Description

Before the capital was briefly moved to St. Petersburg, the Cathedral of the Archangel was the primary resting place for Russian tsars. It was built in the early 16th century and was the result of a grand construction scheme started by Ivan the Great. In the cathedral, the oldest icon shows Archangel Michael in full armour, dating back to the 14th century.
