Church of the Resurection in Kadashi

  2-y Kadashevsky per. 7      (+7) 495 953 13 19     04 Mar 2019
Once the tallest building in Zamoskvoreche. Since the construction of the current building in 1687 in the unique Moscow Baroque style, it has been robbed, vandalised and used as a stable by Napoleonic troops, a KGB archive and a recreational club for a nearby sausage factory. Its bell, which supposedly weighed over six tonnes, is rumoured to be kept in the Bolshoy Theatre and used for productions of Boris Godunov. Its most recent misfortune is the so-called "Battle for Kadashi". Attempts by the mayor of Moscow in the last few years to knock down historical buildings surrounding the church and replace them with a luxury apartment and office complex were met with some hostility from the locals. The possibility of being surrounded by apartment blocks still stands, but inside, the church's icons and friezes retain their quiet solemnity, oblivious to any events outside.
