Kremlin, Moscow: 230 reviews and 425 photos
The Archangel's Cathedral is a tomb of Grand dukes and Tsars. I visited it many times from my childhood. Last time it happened in March of 2015.
Here all the Russian princes, grandprinces and tsars from Ivan Kalita onwards had their last resting-place (with the exceptionof Boris Godunov, who, with his wife, is buried inthe Monastery of the Trinity at Sergiev Posad).
It was built in 1505-1508 by Alevis Novi. Earlier on this place there was a church of XII century, devoted to Archangel Michael who is considered the patron of Russian Tsars in military affairs. In 1333 at Ivan Kalita the first stone church has been constructed. Traditional forms and the plan of Russian five-domed temple are combined with features of the Venetian architecture of Renaissance in architectural shape of the Cathedral.
Unfortunately it's forbidden to take video and photo inside. Only a few from me, including the Tomb of Dmitry Donskoy.
