  • Spaso-preobrazhenskiy Cathedral is in the Kremlin, but not part of the museum complex, therefore, is open seven days a week. Cathedral have tight entrance door, unless significant efforts, it might seem that it locked-be insistent! Inside the Cathedral, to the left of the entrance, under the glass floor plot specifically note the visible parts of the old Foundation. Also don't miss the door to the left of the altar: there is a chapel with a poorly preserved frescoes depicted on one of them assassinated Tsarevich Dmitry on stretcher-these litters are still kept in the neighborhood, the Church of Tsarevich Dimitri "on the blood". Where sell candles, for a small donation you can get the keys from the Bell Tower and climb on it to see the district from above. Take the opportunity! Be careful: wood floor in circles, is rotten thoroughly from the stairs to the stairs go along the shortest route, not emerging on the floors. Watch the Bell beat twice per hour, this should be remembered so as not to be frightened by sudden ringing, standing right under the bells. If you go in winter, gently lift the manhole cover on the upper platform: most likely, you overwhelm nametennyj outside snowdrift. It is important! Beside the Cathedral fly swarms lured pigeons taking any human movement intention to treat them. Pigeons are numerous and besceremonny, climb on the fly in the face. Even adults it is unpleasant. For those who come with children, you need to be alert and not release them from themselves, to protect kids and not let them get scared.
