Red Square/Kremlin, Moscow: 75 reviews and 89 photos
Favorite thing: The history of the Archangel's Cathedral of the Moscow Kremlin dates back to the XIV century: in 1333, the first Great Moscow Prince Ivan Kalita (Money-bag) ordered to lay the foundation of a white-stone church devoted to St. Archangel Michael respected in Rus as a guardian of soldiers and Russian princes in their feats of arms.
Fondest memory: The cathedral was first adorned with wall-painting in the reign of Ivan the Terrible.
The ancient murals have not survived except small fragments on pillars and several compositions of the altar and the tsars shrine. In 1652-1666, the cathedral was painted a new by a big team of Russian masters.
