The Cathedral of Christ the Saviour. From the  earliest times there was a tradition in Russia to rear chapels, build churches  and erect monasteries as an expression of gratitude to God for bestowing  military victories in wars or decisive battles. The services in these churches  were particularly dedicated to the soldiers who gave their lives afield “for  the Faith and the Motherland". http://www.tourtorussia.com.au/russia/moscow/cathedral-saviour.html

The Red Square has always been the main square of Moscow where heralds announced the Tsar’s decrees and  will to the crowd. On major religious holidays processions from the Kremlin to the Red Square were held and it resembled an open–air church full of people. It was here that the magnificent cathedrals were built. One of them is St. Basil's Cathedral. The cathedral was built in the mid–16th century by Ivan the Terrible  in honour of victories in wars. In 1588 a small, tenth chapel was built  by the cathedral. The Holy Fool;  Basil, as he was known and greatly respected in Moscow, was buried here. Since then, the cathedral has been popularly known as St. Basil’s. St. Basil’s Cathedral is iconic and unique among Moscow’s churches. http://www.tourtorussia.com.au/daytrips/moscow-daytrips.html

From a small defensive fort Moscow came to rule one sixth of the earth's surface with its governance led by Grand Princes, Tsars, Emperors, Soviet General Secretaries and today, Presidents. The very first settlers of the region were believed to be Slavic tribes in the 6th century, before they encountered the Vikings who brought order and assumed power under the chief Rurik. Rurik, the ancestor of all the tsars until the Romanovs took power centuries later, chose the ancient city of Novgorod as his capital but his successor Oleg took Kiev in modern-day Ukraine and made it his own capital. It wasn't until the 12th century and the Mongol invasion that Moscow arose from obscurity and became relevant. The Mongols succeeded, chose Moscow as the supreme state from which to collect tributaries for the next 240 years, leaving them to self-govern. Our Moscow tours will guide you through the historical museums that chronicle the rise of medieval Russia to its present day. http://www.tourtorussia.com.au/russia/moscow/moscow.html
