   The St. Basil’s Cathedral is one of the most popular landmarks of
Moscow. This distinctive Orthodox Church is situated in the Red
Square. Several travel packages to Russia would explore visits to the
Red Square, the Tomb of Lenin, and the famous Cathedral.
   Due to its matchless design, and marvelous ornaments, the St. Basil's
Cathedral in Russia was included in the UNESCO World Heritage sites.
Another interesting fact about this astonishing establishment is that it
was constructed to honor the battles won by Ivan, who was nicknamed
as Ivan the Terrible around the middle of the 16 th century.
   The remarkable central nave is surrounded by nine chapels. Four of
these chapels are supposedly built in the route between heaven and
earth. The cathedral never obtained its unique bright colored exterior
except at the beginning of the 17 th century. Today, many travelers who
enjoy their holiday in Russia visit the cathedral as part of their tours.
