I have seen St Basil once it was well worth the visit that one man stood up to Starlin and said no to demolishing speaks volumes for the human spirit!

Marie, thank you! Yes, that Soviet architect who defended the cathedral was like a Chinese in the Xiamen Square in front of the tank. We are proud today, both for having such a monument being built in Russia and for having the Russian people defend it. Thanks for sharing the story!

RIANovosti has a great panoramic virtual tour of St Basil's interior. Don't need to know Russian to do the tour - just click on the icon ( ) in bottom left corner of the image of St Basils to open the map and then click on any of the numbered links to tour those areas of the Cathedral. To get to the website, google " ".
