Moscow, Russian Federation

The Cathedral of Intercession of the Virgin on the Moat, The Cathedral of the Protection of the Mother of God, or simply Pokrovskiy Cathedral; better known as the Cathedral of Saint Basil the Blessed , Saint Basil's Cathedral - is a multi-tented church on the Red Square in Moscow that also features distinctive onion domes. It is very often mistaken by Westerners for the Kremlin, whose buildings are in fact situated across the square from the cathedral. Arguably the most recognized building in Russia, it is an international symbol for the nation and for the city of Moscow. (source Wikipedia)
