St Basil's by aGiantSquid St Basil's by aGiantSquid
St Basil's Cathedral, known officially as The Cathedral of Intercession of Theotokos on the Moat (the Russians love their cathedral names). This was the first time I'd seen it, on a very wet summer's day in Moscow. Well worth the soaking though.

Such a lovely shot, you really captured the details of the architecure. Such a beautiful cathedral; I'll be in Russia in less than two years time and I'm making sure that St. Basil's is on the to-see-list c: Thanks for posting this photo; almost every other one I've seen online is taken from so far back that small details are hard to make out. Again, this is a breathtaking shot- kudos!

Usually, people know it as St Basil's Cathedral though it's not the official name XD But you'll find tons of pictures and info by that name ^^

Fantastic place. Far too much there to see and do, and the people are mainly friendly and helpful. Nothing like what we see on TV over here. Kind of have to know the language a bit though, because nobody really speaks English there (whereas in St Petersburg, almost everyone knows some).

And thanks very much for the adds!

Thanks! Wish I could take credit for building them though. So many different designs over there. Cathedrals that look like this, some that are completely gold-leafed, some of the purest white marble. And some looking like a displaced Greek temple.

(ha ha ha that made me laugh but careful with your comments: not everyone is a Hetalia fan and there may be misunderstanding or even people who can be offended, and for good reasons! I hope you understand what I mean ^^ The context of this picture is not Hetalia related and Prussia isnīt even a country anymore, so it may be really confusing for the author ^^)

True, thanks for catching that for me!! ^^; I naturally go into Hetalia mode now about countries! Plus the picture was posted in 2 Hetalia groups...Thanks again!

I know, I am the founder of both groups and the one who requested the pic to be in the groups XD and Iīve had bad experiences when it comes to pictures by non-hetalia-fan authors submitted in Hetalia groups, so I would like to help raising the "take into consideraiton the context" awareness among Hetalia fans ^^ we donīt want people to think we are some crazy kids, do we? XD

Well of course I am not talking about your comment because it doesnīt have anything too confusing or that could be taken "the wrong way" (yeah, you know that happens a lot in Hetalia xD) But since I noticed people was starting to get into "hetalia mode", I thought I would better go ahead and say that this author probably has no idea what Hetalia is, so we should be sensitive about our Hetalia comments ^^ heīs sharing his work with us, so letīs be "mature" about the matter, if you know what I mean ^^

Okay. XD Yeah, that might be smart...^^; And true, though I AM crazy/flat out insane sometimes...oh well, that's beside the point!
Thankfully, OI! Let's see here *starts mental list of messed up things in Hetalia...* And okay! ^^ Yup!

Ahhh, don't worry, did a bit of reading up on the topic last night, which was pretty fun. Was discussing cultural stereotypes with friends a week or two ago and it's amazing just how much of what's included in Hetalia conforms to it (and also just how much of it is true... poor England with his terrible culinary skills... :unimpressed:).

Otherwise, would have just made a stupid IN SOVIET RUSSIA/TEUTONIC PRUSSIA joke...
