  • It is said that Peter the great decided to build this church instead of a pre-existing that unfortunately it was badly damaged by the frequent flooding of Moskva and that, for this reason, chose an area higher and better protected. He inspired the architect with some designs. The project was completed in about 1715 and only many years later, in 1758 was the fence. Fate had an eye for this Church since it is one of the few that were not closed by bolshevichi and indeed, many relics and vestments from other religious buildings destroyed by the Soviet Government, they found a safe haven right in between these walls. Easily accessible by Metro, bus stop Oktiabrskaya, this church is considered one of the finest achievements in the Muscovite Baroque style and is a pleasant oasis of peace within walking distance from the noisy Yakimansky/Leninsky Prospekt.

  • Located in a main thoroughfare of Moscow... I find this church more cocoon than others. It's quite dark inside.

  • The year 1908 flood washed away the Church. During the construction of the temple grounds Dimitrov Street cut, fence and gate moved. Beautiful temple pleases the eye, Jakimanki decoration.

Where to stay in Moscow

The capital of Russia and a huge metropolis, Moscow offers a plethora of different types of accommodations. Many renowned hotel chains are represented in the city, and some of its hotels rank among the world's most luxurious and expensive. Those traveling on a more modest budget can choose among the boutique or Soviet-era hotels. There are also numerous hostels and short-term rental apartments throughout the city. When choosing a place to stay, especially if you're only planning for a short visit, always bear in mind the size of Moscow. Staying too far from the center might mean that the precious time you could spend on sightseeing will be wasted in traffic and transport.
