Moscow Churches

The Russian Orthodox Church has more than 600 places of worship in Moscow - its historical home - encompassing centuries of history and a huge range of architectural style, from the awe-inspiring medieval cathedrals of the Kremlin to the more intimate private chapels of the boyars, all with a distinctly Russian flavor.

St. Basil's Cathedral
Probably the most famous building in the city, St. Basil's can't fail to impress with its bright colours and weird and wonderful forms.

The Cathedral of Christ the Saviour
This recently restored neoclassical edifice is a testament to the renaissance of the Orthodox Church since the fall of the Soviet Union.

The Nodvodevichy Convent
One of the ring of fortified monasteries that guarded medieval Moscow, this glorious ensemble of buildings is perennially popular with visitors.
