In 1931, the Resurrection Gate was demolished, together with almost the entire Kitai-gorod Wall, as part of the urban street widening project to allow for the military parades of the Soviet. The Gate and the Chapel were rebuilt in 1995. Historically, the Resurrection Gate was one of the gates in the Kitai-Gorod wall which was reputed to be the greatest fortification of ancient Moscow. Right in front of the gate there is the Kilometer Zero sign "Nulevogo kilometra" – this is the centre of Moscow and the starting point for measuring all distances in Russia.

If you go to Red Square, you see these gates. If you’re facing the State Historical Museum from Red Square, they’re on the right. You’ll pass through them if you go out of Red Square that way. As some reviewers have noted, these are replicas built after the fall of communism. The original we’re torn down by Stalin to make way for tanks and such to come into Red Square. Worth a photo op but not really much of an attraction in its own right.

Resurrection Gate marks the northern entrance to the Red Square. The signature red colour forms a beautiful landscape and blends perfectly with the Kremlin. However, this is only a reconstruction in 1995 as the original one was demolished in the 1930s.

Surprisingly, but Voskresenskie (Resurrection) gates at the time had a real defensive functionality. Moreover, it was from it that the construction of the protective wall began. It was a real fortress wall of red baked brick. There were also double gates  and grids to lock them. In the two-tiered chambers and in the two octagonal towers above them, firearms were later placed, there were gunners and archers in the event of an enemy attack and siege. There were embrasures, then turned to the window. Much later, these gates were intended for the main entrance to the Red square. And if foreign embassies came to be presented, the tsar could look at them from above from the galleries. The chapel was put later – for the sake of the sacred icon, or rather, its spisok (copy) from the monasteries on mount Athos. The Bolsheviks, of course, demolished the gates so that during the revolutionary parades the columns could pass freely to the Red square.  Now the gates and the chapel have been restored, but it does not matter. Now it's just a decoration. Although the parade processions pass through them occasionally.
