This church at Cathedral Square is most notable for what lies underneath it - the burial grounds of most of Russia's rulers up until the 1690s - as well as the muraled walls showing who lies beneath.

More limited artwork than some of the other cathedrals within the Kremlin (although there are some interesting items), but this cathedral is noteworthy for the 19 graves of Romanov family members. Especially interesting that Ivan the Terrible is buried here. As with each of the...More

This is one of several pretty little churches located inside the Kremlin proper. The exterior looks impressive enough but the frescoes inside are really worth a look. It's a shame that photography isn't allowed inside (this or any of the other churches here, and more...More

There is nothing special for this church. It's just a church. A lot of paintings inside. There are much beautiful churches in Moscow, but once you are inside Kremlin, this is one of the options. You need to put 15-20 mins to visit it.

Because it is surounded by even more beautful Churches and Cathedrals, this Cathedral is a bit underrated. But take a look inside!

Going inside is a great experience because of the energy. You have to experience it there. Spend at least half an hour

The single golden- domed and several silver- domed Cathedral in Cathedral Square is the burial ground of Ivan the Great and the princes. The internal part is more impressive than the external outlook. Worth to pay a visit inside.

Impressive cathedral in the Kremlin. Great iconostases, reliquaries and the tombs of Ivan the Terrible and sons, as well as members of the Riurik and Romanov dynasties.

This Cathedral dominates the exit from Cathedral Square. A single, large, Golden Dome draws the eye, but the interior is far better than the exterior which is quite plain. As part of the tour of the interior of the Kremlin, it is worth stepping inside.
