  • It is one of the three cathedrals of the Kremlin, built in the 14th century. At the Sobornaya square, are the Cathedral of the Archangel Michael, the Cathedral of the Dormision or Ascension and the Cathedral of the Annunciation. This Cathedral is striking. Its huge white facade crowned with nine Domes with a gold crucifix made one is with hard neck from looking at it. The iconostasis is one of the best I saw countless cathedrals of Orthodox Rite I know. No more words

  • One of my favorite. Awesome little chapel. You can feel the history in every niche in this place.
  • Great architectural and historical Orthodox Church with many icons on the walls.
  • A little gem, I think this is the oldest, you will see beautiful inner decoration. I don't think photography is permitted.
