It is a Russian Orthodox church. It is here that princes were crowned. Do not miss the splendid arched south portal and the Monomakh Throne, the royal seat of Ivan the Terrible. Marvel at the multi-tier iconostasis. The walls were gilded to give a golden...More

From 1547 until 1896 this is where Russian Monarchs were crowned. Both its entrance facade and interior are richly decorated with frescoes. The huge iconastasis features many treasured icons.

It’s okay but churches here are not like the large catholic and Anglican cathedrals I’ve visited in other cities. It’s an important historical church. It’s part of Cathedral Square in the Kremlin. It doesn’t take long to see, maybe a half hour.

This gorgeous Cathedral is the place that the Tzars were coronated for hundreds of years. The walls and ceilings of the church are magnificent. Watch out for pick pockets. As you're looking up, they are looking for your valuables!
