Moscow Churches and Cathedrals

(Moscow, Central Federal District, Russia)

Picture of the Annunciation Cathedral at the KremlinSome of Moscow's finest examples of period architecture come in the shape of its countless churches and cathedrals. Many of the most impressive include the Annunciation Cathedral within the Kremlin itself, which is famed for its magnificent golden dome and dates back to the latter part of the 15th century. The Annunciation Cathedral resides on Red Square, in the very heart of Moscow, and contains burial chapels for some of the country's Tsars and much-loved princes.

Also housed within the Moscow Kremlin is the Archangel Cathedral, which was built slightly later, at the beginning of the 16th century. The Archangel Cathedral features around 50 different tombs and is a good place to enjoy some old frescoes and Russian art. Without doubt the Kremlin's most important and historic of its four cathedrals is the Cathedral of the Assumption, which was designed by a prominent Italian architect during the 15th century and soon became the main church for the entire Russian state, hosting many spectacularly grand ceremonies, weddings and coronations over the years that followed.
