  Cathedral of the Annunciation
by Canadienne

Unlike most of the other Kremlin churches, which were designed by Western Europeans, the Cathedral of the Annunciation was entirely designed and built by Russians. It was originally completed in 148, then substansially modified in 1572, in order to allow Ivan IV acccess to view church services, after he had been banned from the church following his fourth marriage.
