Which monument of Russian architecture is the most famous and recognisable in the world? How to get to the Pokrovsky Cathedral? And where did the monument to Minin and Pozharsky used to stand?
To get answers to all these questions, we invite you to watch the RT Documentary film “St Basil’s Cathedral”.
Viewers will also learn in honour of what the cathedral was built, how many churches it actually includes and how Moscow almost lost the cathedral.
This is an RT Documentary film about Cathedral of the Intercession of the Most Holy Theotokos on the Moat, which is best known as St Basil’s Cathedral. The film tells not only about the history of the cathedral’s construction, but also about its “secrets” – how many churches are united, how the main square was almost left without a recognisable attribute, and why the monument to Minin and Pozharsky became adjacent to the cathedral.
