  • A very beautiful Cathedral, built in honour of the arrival in Kazan Peter i. called "gingerbread". It is the highest Temple of Kazan, height as the Cathedral and Bell Tower is 52 meters! The narrow surrounding streets and modest churchyard create a feeling these Cathedral. Decorated in Baroque style. Gorgeous decor, very many diverse parts. Definitely worth a visit!

  • My most any place in Kazan! Amazing building: unusual "flower" wall decoration creates a very positive mood. With the high front porch with beautiful views of the city. Inside contrast all solemnly and even a little gloomy. Very high iconostasis. Inside the Cathedral are just blagogoveeš′. Most interestingly, despite the height of the building you won't notice it until you approach close.
