"Red Square's Famous Landmark"
Possibly the most widely-recognized of Russia's architectural monuments, St. Basil's looms at the southern end of Red Square (Krasnaia Ploshchad') in all its multi-colored, multi-coned glory. The cathedral's real name is the Cathedral of the Intercession. It was built between 1555 and 1561 to commemorate the victory of Ivan the Terrible over the Tatars in Kazan. The cathedral was built near the grave of the so-called, “holy fool”, St. Basil the Blessed, hence its popular and widely-used name.
