Cathedral of the Assumption of Moscow Kremlin
Wed - Tue: 10 - 18
The Cathedral of the Assumption (Uspensky in Russian), 1479, architect Aristotele Fioravanti, was the main cathedral in Russia before the Cathedral of Christ the Savior was constructed; it is an example of outstanding work performed by Italian architects in Moscow.
It is one of Moscow’s oldest buildings in terms of preserving its original appearance.
The role of the cathedral in the country’s history is enormous; here, rulers were crowned as czars, and church hierarchs elevated in rank. The church also has one of the oldest necropolises.
