Floto by Gilbert H. Grosvenor THE CATHEDRAL OF ST. BASIL'S: MOSCOW St. Basil's is remarkable for its bizarre outlines and the gaudy color of its exterior. The interior is very disappointing, being divided into eleven small and gloomy chapels, which resemble dungeons. In this they are unlike the typical Russian church, which is elaborately adorned in gold and other rich colors.
