About Saint Basils Cathedral

Spectacular by definition, St. Basil's Cathedral is one of the world’s most iconic buildings. It was commissioned by Ivan the Terrible in the 16th century to honour a milestone military victory that saw his army capture Kazan and Astrakhan. Its elaborate design is utterly unique, with no other building on the planet rivalling its eclectic architecture.

While it’s commonly known as St. Basil’s, the famous building is officially called “The Cathedral of the Intercession of the Virgin by the Moat”. It’s quite the mouthful, which led locals to rename it in honour of Basil the Blessed, a "holy fool" who was laid to rest on the site of the old Trinity Cathedral.
St. Basil’s dominates the Red Square skyline and is easily its most famous sight. It’s just a stone’s throw from the Moscow Kremlin and is an easy walk from other major city attractions. The area is well connected by public transport with metro trains, buses, trolleybuses and trams all servicing the Red Square area.

The architectural splendour of St. Basil’s is renowned across the globe, though there’s some debate surrounding what inspired the unique design. Some maintain that it mimics the shape of bonfire flames rising towards the sky, while others assert that the colourful onion domes are a nod to the magnificent churches of Jerusalem. Another theory is that the construction of eight churches around a ninth anchor church represents the symbolic eight-pointed star.
