This place is for Christian in Moscow. Have to been there when you trip to Moscow. In my personal opinion, this place is much better than Red Square.

Magnificient cathedral built by Alexander I after Napoleon´s troops left Russia in 1812. The cellebration! Impressive Iconostases, and a great inspiration on russians traditional architecture.
