To celebrate his victory in Kazan, Ivan the Terrible, Tsar of Russia, ordered an impressive cathedral to be built in Moscow's Red Square. The Cathedral of the Intercession of the Virgin, better known as Saint-Basil-the-Blessed, is a masterpiece of Orthodox architecture. Its multi-colored domes have become the emblem of Orthodox Russia and it is one of the most visited monuments in Moscow.
