The Cathedral of the Ascension of Saint Vasili is the symbol of Moscow. It is located at the southern end of Red Square, next to the Kremlin Palace. The church has nine onion-shaped church roofs, which are ingeniously combined by nine connected octagonal towers, and eight lower towers are neatly arranged around the tallest central tower. Every side of the church is positive. The plane of the Western church is a cross of length and breadth. As an Orthodox church, the plane of the church is in the shape of "10". Ivan IV was the first Czar in Russian history (formerly known as Dagong, the ruler of Russia). In the mid-16th century, he launched an expedition to the Khanate of Kazan, and achieved a series of major victories, eventually annexing the Khanate of Kazan. To celebrate the victory, he ordered the church to be built, each dome representing a great victory. These domes are named after some saints, the most famous of which is Saint Vasili (because he predicted that Ivan IV would kill his eldest son Ivan), where Friar Vasili worked hard and eventually died in the church, so people call the whole church Saint Vasili Cathedral of Ascension. When the church was built, the whole world admired its beauty and magnificence. Ivan IV did not want similar churches to appear in other countries, so he ordered all the architects and craftsmen who built it to dig out their eyes so that they could no longer be used by other monarchs. Ivan IV was also charged with "Terrorist Czar" (translated from Chinese as Ivan Ray Emperor) for his brutality. In-house visits require tickets, 500 roubles per person, on the second floor, for about 1 hour and 10 minutes.
Amazing and insipring place. It’s a great pleasure to see this fantastic place. There are not too many visitorsinside so you’ll get full pleasure?
To love a scenic spot that can no longer be loved is closely related to the mood of traveling to Russia to see his photos. Grass was planted. Must go to the place from Chengdu to Moscow in February, the first stop went to several scenic spots near Red Square, which were beautiful and convenient to go when it snowed heavily. Excited and excited, he bought tickets and went inside the church for a visit. I really like onions till they are colorful. It feels good to take pictures in winter and summer.

In 1553-1554, the Cathedral of Saint Vassily was built to commemorate Ivan IV's victory over the Khanate of Kazan. Its main pillar was 57 meters high and was the highest building in Moscow at that time. The Cathedral became the symbol of Russia. Its bright color and onion spire became the model of churches all over Russia, full of fairy tales. Saint Vasili Cathedral is the Russian Orthodox Church, which shows the Russian folk architectural art style in the 16th century. The whole church is ingeniously composed of nine towers, with eight colorful towers on the high base surrounded by the central tower. Very beautiful and representative buildings, as long as they come to Red Square, will not ignore its existence. Just because of the time, I did not enter, only visited the appearance.
The cathedral is worth visiting. The color is very beautiful, and there are many scenic spots around it. It is necessary to go to the cathedral because it is relatively concentrated. Traffic is also convenient, the subway station is nearby, and across the road there is one of Moscow's top shopping malls.
Saint Vasili Cathedral of Ascension (Cathedral of Huacili & Brazene) is located at the southern end of Red Square in downtown Moscow, close to the Kremlin. It is the biggest two points in the whole Red Square area. The colorful onion tower top is dazzling. It's amazing to see the cathedral around us. We didn't buy tickets to visit it. Sitting or standing on the stone floor of Red Square, looking up at the colorful cathedral, is really eye-catching ah!
