Lobnoye Mesto and St. Basil’s Cathedral in Winter Twilight
Illuminated southern side of Red Square with Lobnoye Mesto and St. Basil’s Cathedral in early cold winter morning after heavy snowfall. Lobnoye Mesto is a rounded high platform in front of the picture. It appeared on Red Square in middle of 16th century and was used for special occasions such as for reading the decrees of the tsars, displaying the relics intended for Kremlin churches or announcing a death sentences on state criminals. The masterpiece of Russian architecture, St. Basil’s Cathedral, was constructed on the Red Square also in middle of 16th century (1555-1561) under orders from Ivan the Terrible in honor of the Russian conquest of Kazan and the Kazan Khanate in 1552.
