Cathedral of the Archangel (Arkhangelsky Sobor) Tours

star-3.5
10 Reviews
Cathedral of the Archangel (Arkhangelsky Sobor)
One of several churches standing on Cathedral Square inside Moscow’s Kremlin, the Cathedral of the Archangel was the main burial place for Russian tsars for centuries until the capital was temporarily moved to St. Petersburg. Built in the early 16th century, it represented the culmination of a grand building project initiated by Ivan the Great. Built in a style unique from the other Kremlin cathedrals, the Cathedral of the Archangel features Italian Renaissance design elements, as well as five domes representing Jesus and the four evangelists.

While many of the cathedral’s treasures are now displayed in the Kremlin Armory Museum, the 17th century iconostasis remains, as do many 16th and 17th century wall frescoes, painted by more than 100 different artists. The oldest icon in the cathedral, which depicts Archangel Michael in full armor, dates back to the 14th century. Visitors can see more than 40 tombs inside the cathedral, with those of the Grand Dukes and their families lining the southern wall and the vaults of the Romanovs standing in the center of the building.

Practical Info

To visit the cathedral, visitors must buy a ticket to the Kremlin’s Cathedral Square as a whole. The ticket office is in front of Kutafya Tower and is open from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. It is best reached by taking the Metro to Alexandrovskiy Sad or Biblioteka imeni Lenina. The cathedral and the Kremlin are also included in most tours of Moscow’s highlights.

We will explore the very heart of Russia (and its brains as well) - the magnificent Kremlin of Moscow. We will explore the most visited museum in Moscow and we will enjoy some of the less-visited Kremlin spaces as well. You will have an insider experience, which you will never have if you visit the Kremlin on your own or with an audioguide. Please note, that there are no official museum tours to the Kremlin held in English. We will meet close to the entrance to the Kremlin territory and after a brief introduction will embark to the journey through different ages and centuries. You will learn a little bit about the history of Russia. You will make your own opinion about medieval Russian and local Games of Thrones. On our tour, we will explore the main territory of Kremlin and Cathedrals, where Grand Princes of Russia were coronated and where they were buried and we will enjoy the Tsar-Bell which never rang and the Tsar-Cannon, which never shot.
