Model of the Intercession Cathedral on the Moat, well-known since the 19th century as St. Basil's Cathedral. You can see within its walls in one of the displays of the world-famous church that now operates as a museum in the present day. The magnificent cathedral was built at Red Square in 1555-1561 under orders of Ivan IV The Terrible, with the blessing of Metropolitan Macarius in honor of the Russian conquest of Kazan and the Kazan Khanate in 1552. The full and final defeat of Tatar troops on their home turf was an inspiration to all Russian people.
