This cathedral is a replica of the one that was demolished in 1936. In 1637, the original Kazan Cathedral was consecrated and held the Icon of the Kazan Virgin. The Icon holds importance because it accompanied Prince Dmitry Pozharsky during his victorious campaign. The Icon of the Kazan Virgin housed in the Cathedral today is a copy since the original was stolen in 1904.
