St Basilís Cathedral, Moscow. Russia.
This easily distinguishable landmark was originally built in 1655 by Ivan The Terrible to mark the capture of Kazan and Astrakhan. At the time, it was the tallest building in Moscow. Originally named Trinity Church, it was later renamed once the tenth church was constructed in 1588 over the grave of St Basil.
The buildings has been crafted around a bonfire flame, burning up to the skies. St Basilís Cathedral is often mistaken for the Kremlin, being in close proximity to it within Red Square. It was listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1990.
