Saint Basil's cathedral
 
Map
 
The marvelous St. Basil's cathe-dral was built by Ivan the Terrible in the 16th century. After the construction, the unfortunate con-structor Posnik Jakowlejew was blinded by the tsar, because he answered the question, whether he could build an even more beautiful cathedral, with yes! The cathedral is indeed still unique in the world. A total of nine chur-ches huddle under the shared roof with nine onion-shaped domes. Even services are being celebrated again in the churches.
