Restoring a Red Square Icon
BBC Moscow correspondent
Ever since it was built by Ivan the Terrible, St Basil's Cathedral with its host of multi-colored domes has been one of the most recognizable buildings in all of Russia. Today it is covered with green dust-netting. Builders shout to each other, as they winch materials to the top of one of St Basil's towers. 'It's like a visual icon of Red Square. I think it's beautiful,' says an American tourist gazing up at the building.
A three-year restoration project on the cathedral's exterior is just coming to an end. But inside, the walls — built over 400 years ago — are slowly cracking. There are fears Russia is in danger of losing its most famous landmark. If you walk up the dark and narrow staircase in the centre of St Basil's, you emerge in one of the nine separate chapels inside the building. The walls are covered in old paintings and frescoes. But long cracks run through the brickwork. A report commissioned by the Russian Government has said the cathedral is slowly sinking into the ground and cracking apart. It warns St Basil's could fall into ruin if its foundations are not strengthened.
The earth under the cathedral is more solid in some places than others. As a result the cathedral has settled unevenly over the years. So that's why there are these cracks.
The use of Red Square for huge public events has also helped weaken St Basil's foundations. During the Soviet years massive military parades were held here. Squadrons of tanks and missiles launchers would grind their way past the cathedral. In more recent years it has been used as the venue for rock concerts by the likes of Paul McCartney.
'When tanks used to cross Red Square we could feel everything shake,' says Igor Mitichkin, the man responsible for the upkeep of all the monuments around the Kremlin.
'Thank God there aren't tanks any more. Gun salutes don't really have any effect on the buildings. But rock concerts, if they are too loud, they do.'
But undoubtedly St Basil's will be standing as a symbol of Russia for centuries to come.
