The Cathedral of Intercession of Theotokos on the Moat, popularly known as Saint Basil’s Cathedral, is a Russian Orthodox cathedral erected on the Red Square in Moscow in 1555–1561.The building’s design, shaped as a flame of a bonfire rising into the sky, has no analogues in Russian architecture: "It is like no other Russian building. Nothing similar can be found in the entire millennium of Byzantine tradition from the fifth to fifteenth century…‘’ is a quote from Wikipaedia. I have shots of this amazing church from every possible angle and it’s beauty on the outside is unsurpassed. This is taken from Red Square – the side images have other extensions

Many thanks to whoever bought a print from me. It is a wonderful church and the colours here are just as depicted. Thank you.

    Stunning structure – a place I have always wanted to visit. Very nicely captured

  • Many, many photos from every angle but this one looked the best – very overcast day. Many thanks.

    What an unusual and amazing structure. I have seen many photos of just the domes but never the entire building. Well done Liz.

  • Have some from the side – I may upload these later – you get a little curve at the length and height though – straight on was a better shot. Thank you very much.

    So intricate and colourful, could have come straight from a fairytale

  • Yes, it could Felicity – this one and the Church of the Spilt Blood in St Petersburg(uploaded ages ago) were similar in many ways- St Basil’s is more colourful though. Thank you
