There is nothing special for this church. It's just a church. A lot of paintings inside. There are much beautiful churches in Moscow, but once you are inside Kremlin, this is one of the options. You need to put 15-20 mins to visit it.

This small yet important neighbourhood is full of
state institutions and offices. To understand where
modern Russia began, go to the Kremlin and State
Historical Museum on Red Square. After satisfying your
historical curiosities, indulge in modern pleasures at
GUM Department Store - not just for the sake of
shopping but for the sake of architectural pleasure as
well.
