Overview

The church is one of the best examples of Moscow's Baroque church architecture. It was built between 1709 and 1717 in honor of the battle of Poltava, by order of Peter the Great. This was one of his few contributions to Moscow's cityscape. As one of the few churches to escape closure during the clampdowns of the 20s and 30s, much religious treasure was transferred here; among icons present are the Icon of Vladimirskaia God's Mother and the Icon of St. Vasilii Blazhennyi from a cathedral formerly situated on Red Square.
