The Cathedral of Vasily the Blessed
The Cathedral of Vasily the Blessed is the most famous church in Russia, its onion top rooftops composed of 9 different shapes and colors is world famous, and may be said to be a landmark building in the Kremlin and Red Square area. Here the delicate and outstanding architectural artistry of this Eastern Orthodox church appears in vivid detail, and is now part of the national historical museum. Inside there are many wall paintings worthy of admiration of Eastern European peoples from around the 16th Century.
The church was constructed at the end of the 16th century, in order to commemorate the pacification of Kazan Khanate by Ivan the Terrible. It is said that Ivan the Terrible ordered the architect to be blinded, so that he would never make a building more beautiful than this one. This story discredits Ivan the Terrible while at the same time paradoxically reflecting the great beauty of the church.
St. Basil’s cathedral is composed of a series of small churches. At a glance they form a tangled maze, but in fact they have a regular organization: at the center of each church there is a lofty tower with a high arched roof, with a height of around 47 meters. The drum shaped dome is golden and shining, and the beam-shaped cylindrical tower is inlaid with niches on upper levels, and on lower levels has a row of high oval windows. Surrounded by 4 large chapels with octagonal towers, the roof is adorned with a huge “Onion Head” dome. Diagonally, between the 4 towers, there are 4 small chapels. The front doors of the 8 towers all face the winding corridor of the central church, and in all directions the outside of the church is surrounded by corridors and stairways.
The colors of the onion head domes are magnificent, scintillating in the sunlight, seeming like a castle out of children’s tales.
