The stunning Cathedral is located on the southwest side of Cathedral Square inside the Kremlin in Russia, where it directly connects to the main buildings of the Grand Kremlin Palace, adjacent to the Palace of Facets. It was originally the personal chapel for Moscows tsars, The abbot from the Cathedral remained a personal confessor of the Russian royal family until 1917. The opportunity to have visited this exquisite Cathedral was terrific! Благовещенский собор является действительно красивая русская православная церковь, посвященная Благовещенского (христианским празднованием объявления ангел Гавриил к Деве Марии, что она зачнет и стать матерью Иисуса, Сына Божия) Божией Матери ( титул Марии, матери Иисуса, особенно используется в восточном христианстве). Ошеломляющий собор расположен на юго-западной стороне Соборной площади в Кремле в России, где он напрямую соединяется с основными зданиями Большого Кремлевского дворца, рядом с Грановитой. Первоначально она была личная часовня для Moscows царей, Настоятель от собора остался личный духовник русской царской семьи до 1917 года возможность посетили этот изысканный собор был потрясающим! Die Kathedrale der Verkündigung ist eine wirklich schöne russisch-orthodoxen Kirche zur Verkündigung (Christian Feier der Ankündigung durch den Engel Gabriel an die Jungfrau Maria, dass sie die Mutter von Jesus empfangen und werden würde, der Sohn Gottes) gewidmet von der Gottesgebärerin ( ein Titel von Maria, der Mutter Jesu, die vor allem in östlichen Christentums). Die beeindruckende Kathedrale befindet sich in Russland im Kreml auf der südwestlichen Seite der Domplatz, wo es eine direkte Verbindung zu den wichtigsten Bauten des Grand Kremlin Palace, direkt neben dem Palast der Facetten. Es war ursprünglich die persönliche Kapelle für Moscows tsars, der Abt von der Kathedrale blieb eine persönliche Beichtvater der russischen Königsfamilie bis 1917 die Möglichkeit haben, diese exquisite Dom besucht war grandios! La cathédrale de l'Annonciation est une très belle église orthodoxe russe dédiée à l'Annonciation (fête chrétienne de l'annonce faite par l'ange Gabriel à la Vierge Marie qu'elle concevrait et devenir la mère de Jésus, le Fils de Dieu) de la Théotokos ( un titre de Marie, mère de Jésus, utilisé notamment dans le christianisme oriental). La magnifique cathédrale est située sur le côté sud-ouest de la place de la cathédrale à l'intérieur du Kremlin en Russie, où il se connecte directement aux principaux bâtiments du Grand Palais du Kremlin, à côté du Palais de Facets. Il était à l'origine la chapelle personnelle pour tsars Moscows, L'abbé de la cathédrale est restée un confesseur personnel de la famille royale russe jusqu'en 1917. L'occasion d'avoir visité cette cathédrale exquise a été formidable!
