Today is the 450th Anniversary of St Basil's Cathedral


St. Basil's Cathedral is the show palace of Moscow. Ivan the Terrible had it built. I heard afer it was completed he asked the designers could they build another one just as beautiful and they said no problem, so he had them blinded so St Basil's was a one of a kind. Wasn't Ivan Terrible?

I just read on Google that bllinding business is just folklore, it never happened.
