Additional Information

Introduction

One of the architectural wonders of the world, The Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, is truly an amazing sight to behold for any lover of architecture. The Cathedral was built in the mid 1800s, but the Soviets destroyed the building in 1931 when they were taking over Moscow. Through a labor of love the Cathedral was rebuilt and was reopened in 2000. The Cathedrial stands out in Moscow with its massive golden domes and towering marble and granite columns. The Cathedrial is also adorned with icons from the Orthodox Russian faith which includes mosaics and other extremely impressive pieces of art.
