The State Historical Museum of Russia is wedged between Red Square and Manege Square in Moscow. The present structure was built based on Sherwood's neo-Russian design between 1875 and 1881. The first 11 exhibit halls officially opened in 1883 during a visit from the Tsar and his wife Then in 1894 Tsar Alexander III became the honorary president of the museum and the following year, 1895, the museum was renamed the Tsar Alexander III Imperial Russian History Museum Its interiors were intricately decorated in the Russian Revival style by such artists as Viktor Vasnetsov, Henrik Semiradsky, and Ivan Aivazovsky.

Great detailed view of this richly decorated facade with nothing but red and white. There's a pleasant sunlight too.

I like how you positioned your shot as to show all the structural and architecture details of this museum in a very tight symmetry. The light is just wonderful.
Have a nice evening,
