Cathedral of the Assumption

Highly recommended
Italian Renaissance architect Aristote Fioravanti designed the Cathedral of the Assumption (1475-1479) with its dazzling harmony, 17C murals on the main facade, frescoes on a gold background and icons. The sculpted wooden throne of Monomaque evokes the figure of Ivan IV the Terrible who, like many tsars, was crowned in this important centre of the Orthodox Church.
