The history and paintings in this Amazing building. It is a place of peace and quiet. The unfortunate part is that is not a place for anyone handicapped.

A must see on your visit to Moscow. Brilliant architecture, unbelievable paintings and information on some of the religious history of the country.

Old and cramped, fantastic to look at from outside but it was a bit disappointing for me since I was expecting the same grandiose in the inside and shocked to find it pretty simplistic in style. An overall nice cathedral still.

Looks like a candy. The most colourful and artistic building in Moscow. It's a treat and seeing the roof from afar made smile. Highly recommended!

Beautiful to look at day and night. Stands out as so different to the rest of the architecture in Moscow.
