Adjacent to the Kremlin...this place is fascinating. From the gold domes to the 2 churches inside with the ability to seat 10,000 people. Just as impressive on the inside as the outside this is a must see while in Moscow

Very beautiful Orthodox Christian Church having marvellous interiors and wonderful surroundings. One of the tallest Orthodox Church with height of more than 300 feet. Situated south of kremlins and near Mosckva River, it has excellent views from the bridge of river.
