In this cathedral you can find the wonderful icons made by Teofane.
Originally Ivan III used this cathedral as family chapel and at that time the building had just three domes.
Later Ivan the terrible wanted the cathedral to be modified adding 6 domes, building chapels in any corner and spreading gold all over the roof.
