You will most likely see this church if you are on Red Square. We did not enter the building as there was a mass going on when we wanted to go in, but it is beautiful on the outside.

Opposite Kremlin walls, Kazan Cathedral seem small. Walk up the stairs and get in. No fee. A mass was performing with its women choir. So atmospheric. Bought a candle and at tented the mass. Women on the left with their heads covered, men on the right with no hats. The temple is magnificent . The scent from censer and voices... More

I will state that this little cathedral is part of my life as I got engaged to the woman I love there. I cannot think of a more romantic place to do it. The cold of the harsh Russian winter, the candle lit centre of the cathedral, a prayer said and a commitment made. Each time I visit that lovely... More

Our visit to the Kazan Cathedral was excellent. The architecture of the building is beautiful. The wall and column paintings, holy artifacts exhibited and ongoing service was very interesting. I especially enjoyed visiting the resting place of Russian Field Marshall Michail Kutuzov, hero of the Napoleonic Wars, which was also decorated with two captured Napoleonic French eagles and associated French...

I cannot comment on the inside (which is a reproduced chapel, fairly new and said to be very nicely done) - I'd only walked past this, many times, but not known what it was. Kazan Cathedral! As others have said, it sits perfectly at the end of the expansive Red Square, though the real original crown jewel of the Ivan-the-Terrible... More

This is a beautiful replica of the original church that was knocked down by Stalin in one of his bulldozer sessions! However the plans were kept secret and rebuilt later and what a great job they did! It fills a beautiful space on Red Square and is very pretty in its pink colors and makes for a great backdrop. A...

This must be the tiniest cathedral I have ever seen. It's situated at the back left of Red Square as you are facing st Basil's and can't be missed as it is pink! It's very ornate inside, as with all cathedrals in Moscow there are a number of beautiful gold icons, statues, wall paintings etc. Due to the location it... More
