St. Basil's Cathedral is probably the most easily recognisable building in Russia. This is the whimsical cathedral which dominates the southwest side of the Red Square. It is a beautiful building and a true must-see attraction in Moscow. Commissioned by Ivan the Terrible and consecrated in 1561, St. Basil's is a collection of nine small chapels clustered together and linked by interior passageways and staircases. The interior is a collection of small chapel rooms twined together and filled with interesting and important historical artefacts, impressive iconostases and colourfully decorated walls and ceilings.
As interesting as it is to spend time within St. Basil's, its exterior is even better. Shaped like a bonfire rising into the sky, this is perhaps one of the more interesting buildings you will see anywhere in the world.

Here you find a red brick structure,with delightful exterior design, similar to what you see with other Russian Orthodox churches. Impossible to miss are the onion shaped domes of the nine different chapels, each uniquely decorated in colour, shape and patterns which playfully clash into a whimsical appearance and appeal, something that children and adults alike can much enjoy seeing.

In the end, St. Basil's Cathedral is spectacular. A visit inside is highly recommendable and seeing the building from the outside is nothing short of remarkable. You really can't visit Moscow and not spend time at the Red Square admiring St. Basil's Cathedral.  (moscow.info)
