Beautiful colorful onion domes of the famous St. Basil's Cathedral in the Red Square.

The St. Basil's Cathedral is the world known Russian architecture masterpiece. It was built in 1561 to celebrate Russian victory over Kazan kingdom. The architects built 8 small churches around the main dome and made the paths from one church to another. Every church is devoted to a separate saint. The cathedral was being rebuilt over and over, so what you see now is in fact about 200 years old.
