The Kazansky Cathedral

The Kazansky Cathedral

On the Red Square, between the State Historical Museum and famous department store named GUM, you can see nowadays a beautiful colorful tiny church named the Kazansky Cathedral.

The Kazansky Cathedral , which has become a symbol of religion revival in Russia, was built in 1630-1633 with money donated by Prince Dmitry Pozharsky (his monument located in front of St. Basil Cathedral) in honor of the miracle-working Kazan icon of the mother of God (protected this city from enemies from Asia, tatars and mongols).

The Cathedral was destroyed during the expansion of Red Square in 1930 (it was almost 300 anniversary of this church)to make room for heavy military vehicles driving through the square. The church was reconstructed at the mid 90s and recently, at the end of 2005, it was repainted (renovated), so that in present time it looks shining and colorful as like brand new.

We are totally satisfied with Arthur's services. We went on the Moscow by night tour with him and he showed us all the wonderful sights and best of all, he was like a personal photographer for us. We have such nice pictures taken by him to give us great memories. We also went on a half day tour of Kremlin grounds, including the military ceremony and then he rushed us to the airport in time for our flight. Of course he is extremely knowledgeable about Moscow and it is the extra bits that he went out of his way to help us with that is really appreciated.
