St. Basil's Cathedral. Built in 1555-60 on the order of Ivan the Terrible to celebrate victory over the Tartars. This Russian Orthodox church sits among many iconic Russian sites on Red Square.
Most of the photos are of Red Square taken on a bright summer day. On a cool rainy day I visited the Novodevichy Cemetery (New Maiden) Cemetery where great Russians are buried.
