Kremlin’s Assumption Cathederal, c. 1475 ad, is the oldest of the Kremlin’s four churches.  Built by Italian architect Alberti Fioravanti who was invited to Moscow by Zsar Ivan the Terrible.  The Zsar liked it so much that he refused to let the architect return home and he would later die still in captivity in Moscow.
