  • Hit the Cathedral for the evening service at parent Saturday November. Enchanted voices, internal and external decoration. High staircase leads to the entrance, is very high. There's something Grand. Night, Blizzard, snow-covered steps. Long did not want to leave. History of the Cathedral is known, you can read about it on the Internet. Read-you will not regret. Beautiful Orthodox Cathedral in the heart of Kazan.

  • 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.
