Several very interesting frescoes and icons. I particularly liked the royal altar doors, the "Miracle of the Robe of Holy Virgin during the Siege of Constantinople," and the intricately carved Northern portal.

Kind of non- descriptive compared to the other churches in Cathedral Square. It was constructed in 1484-85 and is part of a complex of domestic churches of Russian tsars. Other more interesting churches to view if you run out of time, skip it.

Wooden sculptures in this museum are really very interesting, small rooms but worth a visit. Steep steps to get in so be careful. The Crucifixion has so much detail you can stand there for ages just looking at it.

Red Square & Kitay-gorod
This small yet important neighbourhood is full of
state institutions and offices. To understand where
modern Russia began, go to the Kremlin and State
Historical Museum on Red Square. After satisfying your
historical curiosities, indulge in modern pleasures at
GUM Department Store - not just for the sake of
shopping but for the sake of architectural pleasure as
well.
