This was the largest and most grand of the Kremlin cathedrals and I enjoyed my time here immensely. The icons and chandeliers were particularly stunning. Admission included with your Kremlin ticket and informational brochures provided free of charge at the entrance. No photos permitted inside.

Located within the Cathedral Square inside the Kremlin, this historic Cathedral was the site of the coronation of the Tsars. A simple exterior belies the very colourful interior. A simple visitors guide on a printed page in English is available inside the Cathedral.
