Anyway, back to Moscow. We visited the Cathedral of Christ the Savior, which is the tallest Christian Orthodox Cathedral in the world at 338 feet. The original 19th century cathedral (that took 40 years to build) was destroyed in 1931 by Stalin to make way for a Soviet Palace that was never built because funds dried up. The new cathedral was started in 1994 ...

Interesting taxi driver, spoke great English and did a sort of guided tour commentary all the way, very interesting.. Wow, what a city, albeit in the dark. Beautiful buildings, very grand and massive and lit up spectacularly. Too late for photos ...
