St' Basil's Cathedral
It was built in the 16th century by master-builders Barma and Postnik. The
unusual architectural design of the St' Basil's Cathedral features nine towers
topped by cupola. According to the legend, Tsar Ivan the Terrible ordered the
architects to be gouged out in order to prevent the masters from building another
architectural marvel .
