  • Strolling through Moscow, accidentally came to the temple, and marvelled! Not at all traditional architecture for Christianity. Interested and entered. Immediately struck the Interior. Elegant, something similar to the Kazan Cathedral in St. Petersburg. Then read about shrines and architect. I advise you to visit. Not even devout people.

  • I was recently in the Church of St. Martin and remembered this day-transparent and delicate as watercolor. Saw Church such a bright, lively and familiar, came and stayed in the service. Kowtow to all who restored the Church, helps, t and serves the Church. 25 years ago I was close by, alas, everything was in ruins, and I wanted to go find out. And here after so many years such a gift. -

  • This Temple stands out and distinguishes itself from other churches in the district as its architecture, and the title, you'd think that he'd rather Catholic. I advise you to read about him on Wikipedia. But be sure to visit it. Welcome all here, it is spacious and breathe it very easily. The rest will see themselves:)

  • The exact time of the construction of the stone church at this location is unknown — presumably the year 1502, in memory of Vasily III's blessing to date great board what happened April 14 year 1502 — commemoration day of St. Martin the Confessor, Pope (d. 655). Ivan Snegiryov believes that the Church was built in the year 1492. The first archival reference to the building belongs to the year 1625. In 1780 year Moscow visited the Austrian Emperor Joseph II, had taken European educated Metropolitan Platon of Moscow. Bishop not only showed the kingly guest city but also has on it an indelible personal impression, so Joseph on the question of Catherine named Plato main Moscow landmark. Shortly after the departure of the Emperor next to an old church, the new building was laid. However, the construction of the temple was begun only in the year 1791, when money for its construction gave rich Moscow chaetorgovec (future mayor) Vasiliy Yakovlevich Zhigarev. The project was commissioned by the architect Kazakov Proposed. In the year 1792 Plato blessed the start of construction, and in 1806 year consecrated the throne of a new temple. In the Church of St. Martin the Confessor was the first letter of the divine service after leaving the French in Moscow in the year 1812. Emperor Alexander I seemed placed to the left and right of the Royal doors.
