I remember the day planned to go to Pushkin Museum and Savior but also hit the road around how not, thinking over the bridge may be able to, but the other side of this bridge stands Savior Cathedral directly. The visual effect is useful to burst! Front of the bridge could take far from the Kremlin while sailing sculpture on the Moscow River. Friends say make the best looking church across the bridge. I was beating up in the garden at the church, I feel pretty good, huh.
The Cathedral of Christ the Savior in Moscow ( ) is located on the west bank of the Moscow River. It was originally built to commemorate the victory of the Napoleonic War in Russia in 1812. It was completed in 1831 and laid the foundation stone eight years later. It is a religious and historical one. The memorial building is the largest Orthodox church in Russia and can accommodate 10,000 people at the same time.
The murals and icon paintings in this church have been carefully crafted to create a sense of space. In addition, solemn murals and iconography depict the victory of the Battle of Napoleon and the Orthodox Church.
Around the huge golden dome, the four golden domes are also very textured, making the whole church exceptionally elegant and quiet, not moving for two hundred years. Even today, when skyscrapers rise up, you can almost see its grandeur in any corner of Moscow. After the
October revolution, the Moscow government blew up this precious ancient building in 1931. It plans to build a 200-meter-high Soviet palace on the spot and the 40-meter-high Lenin statue on the top. Later, I found that there were major problems in design. I had to give up the construction of the Soviet Palace and built an open-air swimming pool in this place. After the disintegration of the Soviet Union, the Moscow government spent six years rebuilding the Cathedral of the Savior for six years in the most difficult economic times in 1994.
Excellent cathedral, marvelous architecture, very impressive inside, but you cannot make any pictures inside. Entrance into cathedral is free and does not require reservations. If you want to go to observation desk, you will need to pay (400 rubles) and walk upstairs (no elevator for visitors). #wintergetaway
The Cathedral of Christ the Savior in Moscow, Russia. One of the landmark in Moscow. What a majestic building. The interior is stunning and it is packed with tourists. This is one of the finest cathedral I have seen. A great place to be. #wintergetaway
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.
