Peter and Paul's Cathedral

The Peter and Paul's Cathedral is the most valuable architectural monument of the 18th c. and one of the sacred symbols of Kazan. The cathedral was built in 1723-1726 by merchant Mikhlyaev in honor of Peter the Great's visit to Kazan. It was erected on the spot of the wooden Peter's church. The cathedral represents a 52-meter high two-tier vaulted construction decorated with a fine ornament in the form of flowers, herbs and grape vines. Its walls are richly painted and decorated with medallions with evangelic scenes. The 7-tier gold-plated iconostasis in the Russian baroque style has been preserved in the cathedral.
