"Krasny"...the original word for Red Square...translated means Beautiful.

Red Square lives up to it's original title.  Beautiful.  
Inspirational, jaw-dropping architecture, and the sense of decades of history. The Kremlin towers, St. Basil's Cathedral, miles of cobblestones, Lenin's Mausoleum, the armoury chamber, cathedral square, museums, and concert halls to name just a few.  



This is said to be the center of Moscow.  If you stand in the center and flip a coin and it lands on the gold markers, it is said that your wishes will come true.  

Our first visit there was last Monday with the Sister Volunteers.  Inside this little church was a Russian Orthodox Priest praying.  


Just one of the many, many examples of the Russian Orthodox Church artwork that adorns their cathedrals. Intricate and detailed in every fashion.


A view of Cathedral Square.  The Cathedral of the Annunciation, The Cathedral of the Assumption, The Cathedral of the Archangel, as well as the Church of the Twelve Apostles, and The Church of the Deposition of the Robe. 


April 22, 2017 we toured the Kremlin with our friends the Limb's.  


We have learned that in Russia if you can make anything, you make it BIG.  This cannon and the bell are no exception.  


I am not sure how we lucked out today, but we timed our visit to witness the Kremlin Regiment
perform.  Truly FANTASTIC!  And please be dazzled that I figured out how to post the video that we filmed.  I know I am.
