This church at Cathedral Square is most notable for what lies underneath it - the burial grounds of most of Russia's rulers up until the 1690s - as well as the muraled walls showing who lies beneath.

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.

Because it is surounded by even more beautful Churches and Cathedrals, this Cathedral is a bit underrated. But take a look inside!

The single golden- domed and several silver- domed Cathedral in Cathedral Square is the burial ground of Ivan the Great and the princes. The internal part is more impressive than the external outlook. Worth to pay a visit inside.

Impressive cathedral in the Kremlin. Great iconostases, reliquaries and the tombs of Ivan the Terrible and sons, as well as members of the Riurik and Romanov dynasties.

This Cathedral dominates the exit from Cathedral Square. A single, large, Golden Dome draws the eye, but the interior is far better than the exterior which is quite plain. As part of the tour of the interior of the Kremlin, it is worth stepping inside.
