Eastern Orthodox cathedrals in Moskou

Basiliuskatedraal

9.6/10

De Basiliuskatedraal is ien fan de meast ferneamde gebouen fan Moskou en stiet oan it Reade Plein. De bou sette útein yn 1552 yn opdracht fan tsaar Iwan de Ferskriklike en duorre oantenmei 1561. Reden foar de bou wie de oerwinning fan de Russen op de Tartaarske stêd Kasan. De arsjitekt hat nei alle gedachten Posnik Jakowlew west. It ferhaal giet dat him, yn opdracht fan de tsaar, de eagen útstutsen binne om sa foar te kommen dat de arsjitekt ea wer sa'n moai gebou meitsje soe.

Offisjeel hiet it gebou de Maria-Foarspraak(?)Katedraal, mar stiet better bekind as Basiliuskatedraal, nei de "hillige dwaas" Wassili, dy't hjir begroefen leit. It monumint is neffens de tradisjoniele Russyske houtarsjitektuer boud. Net earder as yn 1670 binne de sipelfoarmige koepels beskildere yn ferskate kleuren, dêrfoar wie it gebou wyt mei goudkleurige koepels.

De katedraal is in wichtich plak foar Russysk-Otterdokse leauwenden.

Was founded in 1555 to commemorate the capture of Kazan and Astrakhan. They say that the architect was blinded, so he couldn't create another masterpiece like this one.
