The famous St. Basil's Cathedral was commissioned by Ivan the Terrible and build on the edge of Red Square between 1555 and 1561. The cathedral was built to commemorate Ivan the Terrible's successful military campaign against the Tatar Mongols in 1552 in the besieged city of Kazan. St. Basil's is a delightful array of swirling colors and redbrick towers. Its design comprises nine individual chapels, each topped with a unique onion dome and each commemorating a victorious assault on the city of Kazan.

Riot of color and shapes that is St Basil's Cathedral is unmatched anywhere else in the world. The French diplomat Marquis de Custine commented that it combines "the scales of a golden fish, the enameled skin of a serpent, the changeful hues of the lizard, the glossy rose and azure of the pigeon's neck" and wondered at "the men who go to worship God in this box of confectionery work."

powerfully eastern design of St. Basil's reflects both its location between Europe and Asia and its historical origins. The interior walls are painted in floral and geometric patterns while serving as a maze of galleries winding from chapel to chapel and level to level via narrow stairways and low arches.
