Additional Information

Introduction

Originally designed and constructed as a tribute to and place of worship for the Russian Orthodox Church's foremost religious icon, Our Lady of Khazan, Kazansky Sobor remains one of Russia's most important religious and cultural fixtures in the modern era. Construction began in 1801, modelling the cathedral after St. Peter's Basilica in Rome. When Russia's populace attributed victory over invading Napoleon in 1812 to the icon, this church became a symbol of Russia's resilience against invasion. After the Revolution of 1917 forced the church to close, it reopened as the Marxist "Museum of the History of Religion and Atheism." In 1996, the Russian Orthodox Church reclaimed the cathedral.
