Overview

The golden-domed Annunciation Cathedral in the Kremlin was built in 1485-1489 by Russian architects. While the Cathedral itself housed private burial chapels for princes and tsars, the north and the west galleries were used as the main entrance to the imperial palace. The cathedral's galleries house an exhibition of 14th-16th century icons as well as unique frescos from the epoch of Ivan the Terrible. The cathedral is an excellent showcase of old Russian art.
