Tower of Kazan Cathedral

Tower of Kazan Cathedral

The original Kazan Cathedral was built in 1636 with money donated by Prince Dmitry Pozharsky in honor of the miracle - working Kazan icon of the mother of God .
Unfortunately, like a lot of the churches in Moscow, the Cathedral was destroyed by the Bolsheviks, ironically on the very same day in 1936 that the church was meant to celebrate its 300th anniversary. The church was reconstructed in 1993 on the celebration day of the Icon of Kazan and has been hosting regular services ever since.
Today, Kazan Cathedral boasts a pink and white exterior replete with the ornate window frames and gables characteristic of early Muscovite church architecture, and crowned by a cluster of green and gold domes.

As part of background research for a new novel, I needed someone to take me around to the sites in Moscow where some of the events in the story takes Place.

Arthur proved an excellent choice. Nor only does he know his way around Moscow, he also willingly shares his vast knowledge of the city's past. Furtheremore, Arthus is a very nice guy to spend a day with!
