They will ask you: what is the most central square in Moscow? Say - Red. And wrong: after all, it is outside the Kremlin. And the central one is INSIDE the Kremlin walls, called Cathedral. The oldest in the capital. And also the highest - up to 145 meters above sea level. Located on Borovitsky Hill.
The Cathedral Square of the Moscow Kremlin is unusually beautiful, now no one remembers the legend that in pagan times the hill was called Witch Mountain, on which there was a temple. Rather, I remember a different story - how in 1147 Prince Yuri Dolgoruky built the first Moscow Kremlin here, around which the life of our ancestors swirled. And now ours. Let's go inside!
Address: Moscow, Cathedral Square
Coordinates: 55.50613, 37.17708
In the 15th century, the Italian architect Aristotle Fioravanti (and at that time many countries were inviting architects from the Renaissance country - Italy) came to build the Assumption Cathedral. Moreover, the master decided that the stone in the Moscow region was not hard enough, and he himself found a deposit of good clay on the Moscow River. He set up a brick factory there and in just 4 years built a temple, which remains the oldest of the fully preserved temples in the capital.
How the Italian was thanked is another story. I liked his work so much that they did not want to let Aristotle go home: work more! And when he tried to escape, they seized him and sent him to prison. Then, during a skirmish with the Tver principality, he was appointed chief of artillery. In general, Aristotle never returned to his homeland, he died in Russia.
After him, many other Italians took part in the construction of Kremlin churches and walls with battlements. For example, the Archangel Cathedral was erected by Aleviz Fryazin, who before that, being in captivity with the Crimean Khan, built the Bakhchisarai Palace.
After the revolution, the temples were closed. But they are not ruined. On the contrary, they were given to artists for the study and preservation of Russian icon-painting art. Since the 1950s, churches have become museums. And although from the end of the 20th century, services are sometimes held here again, you can take pictures in all the temples.
The Assumption Cathedral and Cathedral Square, on which it stands, are part of the Moscow Kremlin complex.
