Visiting the gorgeously beautiful cathedral of St. Basil with a tour is a dream of every first time visitor to Moscow. The ornate cathedral with multicolor cupolas standing on the Red Square is one of the main attractions of the capital. The tour of the Intercession cathedral will give you the opportunity to enjoy the brilliant creation of the Italian or Russian architects of the 16th century.
An English speaking guide in Moscow will tell you about the impressive history of the Cathedral built upon the order of Ivan the Terrible after the capture of Kazan. The victory took place on the day of Intercession of the holy Virgin, so the cathedral was named Intercession Church-on-the-moat. The foundation stone for the cathedral was laid on the spot where a small church with relics of Basil the Blessed used to stand. Basil the Blessed was the “God's fool” worshiped by the Orthodox Christians. His memory turned out to be so strong and long-lasting that the Intercession Cathedral is more often called by the name of this respected saint.
