This lovely postcard has reached me recently and shows the St. Basil’s Basilika in Moscow. It is also known as the Cathedral of the Protection of Most Holy Theotokos on the Moat or Pokrovsky Cathedral and is situated on the Red Square. It is a Russian Orthodox Church and one of the most famous buildings in Moscow. It was built in the 16th century on orders from Ivan The Terrible to commemorate the capture of Kazan.

One of the biggest cities in Europe and the capital of Russia is Moscow. The above postcard shows you the beautiful Moscow Kremlin which is the official residence of the Russian President and an ancient fortified complex overlooking the red square and the river.

Moscow is right on top of my bucket list and I have heard a lot of interesting things about it – this is the great thing about working in hospitality – meeting people from all over world. I hope this picture makes you hungry to visit Moscow as well.
