Towering over Moscow’s Red Square, this UNESCO World Heritage Site was originally commissioned by Ivan the Terrible in the 16th century to be the nation’s tallest structure. Between the kaleidoscopic colors and patterns—and the profusion of onion-shaped domes—the cathedral is nothing if not distinctive. Legend even has it that the tsar blinded the architect before the building was done so the design could never be replicated.

I've never seen this for myself, but 3 of my 4 grandparents hailed from Russia (2 from Minsk and 1 from Odessa). It must have been such a wonderful trip - I'd so love to visit Moscow in this lifetime.

Lovely photo. I visited Russia over 20 years ago, and just loved Moscow! I had always been fascinated by St Basil's Cathedral (indeed, onion domes in general!) and as it wasn't on our included itinerary we took ourselves in there. I was surprised to discover it isn't actually one large church but consists of a number of small chapels but it was lovely. Sitting in Red Square opposite The Kremlin watching the world go by was quite a surreal experience, but I have to say I would have happily avoided the obligatory visit to Lenin's tomb! Thanks for the reminder of a series of amazing experiences all those years ago!

I hear you ...when this mess is over with, I'm heading somewhere, doesn't matter where and a train ride would be perfect! If you do get to try out the two I suggested, i really hope you and hubby enjoy... stay safe. (Your trips sound great fun) :-) Maggie

Wow - neat links! Thanks, Maggie. We've been through Pigeon Forge on a motorcycle but didn't even know there was a R/R there. We also didn't know about the Great Smokies R/R, but I know we'll be going that way again at some point. On the way home from our last motorcycle trip to SC to visit my mother there, we took a ride on the Cass Scenic R/R in Cass, WV. It was a 4-1/2 hour ride to the summit of Bald Knob (elev. 4842 feet). We totally enjoyed that ride. The next time we head to SC (post-coronavirus), I guess we'll need to look at the trains you've sent info on.

Russia has some of the most beautiful colorful buildings I've ever seen! We have a Odessa in Texas, my brother lived there. I read about you and your hubby riding bikes and taking train rides. Have you heard of the one in the Great Smokey Mountains? If not i'm adding a couple of links you can check out about it. We rode a few years back and really enjoyed it. :-) Maggie

Me as well - and I love that movie too! Three of my grandparents were actually from Russia (my mother's father was from Odessa and my father's parents were from Minsk)

I've never seen this building myself, but it looks incredibly beautiful - it must be an amazing sight in person.

I saved loads of full pages of buildings and landmarks because I lost all of my puzzles and I will put them in a photo album. I enjoy all the pretty bright and colourful puzzles that catch my eye.

194 is the number of solves when I solved it.

The Kremlin is my favourite building. I call it the onion dome building.
