A couple of Orthodox Christian Russians stand in front of St. Basil's Cathedral outside the Kremlin on the Red Square in Moscow, Russia, Friday, July 8, 2011. Russia will celebrate the 450th anniversary of St. Basil's Cathedral by opening an exhibition dedicated to the holy fool who gave his name to Moscow's onion-domed landmark. St. Basil, an eccentric religious fanatic, was one of the very few Muscovites who dared criticize tyrannical Czar Ivan the Terrible. The czar built the cathedral in 1561 to commemorate his victory over Mongol rulers who once dominated Russia, but over the centuries it became known as the place where St. Basil is buried.
