Stunning Cathedral, one of the centrepiece of Kazans Kremlin. The exterior is beautiful and blends in rrally well with the elegant buildings all around it. Total contrast in its white facade with the leaning red bricked Suyumbike Tower beside it. Gorgeous blue in the roof....More

Love the architecture of this cathedral, which is a diversity compared to other cathedrals in Moscow or St Petersburg. It is located just near Kul Sharif Mosque. Unfortunately, did not have time to enter to see the interior. Would love to come back and see.
