Orthodox Moscow

Discover the glories of Orthodox architecture in one of the world's great religious centers.

Moscow's claim to be the Third Rome was a reflection of its perceived role as the eastern center of Christian civilization after the fall of Constantinople. To better establish the city's credentials, a succession of Russian rulers vied with posterity to build ever more majestic and exquisite places of worship. Taking their cue from the cathedrals of Byzantium and the wooden churches of the older Russian principalities, generations of Russian and foreign architects made their contributions to the glory of God on earth, ranging in scale from the vast Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, the recently restored neoclassical edifice that has become a symbol of Moscow's post-Soviet revival, to the more discrete charms of the medieval churches in the Kolomenskoe Park-Museum.
