  • The temple is located inside the religious complex of the Petrovsky monastery and although of modest dimensions luce well restored and pleasant view, contrasting its reddish color with black color of the roof-shaped diamond shape. A small door marked by a medallion is its unique front access and only has a dome, which is topped with a golden cross. There is a nameplate which provides some interesting data that the original temple was built between 1514 and 1517 by Italian architect Alevisio Lamberti. Tips of transport in Moscow: preferably use the meter and if you need to take a Taxi never accept payment with measured service (taximeter) already that is very expensive!

  • This magnificent temple is located on the territory of Highly-Petrovsky monastery. Already-not the former, and the existing monastery, since 2009 year the monastery resumed. Saint Peter's Cathedral, Metropolitan of Kiev and Moscow is the Central Temple of the monastery. The modest Cathedral with its architectural decisions, but no less wonderful. And its historical and spiritual significance cannot be overestimated, since virtually all of the Moscow history has passed under the walls of the temple. Because of this our difficult history, the temple was rebuilt four times and was osvyachuvavsya: first time in 1517, the year after construction at the behest of Grand Prince Ivan III architect aleviz Friazin, second time-8 may 1690, in the presence of Peter the great, after the renovation of the temple, third time in 1813 years after the restoration of the temple, destroyed malokul′turnymi French occupiers, fourth-year September 6, 2014 when the Holy Patriarch of Moscow and all Russia Kirill consecration Petrovsky Temple after his recovery at the end of the time of troubles Bolshevik rebellion. Cathedral happened to visit last week, the overall impression: great!
