Photographer's Note

Another picture of The St. Basil's Cathedral. No surprise, the church draws attention of majority of the people attending the Krasnaya Plojadi in Moscow. It was built upon the order of Russian Tsar Ivan Groznyj in honour of Kazan capture. A memorial to Dmitry Pozharsky and Kuzma Minin in front of the church was added to the complex later on to mark the battles with Polish troops occuping Russia.

Although one can find the church complex is an aglomeration of styles, it looks gorgeous and beautiful
