The largest, oldest and the most important cathedral in the Moscow Kremlin is the Cathedral of the Assumption. An Italian architect named Aristotle Fioravanti (who was commissioned by Ivan III) designed and built the cathedral between 1474 and 1478. After its construction, the cathedral became the primary church of the Russian State and as a result, the site of coronations, victory services, weddings and funerals of Russian monarchs. The cathedral's frescoes and icons are of particular interest.
