If you’ve seen photos of Moscow, you’ve probably seen a picture of the colorful domes of St Basil’s Cathedral. Officially named The Cathedral of Vasily the Blessed and part of the State Historical Museum, you’ll find it in Red Square, where it’s come to be a symbol of not just Moscow, but all of Russia. The cathedral was completed in 1561 on orders from Ivan the Terrible and it’s been one of the most unique examples of Russian architecture ever since - it’s an absolute must-see for anyone visiting Moscow!
