"Christ the Savior, on the Moscow river" Cathedral of Christ the Redeemer Tip by sennaya

Exquisitely built since 1961, the current church is beautiful inside and out. Modern craftsmanship still lives in russia if you have money!

In winter it is a refreshing warm oasis. Not many churches are heated.
Entrance is free, either through the main door, or down on the right side stairs through the chapel.

Often you might se a wedding or get lucky and hear a choral service.
