Cathedral of Christ the Saviour is the largest Orthodox church in the world, but also one of the largest churches in general. The interior of the church is impressive and rich. From the top there is a beautiful view of Moscow. it's really worth a visit to this place, whether you are faithful or not...
Gorgeous exterior and even more beautiful interior. Pity we couldn't take photos again. The singing through the service was beautiful. Both from the priest and choir who seemed to be in the wings of the church.
One of the most imposing and controversial buildings in Russia, the resurrected Cathedral of Christ the Saviour has had a short but turbulent history. It was originally commissioned after the defeat of Napoleon, but work did not begin on its construction until 1839. Designed by the great St. Petersburg architect Konstantin Ton, who was also responsible for the Grand Kremlin Palace and the Kremlin Armoury and whose church designs pioneered the Byzantine-revival style, the cathedral was erected, for maximum effect, on the embankment only a few minutes' walk from the Kremlin. Sadly, this entailed the destruction of the medieval Alekseevskiy Convent, a course of events which lends an intriguing irony to the cathedral's own fate.
Views inside and from outside are spectacular. The 4 terraces have different views and shouldn't be missed. One can have a full photo session for whole moscow from the place but prepare for the stairs. Don't worry there is 2 elevators that can help.
Beautiful indeed. It closes pretty fast except for Thursday and Sunday.
