Cathedral of the Annunciation

The Annunciation Cathedral of the Kazan Kremlin is the most ancient historical and architectural monument in Kazan. The cathedral was founded on October 4, 1552, by Ivan the Terrible's order. Searchers note the influence of the Tatar architectural art in the building of the cathedral. In 1841-1846 the cathedral was extended to the west, to the north and to the south. The former side-altars became part of the principal building of the cathedral; the refectory and the porch were demolished. The cathedral was closed in September 1918. Only by the thousandth anniversary of Kazan in 2005, after having been misused for long years, the cathedral was restored and opened for the worshippers.
