Moscow Church Of Christ, Moscow Reviews
Incredible must-see. So much history in this space. To see where it is today is a testament to grit and determination. Visit this place. Bit of advice... Make certain you dress appropriately or they will not let you inside.
The cathedral is definitely a historical and cultural landmark. Some may say that there is a lack of spirituality since the place is new, but I dare say that the cathedral itself exists without connecting with time in the pure secular and scholarly sense.
I haven't been inside, but it looks amazing from outside 😍
Following the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the current church was rebuilt on the site during 1995–2000. After a Century. In February 1990, the Russian Orthodox Church received permission from the Soviet Government to rebuild the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour. A temporary cornerstone was laid by the end of the year. The architect Aleksey Denisov was called upon to design a replica, which was of extraordinary accuracy. A construction fund was initiated in 1992 and funds began to pour in from ordinary citizens in the autumn of 1994. In this year the pool was demolished and the cathedral reconstruction commenced. In 2000 the cathedral was the venue for the Canonization of the Romanovs when the last Tsar Nicholas II and his family were glorified as saints.
Impressive, huge building but feels somewhat cold and unfriendly, maybe the modern style and the fence around. For some reason roads were closed here, I was not able to get close to the church, let alone visit it... maybe next time. The interior may change my rating at a later time.
