These churches are different than the normal Catholic churches you normally see, mostly because they are not Catholic :-) - These are more for Icon's and saints where an individual pray to the sait/icon they hope can help them.

Cathedral of the Annunciation is beautiful. It is located with other churches within the Kremlin walls. Well worth a visit. You can go inside but no photos.

This is another beautiful cathedral to see when you visit the Kremlin. The onion domes of this one are all gold in colour and there are plenty of impressive frescoes to admire inside. Of course photography isn't permitted in the interior.

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.
