Description:Take a tour of St. Basil's Cathedral in Moscow, Russian Federation – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats.
It looks more like a cluster of brightly colored hot air balloons than a cathedral.
This is St. Basil's, or the "Cathedral of the Intercession of the Virgin By the Moat".

The cathedral was started in 1555 as eight chapels built around a larger ninth.(1:02)
