Very interesting discovery of this nice church, with a beautiful view on Kazan and externally decorated with nice paintings and colors. Inside a classical Orthodox Church with nice golden icons and decorations.

We have been to a lot of churches in Russia. This church is really a special one. From the architecture, we can see those small details on the wall, windows, pillars. The color is soft and gentle. There are two churches in the building. They have very different color tone inside both churches. Take some time and walk around. Worth... More

What a charming place to visit. Very stunning inside dating back to the 1500's. Make sure you don't don't talk too loud with the acoustics.

Not what you expect from a cathedral, it's really just a church, be it a nice one. Unfortunately its surroundings are not so nice, no garden, ugly parking lot and neighbouring buildings. Okay for a quick visit on your way back from the Kremlin.

This is a beautiful cathedral from the outside and the view from the entrance of the city of Kazan is amazing! It's on somewhat of a hilltop and you need to cilmb a few staircases to get to the entrance, so you can see the Volga River and surrounding rooftops by the time you're at the top. Very much recommended!... More

Major church for the city, remember this is a working and living place of worship, a beautiful place of devotion.

I m not a fan of churches. But this one is "cozy" and quiet. Different than the others. But it s nothing special Besides its architecture.
