About Cathedral of Christ the Saviour

The Cathedral of Christ the Saviour is located on the northern bank of the Moskva River in Moscow, Russia. The pristine white structure, topped with gilded domes is the tallest Christian Orthodox church in the world.

The Cathedral is the second to stand on this site. The first hosted the world premiere of Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture in the year 1882. The original church was destroyed by Stalin’s army in 1931 to make way for a Palace of the Soviets. The palace was never constructed, and the current cathedral was rebuilt between 1995 and 2000. It bears an uncanny likeness to the original. Local Muscovites were so eager for the reconstruction to happen, around one million of them donated to the cause. Today, visitors can benefit from the Cathedrals modern telecommunications facilities, air-conditioning and underground parking. One highlight is the panoramic view which can be achieved from the 40-metre-high observation deck. The interior, although modern, is very impressive. Frescoes and artworks line the walls and domes, and intricately designed altars take centre stage. Candle lit chandeliers suspend elegantly from the ceilings, as the cathedral is bathed in light from the windows. Further Moscow landmarks lie a short walk away. The Kremlin, Dormition Cathedral Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts and Red Square are all close by.

Many of Moscow’s iconic landmarks are within walking distance, close to the Moskva River. Visitors who wish to experience the city transport system can travel via Moscow metro. The local station of Kropotkinskaya is a few minutes’ walk away from Cathedral of Christ the Saviour. Bus services operate along the river bank and stop close to the metro station. Taxi and Uber are also available throughout the city.

The original church was the idea of Tsar Alexander I. He commissioned his favourite architect Konstantin Thon to model the structure on Hagia Sophia in Constantinople. The construction lasted for around 40 years. Today, the cathedral is visited by tourists eager to discover its intriguing history and to see where the past meets the present. Although the cathedral is only a few decades old, it is fast becoming an iconic, statuesque landmark of Moscow.
