We are all familiar with the exterior of Moscow's St. Basil Cathedral but I've often wondered what the inside looked like. Could it possibly match the drama, the whimsey, the intrigue of the exterior? Recently, I had the opportunity to see—what a pleasant surprise! Each tower consists of a separate, tall and very narrow church, all clustered around a central church and joined by corridors. The interiors have undergone numerous restorations. I found the designs on the walls and ceilings of the corridors to be especially appealing.
