"Churches of Moscow" Cathedrals & Monasteries Tip by Pablos_new

Cathedrals & Monasteries, Moscow: 25 reviews and 37 photos

  Yauzskaya sq.
by Pablos_new

Favorite thing: There are a lot of churches in Moscow.
In XIX c (when Moscow was no bigger than Garden Ring) there were more than 2000 churches in Moscow. During years of Stalin's terror many of them were blown up. Now there are about 200-300 churches in Moscow, but nevertheless you can see golden cupolas and crosses from everywhere in the town.
