We took a tour of several metro stations in Moscow.
Then we went to visit the Tretiakov Gallery. Afternoon was free time, we walked along Arbat street then back to the Metropol Hotel, and went inside the St Basil's Cathedral. It was really interesting because each dome we saw was really aa separate little church, which eventually combined to become what we saw today. It was like a maze inside. We went up the tallest and steepest stairs in a small stairwell to get to the first level where most churches were, and had to find out way around the various hallways to make sure we saw all the churches. It was kind of fun. We also caught another singing in one of the churches.
For dinner we went to a Georgian restaurant, which had live entertainment of music and dancing I assume in the Georgian style. The food was good but not super. We had a crazy taxi taking us back to the hotel. Afterwards, we took another walk to the Red Square to see it at night.
Here is a video of the dancing at the Georgian restaurant.
