Image Description: This well-aimed photograph depicts a single tower of the renowned Moscow Kremlin complex in the Russian capital, along with the beautifully crafted minarets of the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour in the background. Lying only a few city blocks from the Kremlin, the Cathedral was built at the behest of Alexander I when Napoleon Bonaparte had finally been driven from Russia, with the main goal being the thanking of Christ for delivering Moscow from the fate suffered by so many of the great Corsican generalâ€™s enemies. Today, it is one of the most visited tourist attractions in Russia, drawing the religious and historically curious alike to its doors every day.
