Description:
    The Cathedral of the Intercession of the Holy Virgin, or St.Basil's Cathedral, was built in 1555 - 1561 to commemorate the victory of the Russians over Kazan Khannate on 1st October 1552. The Russian tzar Ivan the Terrible ordered two Russian architects (Barma and Postnik) to build a monument in honour of the victory, and it is said he had their eyes poked out so that they could never design anything to rival its beauty.
