  • I can't tell you which is the most beautiful churches in the square of the Cathedral, within the Kremlin. Each Church that we were going to visit, our guide we spoke before, its history, its construction, its celebrations. So when we went in to visit, in addition to the story, there was the impact by so much beauty. This, the Annunciation, has worked with walls. On the outside they are somewhat similar to its golden domes. Photography is not permitted inside the churches. But at the entrance there are flyers with pictures of the Church in colors and explanations in several languages. Of course in not Portuguese.
