The Кazan Cathedral


The Кazan Cathedral is well known as one of the best examples of Russian Classicism. The holy relic of the cathedral is the miracle-working icon of Mother-of-God of Kazan, also called Holy
Protectress of Russia. The Kazan Cathedral is the fi rst memorial church of the Patriotic war of 1812 against Napoléon Bonaparte and the French army that invaded Russian Empire. During the Soviet period Kazan Cathedral became the Museum of the History of Religion and Atheism, but in 1999 regained its sacred status.
