  • Chapel consecrated August 6, 1997 year, Patriarch of Moscow and all Russia Alexy II. Built on the site of the destroyed by the Bolsheviks in the 30-ies of the last century the Church of Tikhon Amafuntskogo and in memory of herself next, also on Arbat square, the Church of Boris and Gleb, known since the year 1483, and destroyed the same "builders of a new future" in 1930 year ... Now the chapel gives recognizable kind of Arbat square and also recognizable looks on the background of the Russian Defense Ministry compound.

  • When you walk from Arbat Gates square, you'll see this Chapel behind Russian birches. And we decided to go to the Shrine-Chapel of St. Blessed Martyrs Boris and Gleb. Small inside (3 x 3), but clean and bright Chapel in stone the wilds of the city centre. In front of the Golden iconostasis from the human will force three to four. Interestingly, right installed icon of St. righteous Warrior Feodor Ushakov.

  • The interesting history of this Chapel, rather its prehistory. As the temple was built in 15 century as destroyed, as this place has emerged a chapel. It is a pity that so changed the appearance of the Arbat square, so mercilessly destroyed our history and architecture. Against the backdrop of the Ministry of the chapel look very finely, but great that it still is!
