So let's start from the heart of Russia – Red square. It's name came from the Russian word krasnaya (красная), which means either "red" or "beautiful". This word, with the meaning "beautiful", was originally applied to Saint Basil's Cathedral and was subsequently transferred to the nearby square.

The Cathedral of the Protection of Most Holy Theotokos on the Moat, known as Saint Basil's Cathedral, looks like dollhouse.

Legend held that Ivan IV blinded the architect so that he could not recreate the masterpiece elsewhere.
