals, she is faced with a large room with rows of seats and a large alter or pulpit at the front; this is not the case in St. Basil’s. When I entered St. Basil’s for the first time, I was speechless. I entered through a small room with golden, painted icons. This room led to a series of stone passageways. The walls of some of the passageways were painted with simple floral patterns. They led to tiny rooms with tall, ornate icons and high ceilings. St. Basil’s is a cathedral like no other. Entering this holy place is entering a beautiful adventure. Truly an amazing experience.
