St Basil's Cathedral 3-D Jigsaw

St Basil’s Cathedral 3-D Jigsaw

I was recently offered my choice of gift from Museum Selection which is a most excellent website if you are looking for interesting and unusual Christmas gifts.

The thing that really caught my eye was this St Basil’s 3-D Jigsaw (RRP £27.99) because St Basil’s Cathedral has fascinated me ever since I saw it featured in the Pet Shop Boys ‘Go West’ video.

Last weekend, I spent a very enjoyable few hours constructing all the sections with my 9 year old niece, who is really good at this kind of thing. My brother-in-law helped too by putting it all together at the end.

The end result looks fab and very Christmassy! One day, I’ll get chance to go and see the real thing.

    How cool is that. I went to Moscow on a uni trip, a very very long time ago. One of many highlights was seeing St Basil’s… I had been to the Ukraine a couple of years previously but this time we went to Moscow and St Petersburg. Was Gorbachev’s era, and the rouble had just been devalued, and goodness, the black market was a force of nature. A different time…

      It was great fun putting this together! Very cool that you’ve visited the real St Basil’s.
