The most famous cathedral on the Kremlin's Cathedral Square, the Uspenskiy Cathedral (Cathedral of Assumption), was built in the 1479 by the ingenious italian architect Aristotel Fiorovanti. It has 5 domes, one of them is symbolizing Jesus Christ and the others – the Four Evangelists. It has a beautiful design and it's worth seeing the Cathedral from each side. It was the main temple for crowning of the rulers of Russia (the last ruler who was crowned here in the 1886 was the Emperor Nikolay II) and also it was used for election of Patriarchs of the Russian Orthodox Church and Moscow Metropolitans, and for publicizing the acts of government. Also it's a burial place for Patriarchs of the Russian Orthodox church and Moscow Metropolitans. The Cathedral was badly damaged by the pillage of french soldiers in the 1812 and also in 1917 because of bombardment of Kremlin. Nowadays the Uspenskiy Cathedral is a museum opened for everyone, it stores great collection of icons. Also you can find prayer places of Russian Rulers and the Monomakhov Throne - luxurious golden seat made specially for great Russian Tsar Ivan IV.
