Last year we went for a visit relatives,friends back in my home country-Russia. Surprisingly to me,the July's weather in Moscow was not really good summer kind-rain,cloudy,cold. This photo is one of the few that weather allowed to take relatively not bad picture...
This is Moscow river transit / tourist boat that anyone can take and have a trip along the river, watching Kremlin complex, Kremlin quay, taking photos of the interesting places along the trip.
Just behind the Kremlin Wall one can see former Government of Russia building ( now it is part of Kremlin museum complex) and one of the Kremlin churches which forms a wonderful historical,architectural and cultural centre. There are many museums on the Kremlin territory which are worth to visit while being in Moscow ( National Diamond Fund, Hall of Facets, Historical museum, Armoury Chamber... ). An official name for the complex is National Historical Museum "Moscow Kremlin".
For much more interesting information,please, see

The framing is a bit tight,but I like the composition with the ferry in front of the Kremlin.

Хорошая фотка! Редко с этого ракурса снимают эти места.
А насчет православной архитектуры - все верно, но Василий Блаженный это, по-моему, очень неправославная архитектура, а отражение личности Ивашки Грозного, во всей ее странности.

Nice composition of the boat together with the great buildings in the background.
I only woould have liked some more space to the right of the photo to give the boat some more room as well as to see more of the interesting towers in the background.
