  • Very beautiful 17 century-old cathedral of the presentation of the icon B.m. vladimirskaya. Very beautiful territory-all with flowers and greenery. And struck a new Cathedral dedicated to the martyrs was specially built to mark the anniversary of the revolution. Who would have thought that the revolution will be celebrated here! Be sure to advise you to go to this temple.

  • The monastery was founded in 1397 by Prince Vasili I in Kuchkovom field in memory of the miraculous events of 26 August the year 1395, when a procession, headed by Bishop Cyprian, met the miraculous image of the Vladimir icon of the mother of God, prinesjonyj of Vladimir-on-Kliazma. A day later, Timur-Tamerlane turned South. Lying defenseless before him Moscow was saved. Initial construction of the monastery didn't make it. Extant five-domed Cathedral of the monastery (the only surviving Church in the 20th century) was built in the year 1679 Tsar Fyodor A.; the southern Chapel of the Nativity of John the Baptist is arranged in the year 1706. Come, explore new temple new martyrs, in the service of the Sretensky Cathedral View Seminary-time will not be wasted!

  • The new church of martyrs and confessors is a "must go" in Moscow. Has one advantage over Christ the Savior, you can take pics. Beautiful place and no far from the metro station. Woman please don't forget this is a religious place, don't use miniskirts or shorts and you must cover your head.
  • Chanting, grace of God
  • Best Orthodox website for news and articles
