St. Basil's Cathedral (Pokrovsky Cathedral)

St. Basil’s Cathedral (Pokrovsky Cathedral) on the Red Square is a great creation of Russian architects. It was founded in the middle of the 16th century to commemorate the accession of Khanate of Kazan to the Moscow Kingdom and is considered unequalled. The gorgeous temple is a gem of world architecture, a symbol of Moscow and Russia. Today Pokrovsky Cathedral is both museum and temple. The Russian Orthodox Church holds public liturgies here on Sundays at 10 am.

There is a legend that when the tsar (king) Ivan the Terrible saw the cathedral of such an amazing beauty, he ordered to blind the masters, so that they were unable to repeat their masterpiece.

Please note!

To get into the St. Basil’s Cathedral without losing your precious time, show your Moscow CityPass plastic card to the staff of the Museum on the way to the ticket offices.

When the temperature is below -15 degrees Celsius – the Museum shortens its working hours.
