  • An unusual Cathedral, in the style of Petrine era a bit. You need to climb up the ladder. Inside a very izukrashennye interiors. Remember visiting the Cathedral was visited by famous faces of the State, many of our emperors. In the Choir sang Shalyapin. Near a beautiful bell tower.

  • The Cathedral is worthy of attention. Very interesting ornament adorns the façade. You need to plan a visit to the assumption that evening service starts at 17.00.

  • 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.
