Kazan Cathedral is located just outside Resurrection Gate, close to Red Square.

It is actually a replica of the original – this one was built in 1993…the 1636 original was demolished as it got in the road of parades…

It is free to enter – and definitely worth a look, as it is a pretty little place.

Even better though, is to stop by throughout the day when the church bells chime…as there is still a man who manually rings the bells, and you can see him banging away – hope he has his ear plugs in!!

Address: Just off Red Square, through Resurrection Gate
