Overview

The Archangel Cathedral was built in 1505-1508 by the Venetian architect Alevisio and dedicated to the Archangel Michael, the protector of warriors and monarchs engaged in their rightful deeds. From the 14th to the 18th century the cathedral was used as the burial place of Moscow princes and Russian Tsars. There are 46 tombs but unfortunately the stone sarcophagus were made during the 17th century which means they all look fairly similar. In the 18th century, the Cathedral was decorated with portraits of entombed princes and Tsars. The icon of the Archangel Michael (created in 1399) can be found inside.
