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.

The semi-circular Kazan Cathedral, with a church dome behind the colonnade, a fountain in the square in front of the church, and two memorial statues of the Russian commander.
Into the dark church where you can visit for free, take off your hat and can't take pictures. Here you can feel the sacredness of religion.
Just a lot of people prayed that day, especially piously standing together to sing hymns, the hymns sang in the mouth of the believers kept echoing inside the church, the sense of sacredness was awe-inspiring. There is a river next to the
Kazan Cathedral. Walk along the river to the opposite street and see the Cathedral of the Savior on Spilled Blood.

Kazan Cathedral, located on Nevsky Prospekt in St. Petersburg, is the largest church in St. Petersburg. It was built in 1801 and is still in use today. This church was built to store the Russian Orthodox sacred object, The Madonna of Kazan. The tomb of General Kutuzov is also in the church. The
church is based on the ancient St. Peter's Church. It has been built over 10 years and is characterized by a 94-circular semicircular cloister.
The reason why the "Kazan Madonna" is enshrined is because the Kazan Madonian was said to have appeared during the Russian-French war. Marshal Kutuzov prayed before the anti-attack to the Virgin of Kazan. The Madonna dreams that Kutuzov will have never had a cold current. This cold current caused the Napoleon Bonaparte army to flee and die halfway, and all No fighting power, making Kutuzov a success. In 1813, the Russian military commander Kutuzov, who had defeated the French army by the Virgin Mary, was buried in the church. The flag and helmet captured by the French army from the French army smashed the general's heroic achievements.
