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!!
