Built in the early 1800s to duplicate the Vatican's Basilica of St. Peter, this huge cathedral served as a monument to Russia's victory over Napoleon in the War of 1812 and today houses the Museum of Religion.

This is a fantastic cathedral. If you are up to climbing 300 stairs, the view from the top is fantastic- you can see the entire city. The bronze doors are amazing. An architectural feat.

The church is very beautiful inside and outside. There are several granite columns inside the church. It is free to go inside but you can not take pictures.

The best place to get the panoramic view from this cathedral is Singer cafe which is located in front of this place. You can easily rest in a mini park next to Kazan cathedral.
