The Cathedral of Christ the Saviour Guided Tour


This temple was originally constructed on a vow given when banners and keys from conquered cities were brought to the temple. The height of the temple was 103 meters. In December 1931, the temple was blown up. Subsequently, the foundation ditch was used for the construction of a swimming pool. In 1994, the pool was closed and in January 1995 the reconstruction of the temple took place. Today the construction is completed and features both a working church and a museum, where excursions are regularly held. With its height of 105 metres (344 ft), it is considered to be the tallest Orthodox Christian church in the world.
